Abstract:

This report documents findings on the non-operating reliability of relays. The study covers 2086 million part-hours. Elements of relay design and of the processes at the contacts are reviewed. The possibilities of solid state and saturable core alternatives are described. Recommendations include periodic test and inclusion of oxygen in the fill gas. This information is part of a research program being conducted by the U.S. Army Missile R and D Command, Redstone Arsenal, Alabama. The objective of this program is the development of non-operating storage reliability prediction and assurance techniques for missile materiel. This report updates and replaces report LC-76-EM3 dated May 1976. Author
