DESCRIPTION
The Series RF255 is an industry-standard, half-size,
latching crystal can relay. These relays are highly
suitable for high RF power applications (RF Power
Handling) and other RF circuits, the RF255/RF257
features:
• High repeatability
• Broad Bandwidth
• Metal enclosure for EMR shielding
• Highly resistant to ESD
Teledyne Relays’ Series RF255 offers:
• All welded construction
• Wire leads, gold plated or solder-coated
• Matched seal for superior hermeticity
• Gold-plated contact assembly
• Modernized assembly process
• Advanced cleaning techniques
The RF257 is a variation of the RF255 featuring a different schematic.

GENERAL NOTES
1. Vibration (sinusoidal): MIL-STD-202, method 204, test condition D (except frequency shall be 10 to 2,500 Hz). Contact chatter
shall not exceed 10μs maximum for closed contacts, and 1μs maximum closure for open contacts. Vibration (random):
MIL-STD-202, method 214, test condition IG. Contact chatter shall not exceed 10μs maximum for closed contacts, and 1μs
maximum closure for open contacts (applicable to qualification and group C testing only).
2. Shock (half-sine pulse): MIL-STD-202, method 213, test condition C (100 g’s). Contact chatter shall not exceed 10μs maximum
for closed contacts, and 1μs maximum closure for open contacts.
3. Dimensions are in inches. Metric equivalents in parentheses for reference only.
4. Unless otherwise specified, tolerance is ±.010 (0.25mm).
5. Indicated terminal is marked with a contrasting bead.
6. Unless otherwise specified, relays will be supplied with either gold-plated or solder coated leads. The slash and characters
appearing after the slash are not marked on the relay.
7. When latching relays are installed in equipment, the latch and reset coils should not be pulsed simultaneously.
8. Each relay possesses high-level and low level capabilities. However, relays previously tested or used above 10mA resistive at
6Vdc maximum or peak ac open circuits not recommended for subsequent use in low-level applications.
9. Relays may be subjected to 260°C (1 minute) peak solder reflow temperature.
