KRDB Series ultra-compact, encapsulated, low-cost time-delay relays are delay-on-break timers. Input voltage must be applied to the input at all times prior to and during timing. Upon closure of the initiate switch, the relay energizes and remains energized if no further action is taken. When the initiate switch is opened, the time delay is started. At the conclusion of the delay, the output relay de-energizes. The use of surface-mount components makes it possible to miniaturize the circuitry without sacrificing performance and reliability.
