  • Minature Relay for Aux. PC Board

    Need model # and voltage requirements for relay that plugs into 8 pin socket on later model aux. pc board and #3 board in place of big silver latching relay. Thanks.

    These relays should be soldered into those boards, I don't recall any pugging into a socket. You would be FAR better off by pitching the 5 boards and getting Omega Tek MK-70 boards! Then you can remove the aux board completely from the chassis.

      Re: Minature Relay for Aux. PC Board

      The relays themsleves (many of them, anyway), were made by Potter and Brumfield if I remember right... unfortunately, I think they may have been made specifically for the AMF chassis, and not a "stock" item.

      That little bugger can be a pain in the arse to fix. I would recommend calling up Stahl's or some other company that refurbs chassis, and ask them if you could get a couple AUX boards that they pulled out of chassis... then you have only a couple wires to deal with. Any chassis that was converted to Omega-Tek no longer needs the AUX board... they should have a mess of them.

      Once you have a working AUX board in hand, try removing the one that's in the chassis completely. If it runs normally without it, leave it out. If you start to get screwy problems, put the working AUX back in it's place.

      And again, if you can, switch to Omega boards... even if it's only one every month or two. The time and money saved just in chassis troubleshooting and repair will easily justify the low cost of the OT boards. And you will definitely appreciate the chassis uptime compared to 5-boards. I have chassis that were converted well over 5 years ago, and had the relays and contactor points replaced at the same time... they're still running w/ no maintenance other than blowing the dust out of them occasionally. That was even beyond a dream with 5-boards to be able to claim something like that.

              Jim was going to do that at one point, but he decided against it from a volume point. Sine MP's work well when they don't have a problem *duh* not much to be gained by redesigning the MP. The 5 boards though...a LOT to be gained!
