Stuttgart -- Johnson Electric today announced a disconnect relay product line for smart electric meters. The remote disconnect function in a smart meter aligns with the requirements of the electric power industry’s smart grid initiative. The Ledex-EM product line is a bi-stable latching relay designed to provide the highest electrical performance in a compact package.
The Ledex-EM product line provides industry-leading switching performance and reliability, resulting from a unique design that minimizes contact bounce and resistance. This disconnect relay has the highest magnetic tamper resistance in any position, preventing switching by an external magnetic field. The Ledex-EM product line is designed with a circuit breaking capacity up to 120Amps. For smart meter design flexibility the product line can be customized for multiple control pin-out positions and special terminals.
“This innovative Ledex-EM product line results from design collaboration between our engineering centers in Germany, USA and China” said Jim Dick, Johnson Electric’s senior vice president of Strategic Marketing.
