  • 5 or 10 contacts
  • Equivalent function to MVAJ21
  • 2HSM512 specification




The 6RJ21 is a high burden self reset tripping relay suitable for application in high security circuit breaker tripping circuits & in particular where the initiating contact may be remote from the relay. The high burden may also allow the satisfactory operation of external series elements.

The 6RJ21 has a high burden to provide immunity to capacitance discharge currents & power to the coil is cut off at operation or is economized to a low figure to provide thermal protection.

High burden tripping relays are designed to withstand the 10uF capacitor discharge test such that the relay will not operate when a 10uF capacitor charged to 120% of nominal operating voltage is applied across the coil of the relay.

The contacts & trip flag indication operate on application of a control voltage. Contacts are reset upon removal of the control voltage. The flag is reset using the front panel push button provided the contacts are in the reset position.
