Abstract : The purpose of this program is to obtain performance information on SPDU Dry-Reed Capsules and to provide designs and performance information on relays using these capsules. Operating characteristics on an initial run of capsules is reported. Preliminary data is shown on Load Determining Life Tests at four load levels, 1/4, 3/8, 1/2 and 3/4 amp., at cycling rate of 32 cpm. Fault Sensor and Load Determining Test Circuits were developed and utilized. (Author)
