The G6K low-signal electromechanical relay features a profile of 5.3 X 10.2 X 6.7 mm and allows high-density mounting. Because of its construction, this relay can be surface-mounted using the same tape and reel system as other small components on pc-boards. The G6K incorporates a multi-bend lead frame design that starts at the top, rather than at the bottom, of the relay. This design increases lead compliance and reduces stress on the solder joint by 75%.
