KT Reed Relays

KT Reed Relays

The KT Series Reed Relays integrate high technology packed into a small footprint. Available in either surface mount or through hole mounting, the KT relay measures just L30 x W8.6 x H10.6mm. Additionally, the KT Relay series offer excellent isolation resistance at >= 1013Ω and an isolation voltage between the coil and contact of >= 7kVDC. Both its high isolation characteristics and very small size make these KT relays highly suitable for green applications such as solar photovoltaic technology. They are particularly helpful in measuring isolation resistance across several components within a solar system prior to grid connection preventing injury or further current leakages.
