Eaton Launches Monitoring and Alternating Relays Product Line

To Bolster Protection in Control Systems

PITTSBURGH ... Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation is launching a new series of monitoring and alternating relays. The relays protect control systems from premature equipment failure and danger to personnel caused by voltage faults, current conditions or excessive load requirements.

Eaton’s broad portfolio of relays includes these new monitoring and alternating devices, as well as a complete line of general purpose, machine tool, ground fault and specialty relays for industrial applications.

“Eaton’s complete logic and control package allows us to address customers’ unique challenges and, at the same time, provide whole systems solutions – from control and protection, to wiring, termination and monitoring,” says Zari Talebi, marketing communications specialist. “Our package includes a broad portfolio of relays, as well as complete motor control, logic and protection product lines.”

Eaton can customize the monitoring and alternating relays quickly and efficiently to meet unique application parameters. Examples of typical customizations include:

• Fixed settings (with or without knobs)

• Remote adjustments

• Special pin configurations

The expanded monitoring and alternating relays product line includes:

• Phase monitoring: D65 Series provides protection against voltage faults on three-phase systems, Eaton’s plug-in and surface mount phase monitoring relays protect against a variety of voltage conditions.

• Voltage monitoring: D65V Series monitors AC single-phase (50/60 Hz) or DC voltages to protect equipment against voltage fault conditions.

• Current monitoring: D65C Series offers a broad range of current monitoring relays, it is a reliable way to monitor AC single-phase currents for over- or undercurrent conditions in three current ranges: 0.1 – 1A, 0.5 – 5A, and 1 – 10A.

• Alternating: D85 Series equalizes the run time of two loads through the use of control switches (float switch, manual switch, timing relay, pressure switch, etc).
