What is the heat-resistant temperature for a relay when manually soldering, and what are the precautions for manual soldering?

ID: FAQE10059E



Please refer to Explanation about manual soladering for our relays.


  1. After smoothing the iron tip, solder according to the following conditions:
    • Soldering iron: 30 to 60 W
    • Iron tip temperature: 350°C
    • Soldering time: Within about 3 seconds
  2. Use non-corrosive rosin for the flux because of the compatibility with the relay components.
    Use an alcohol solvent with less chemical action for flux.
  3. When soldering the terminals, make sure that no solder, flux, or solvent adheres to any part other than the terminals. If solder, flux, and/or solvent enters the inside, it could cause insulation degradation and poor contact.

Quick tips

Note that, as shown in the figure below, some solders have a cut surface to prevent flux from scattering.

Prevent flux from scattering

We have prepared a technical support page dedicated to high-capacity relays that explains in detail "I don't know" when using high-current, high-voltage PCB power relays, such as back EMF voltage (Zener diode and varistor) of the coil, holding voltage application circuit, recommended conditions for high-current substrate flow solder, the influence of magnetic fields, and precautions when connecting in series and parallel. Please also use this as well.
