Vishay Intertechnology Introduces Hybrid Solid-State Relays
MALVERN, Pa, Sept. 15, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE:VSH) today introduced the first three devices in its new VOR family of hybrid solid-state relays designed to deliver high reliability and noiseless switching for telecommunications, industrial, security system, and metering applications.
As replacements for traditional mechanical relays with lower reliability and shorter lifetimes, the new Vishay Semiconductors 1 Form A VOR1142A6, VOR1142B6, and VOR1142M4 provide high input-to-output isolation, current limit protection, and low power consumption.The relays released today are normally open single-pole, single-throw (SPST) switches. Allowing for simple customization, the devices feature a modular construction consisting of a GaAIAs (gallium aluminum arsenide) IRED actuation control and MOSFETs for the switch output.The single-channel relays are offered in DIP-6 (VOR1142A6), SMDDiscrete miniature capacitors which are packaged without leads and fastened directly to foil patterns.-6 (VOR1142B6), and SOP-4 (VOR1142M4) packages. Devices in the SMDDiscrete miniature capacitors which are packaged without leads and fastened directly to foil patterns.-6 and DIP-6 packages offer a high isolation testtest is test voltage of 5300 V/1 min, while devices in the smaller SOP-4 offer an isolation testtest is test voltage of 3750 V/1 min. All relays offer low typical on-resistance of 22 Ω, high load current of 140 mA, load voltage of 400 V, and very low turn-on current of 0.25 mA typical. The devices are VDE-and UL-certified to meet reinforced insulation requirements for most applications.
