Energy saving starts in the details and intricacies: from the most obvious parameters, such as lighting with low energy consumption, all the way to energy-saving components. A pillar for these types of energy savings is the Panasonic DW relay.

Smart home and smart lighting is key for the revolution in green energy. The light emitters most commonly used for this purpose are not only beneficial, but also can be demanding for electrical components. Especially capacitive loads which occur in ballasts and drivers can create high inrush currents. The new Panasonic DW- high inrush type relay can easily handle such loads and fulfills all normative requirements.

Green energy only makes sense if you also go the whole nine yards on the components side. The DW relay is available as a latching type. It offers high switching performance and low to zero energy consumption at the same time. The permanent magnet maintains the current state, meaning there is no constant energy consumption whatsoever. Polarized relays are therefore undoubtedly highly efficient and contribute to the improvement of power consumption of your application.
