Flex Connectors’ flex7 lighting controls now include specially made relays for high inrush current created by LED fittings


LED lighting is growing in popularity, and has many advantages over traditional lighting types. One thing that designers and installers must consider however, is the higher inrush current of LED devices compared to incandescent lighting.

A Simple Solution

Flex Connectors have catered for this, by adding a special relay to all our lighting controls. The high inrush relay (up to 120A) incorporates ‘pre-make’ contacts, which quite simply absorb the substantial inrush current. This means the main contacts only need to handle the quiescent load current, and as a result the lifetime of the relay is increased dramatically.
