Subject: Reliability of PCB-Mounted relays
MIL-HDBK-217 is very severe when it comes to the usage of relays in avionics equipment in the AIF and ARW environments. A typical failure rate given for the following relay, in the AIF environment at 85 degr C, is 15: Relay, High Speed, armature balanced & short, 5V, DPDT, 1A, - TQ2-5V. (Cyclic rate 3.0, Current ratio 42, resistive load.) Have you perhaps got any feild data available which might suggest a better reliability for this type of relay under the above circumstances? or What is your general experience/opinion in this regard?
