element14’s robotics and industrial automation range boosted with Asia Pacific introduction of TE Connectivity relays


Compact relays ideally suited to helping engineers overcome space restriction challenges
Singapore, 29 June 2012 –– element14 (formerly Farnell), the first information portal, collaborative community and electronics store for design engineers and electronics enthusiasts, introduces TE Connectivity’s Schrack series of force guided relays, which can be widely used in robotics and industrial automation applications. 
Employing state-of-the-art technology and precision engineering, TE Connectivity’s Schrack relays have a higher level of relay sensitivity (ratio of input coil power to switching capacity) than competitive solutions. Thanks to the innovative use of advanced new plastic contact materials, Schrack relay users also benefit from increased switching capacity and insulation properties. 
TE Connectivity Schrack relays feature 4 poles with force guided contacts in accordance with EN 50205 standards. These relays are commonly used in applications such as emergency shut-off, process control, machine control, elevator and escalator control, and safety relays, which are widely used over many different industries including computing, automotive, telecommunication, military and aerospace, medical, industrial/instrumentation, and consumer market segments.
TE’s broad line of relays come with add-on options for enclosure, termination, input, contact arrangement and rating. The relays are designed specifically to operate in rigorous environments where the challenges of shock, vibration, temperature and/or altitude are encountered such as military and aerospace applications.
Within the current edition of ‘element14 Features’ showcasing solutions and over 15,000 products for industrial manufacturing and robotics, engineers can search efficiently from the complete compilation of components and solutions, and enjoy promotions on various products. A dedicated section on design resources including application guides, white papers and training material is available to help accelerate the design process. In addition, element14’s Community provides an online hub where engineers, electronics enthusiasts and experts can gather and discuss their latest projects.
element14’s dedicated team of technical experts have combined proprietary intelligence with the latest information from the world’s top electronics suppliers to provide the most comprehensive technical knowledge and solutions for engineers, conveniently located at its technical microsites on robotics, sensing, industrial automation, instrumentation and measurement, among others. Design tools and resources which can easily be accessed online help electronics design engineers significantly accelerate their design cycles and reduce time-to-market.
