RELAYS, HYBRID AND SOLID STATE, TIME DELAY, GENERAL SPECIFICATION FOR
|Publication Date:||11 July 2019|
This specification establishes the general requirements for time delay relays that are a combination of hybrid microcircuits, solid state electronics with an integral electromagnetic relay, or solid state output. Relays covered by this specification are intended for use in aerospace and associated ground support electrical and electronic systems and equipment (see 6.1). For additional application and caution information see 6.1.
Relays conforming to this specification are intended for use in dc or ac (single or polyphase) electrical systems as a means of timing and controlling the making and breaking of circuits for... View More
Relays conforming to this specification are intended for use in dc or ac (single or polyphase) electrical systems as a means of timing and controlling the making and breaking of circuits for electrically operated equipment and devices. Their principal areas of application, such as aircraft, missiles, spacecraft, and ground support equipment, does not preclude the use of these relays in other military applications. Time delay relays covered by this specification are intended to be able to operate satisfactorily in military systems under the following demanding conditions: Operating temperature range of -70°C to +125°C; 1,100 g's of shock; and reduced susceptibility to corrosion in salt water environments. These requirements are verified under a qualification system. Thermal time delay relays are excluded from this specification. The following caution statements apply:
a. The use of any coil voltage less than the rated voltage will compromise the operation of the relay.
b. Transfer relay contacts should not be used to ground load in one position and to 115 V terminal in another position. Transfer relay contacts should not be used to transfer load between phases, nor between unsynchronized ac sources.
c. Pick-up, hold, and dropout voltages are for test purposes only and are not to be used as design criteria.View Less
