ST Vital Relays, electrical hardware, signal enclosures, accessories
ST vital relays in service today governing the safe movement of trains and protecting highway grade crossings
ST Series vital relays are compact plug-in circuit switching elements housed within a clear polycarbonate case for use in modern railway systems. These relays incorporate the required control characteristics as well as operating security for this application. ST-1 and ST-2 relays ﬁt into size 1 and 2 sockets already in use commonly throughout the industry. Selected models are interchangeable with other manufacturers’ existing types of relays as well.
Each relay carries a relay registration plate unique to that speciﬁc type. Sockets have uniform indexing pins to ensure insertion of the proper relay for each circuit function. All contact and coil connections are brought out through the base of the relay as spring prongs. The socket has wedge-shaped plug insulators with ﬂat metal terminals on both the upper and lower surfaces.
Relays are guided into the socket by two rods so that each pair of prongs engage their respective socket terminals, making a ﬁrm, low resistance contact. The socket terminals are available in either the solder or crimp types. Terminals are easily removed from the back of the socket for making wiring changes without unplugging the relay.
