FIRST is a leading global manufacturer of switching technologies designed specifically for harsh environments in many markets. Manufacturing locations in France, New York, and India
Non Latching Relays
Hermetically sealed Non Latching Relays for Harsh Environments
An electromechanical Non Latching Relay is an electrical switching device. Its function corresponds to a mechanical switch, which is electrically actuated. The main advantages are the electrical isolation of the driving system and the load side, this insulation resistance of the open contacts, as well as the low resistance of the closed contacts.

Hermetically sealed Latching Relays for Harsh Environments
An electromechanical Latching relay is an electrical switching device. Its function corresponds to a mechanical switch, which is electrically actuated Latching relays are types that remain in the last switching to which they were driven, without requiring continuous power to achieve it.
Qualified to M83536
Time Delay Relays
Timers for Harsh Environments
FIRST Time Delay relays are relays which includes an electronic timer which allows the relay to switch on an event based on time. Three main operating modes are available. Time delay on Operate, Time delay on Release and Time delay on Command. Time period can be fixed or adjustable with external components.

Sockets for Hermetically sealed relays in Harsh Environments
FIRST manufactured sockets are an interface between the relay and the circuit in which is assembled. This circuit can be wired or embedded in a PCB. Sockets function as a relay base on which the relay will be positioned. Many options exist (type of cabling, type of housing, type of fixing, type of connection, type of keying…)
