Johnson Electric has launched a new disconnect relay product line, Ledex-EM for smart electric meters in Germany.

The remote disconnect function in a smart meter aligns with the requirements of the electric power industry’s smart grid initiative.

The Ledex-EM product line is designed with a circuit breaking capacity up to 120Amp will provide the highest electrical performance in a compact package.

The product line provides industry-leading switching performance and reliability, resulting from a unique design that minimizes contact bounce and resistance.

For smart meter design flexibility, the product line can be customized for multiple control pin-out positions and special terminals.

Johnson Electric senior vice president of strategic marketing Jim Dick said this product line results from design collaboration between engineering centers in Germany, USA and China.
