‘Excellently average’ PhotoMOS relays

30 May 2022 Switches, Relays & Keypads

Sometimes it is not the superlative performance features that make a product launch particularly interesting, but its sheer relevance for many markets. With the new AQY215S 100 V load voltage type, Panasonic Industry complements its GU (General Use) series of MOSFET relays in the middle of the feature scale.

Coming in a compact SOP 4-pin package just like its 60 V, 350 V and 400 V siblings, the new 100 V type is expected to be an ideal choice for a wide range of robotics applications, PLCs, I/O modules, and test and measurement equipment.

“The name ‘General Use series’ speaks for itself. With its low-level off-state leakage current of maximum 1 μA, small package size and proven reliability and efficiency, we are now more than happy to add a new model to our successful GU family of ‘PhotoMOS allrounders’,” described the company’s Michael Renner. “Average, but excellent.”
