Correct Use

Coil Voltage Reduction (Holding Voltage) after Relay Operation
  • If the coil voltage is reduced to the holding voltage after Relay operation, first apply the rated voltage to the coil for at least 100 ms, as shown below.
  • A voltage of at least 40% of the rated voltage is required for the coil holding voltage. Do not allow voltage fluctuations to cause the coil holding voltage to fall below this level.
Coil Voltage Reduction (Holding Voltage) after Relay Operation
  Applied coil voltage Coil resistance Power consumption
Rated voltage 100% 125Ω (5 VDC)
720Ω (12 VDC)
2880Ω (24 VDC)
Approx. 200 mW
Holding voltage 40% Approx. 32 mW
Power consumption reduction of coil with pulse width modulation (PWM)
  • Models with PWM drive capability (-PW) can reduce coil holding current with PWM control. This function reduces power consumption by reducing the current held by coil.
  • Apply the rated voltage for at least 100 ms at the time of relay operation.
  • The following are our verification conditions. When using, it be sure to check the actual machine under the actual usage conditions.
