The relays we use are specially made for us; they have our part number on
them. You have to buy them in qty of 500+ at a time. But I do sell them
They are not $45 but $16.00 each. They are USA made and contain an RF
acceptable contact alloy which includes silver Oxide, and a gold flash.

I don't know the manufacturer. But, if your goal is to obtain some, you can
buy those relays from Array Solutions:
Scroll to the bottom. You'll see he sells the relays individually for $45
each... same relays used in the RatPak, SixPak, etc.
If you really just want to know who makes them, perhaps if you call or email
Jay he will tell you.
