Can a relay be mounted in any direction?

ID: FAQE10051E



Typically the mounting direction is not specified, but some models may have the mounting direction in its specification. Check the datasheet before mounting.


Depending on the operating type and structure of the relay, some relays are easily affected by the mounting direction and others are not.
Normally, the operating characteristics in any mounting direction are within the standard range. However, for models with a large change in operating characteristics depending on the mounting direction, the direction may be specified or conditions may be added.
