STANDEX-MEDER ANNOUNCES KT SERIES OF HIGH ISOLATION REED RELAYS FOR SURFACE OR THROUGH-HOLE MOUNTING

Ideal for green applications requiring high isolation characteristics and small profile

Standex-Meder Electronics, a manufacturer of standard and custom electro-magnetic components, including magnetics products and reed switch-based solutions, announces its KT Series of high isolation reed relays. The KT Series is ideal for use in green applications, such as photovoltaic technology or hybrid vehicles. It is particularly helpful in measuring isolation resistance across several components in a solar energy system prior to grid connection, preventing injury or further current leakages.


The KT Series offers isolation resistance greater than or equal to 1013Ω, and an isolation voltage between the coil and contact of over 7kVDC. Measuring only L30 x W8.6 x H10.6mm, the series provides these high isolation characteristics in a very small package. It is available in three coil voltages of 5V, 12V, and 24V, and all three versions are available in either surface or through-hole mounting. They are packaged in a hermetically sealed thermoset molded encapsulation, with switching voltages of 1000V and coil resistances of 150 Ohms.

Like all of Standex-Meder's high isolation reed relays, the KT series has dynamically tested contacts and can perform millions of reliable operations. It is RoHS compliant and will be available for mass production in January, 2013.

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
