HARRISBURG, PA. –   The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) has approved TE for its CII line of high-performance time delay relays
TE Connectivity (TE) announces receipt of qualification approval from the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) for its CII line of high-performance time delay relays. (The governing military specifications are MIL-PRF-83726/28, 29, 30, and 31.) The DLA is the Department of Defense’s largest logistics combat support agency, providing worldwide logistics support to the military services as well as several civilian agencies and foreign countries.

“This DLA qualification approval signals an important recognition for TE’s broad range of high-performance relays for the aerospace and defense market,” said Don Stalker, Product Manager, TE Aerospace, Defense & Marine. “These time delay relays broadens our offering of military approved high-performance relays and help us provide our customers with a one-stop shopping experience.”

The mid-range time delay relays combine multiple functions into a single package and are specifically designed for operation in extremes of temperature, shock, vibration and altitude. This series of time delay relays incorporates proven electromechanical relay design features along with advanced digital timing circuitry. They are hermetically sealed and provide a variety of mounting configurations. All have contact ratings of 10 Amps and include four functional versions:

· Delay on operate, fixed
· Delay on operate, adjustable
· Delay on release, fixed
· Delay on release, adjustable

Available customizing options include: extended timing ranges, tighter timing tolerances, custom header and mounting, and 115 VAC, 60 Hz. input types. With a temperature range of minus 55 degrees Celsius to 85 degrees Celsius or minus 55 degrees Celsius to 125 degrees Celsius, the time delay relays offer numerous output options which include 4A rated contacts in 1-4 form C (SPDT-4PDT) arrangements and 10A rated contacts in 1-2 form C (SPDT-DPDT) arrangements. Military approved subminiature digital timing modules are also available.
