Solar Power Systems / Energy Systems

Relays are used for power control in solar power systems such as photovoltaic (PV) power generation systems, energy-efficient systems such as DC power distribution systems, Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems, and smart meters. 
Relays are selected mainly for the capacity (current/voltage) that the systems require.

eCall System

The eCall system is designed to improve emergency response times following a traffic accident. The Emergency Call Unit (ECU) automatically transmits accident information to emergency response services, such as the vehicle’s location and allows emergency responders to speak with passengers. This greatly reduces the initial response time. 
Signal relays (FTR-B3 or FTR-B4 series) are used inside of the ECU.

DC Power Supply in Data Centers

Repeated AC/DC and DC/AC conversions through AC distribution systems cause a 20% to 30% energy loss.
DC power distribution reduces such conversion loss and therefore, increases energy efficiency.
