Pluggable relays for industrial, commercial applications
Weidmuller’s generation of pluggable relays meet a wide range of industrial switching requirements.
Weidmuller’s new generation of pluggable relays meet a wide range of industrial switching requirements. The DRM Series relay complements Weidmuller’s proven electromechanical and solid-state relays that are installed in millions of devices worldwide.
The DRM Series relays are ideal for most industrial and commercial applications. They are available in 2 and 4 changeover versions for ac and dc coil input voltages. The relay contacts are made from a heavy electroplated silver alloy that measures 270 microns thick. This precious metal contact surface allows for a wide range of loads, from only a few milliamps up to 10 amps per contact, and ensures added reliability and extended relay life. In addition, DRM Series relays offer full load switching capability over a wide temperature range (-40°C to +60°C) without the need for de-rating. All DRM relays can be used in temperatures up to +80°C with de-rated switching capabilities.
The compact DRM Series relays provide optional features that increase reliability and simplify installation. An integrated LED with a unique color for the ac and dc coils provides clear status indication and quick trouble shooting. Color-coded test levers for mechanical contact operation enable users to simulate switching status, for simplified commissioning and service.
The DIN-rail mountable relay sockets feature high quality screw terminals that accept stripped wire, insulated bootlace ferrules or insulated fork lugs.
All products in Weidmuller’s DRM Seriesare CE and cURus approved and RoHS compliant, for use in industrial applications worldwide.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
