Omron relays from China !

Recommended Posts

Hi, I ordered some Omron relays on E bay and they came from China, do we recon they will be moody copies or ok ? In the UK its hard to get them and ordering from the states needs a minimum order of loads. cheers

This obsession with Omron relays I don't quite understand... Sure, they're quality parts, but the Bosch ones I rode with for 8 years never failed me. Easily available too.

The Bosch are good relays. I would still hope that they are being made outside of China, but that is increasingly rare.

My Bosch never gave me any trouble and a couple of them are still blowing my FIAMM horns.

The issue with the micro ISO relays is more a matter of ratings for Position#5 (and Position#2 in early V11). Even with "good" relays, and good contact, running any relay at or beyond its rating is a failure waiting to happen. Also, there have been considered opinions that some relays (Chinese made GEI, for example) should not be rated as high as they are. I recall member Rolf Halvorsen recently put by a stock High Current OMRON in Norway for sale. You can PM him and inquire.

Otherwise, if it's a chilly night and, you have plenty of ale, Here is some "light reading" on how and why the OMRON High Current relay became a darling to some of us . . .

The Bosch number is different,  the thread " Bosch relays in the UK " has a different part number to the links above, does it matter ? cheers

Don't know, but to make sure, you can call one of the 16.000 Bosch Automotive dealers in the UK ;)
