Product Description

New GE RR7 maintained relay switch comes equipped with 3 low voltage leads and is the best replacement option for discontinued GE relays for standard unlighted switches. These relays are also a compatible replacement for standard Sierra Electric and Bryant brand solenoid relays and have a split low voltage (24V) coil to move the line voltage contact between latched ON and OFF positions.

Features

  • rated 20 amp, 277 volt
  • SPST (single pole single throw) mechanical relay
  • 1.5" W x 1.75" D x 2.5" H
  • 3 low voltage leads - one red, one black, one blue
  • special coil design to resist burnout
  • can operate in any position
  • replaces discontinued GE RR2, RR3 and RR5 and standard Bryant low volt solenoid relays. (Use a GE RR9 relay if replacing a GE RR4, RR6 or RR8.)
  • UL Listed, CSA certified
  • made by General Electric in the USA

Wiring Tip: To replace an older relay, connect the old red wire to the new red wire, the old black wire to the new black wire and the old white (or other color) wire to the new blue wire. Operation: Each relay employs a split low-voltage (24V) coil to move the line voltage contact armature to the ON (OFF) latched position. Do not use DC with pilot or locator switches. GE low-voltage relays may be used to full-rated capacity for tungsten filament, ballast, resistive or motor loads. ( GRR7, GERR7, RR-7 ) Installation Notes: Mounts in standard 1/2" KO, .865" - .875" diameter 14 or 16 gauge material. 60C maximum ambient temperature. Operates in any position. Shop for coordinating low volt switches and wall covers at General Electric Lighting Devices & Switchplates.


Q&A Information

I have an old GE RR2 remote control relay switch in my home. It is not pilot lighted. What is the updated replacement part for this? The GE RR7 low voltage relay is a direct replacement for older GE brand RR2, RR3 and RR5 mechanical latching relays. Like the original models, the RR7 is a standard solenoid relay designed for use with GE RS series unlighted switches. For lighted switches with pilot lights, the GE RR9 relay is required and is a current replacement for vintage RR4, RR6 and RR8 discontinued relay models. Why are low voltage replacement switches and switch plates so hard to find?
Vintage low voltage lighting systems were originally installed in mid-century U.S. homes during 1940 to 1980. Because of their unique remote control functionality, allowing homeowners to control all of their house lights from one master location, they were considered a high-end luxury feature for the time. Most of these once-popular electrical systems have now become obsolete, limiting the availability of low voltage replacement parts. Kyle Switch Plates currently carries updated name brand equipment from original low voltage pioneers such as General Electric, Touch-Plate and Remcon, and has researched the best replacement options for Bryant and Sierra wiring systems. Visit GE Low Voltage Replacement Parts for our full selection of rare low voltage switches, hard to find wall plates, remote control relays and mounting brackets that are regularly stocked and ready to ship at Kyle Switch Plates.
