    Hi
    I'm having trouble finding out what kind of relay I need.
    I have a relay on the attached picture that is stuck but I can't find its model to order a replacement.

    Thanks

    That is a Hewlett Packard part number, became Agilent, now known as Keysight.
    It was made for HP and has no other cross reference number. I did a quick check for availability.
    There are lots of them out there, anywhere from $1 each to $163 each.
    Some guy has 40 of them on ebay right now for $44 total.
    Take your pick who you want to buy them from.

    Thanks
    But which number did you use to search? And is the other number on it relevant?
    Can you give me a link to one ebay item?

    The last HP part number system was the 8-digit number. Your relay is Hewlett Packard 6090-2093.
    qService on eBay is listing 40 of your relays for $44.50 with $7 shipping.

    Look. The Chinese are buying U.S. obsolete parts and are cornering the market on them.
    Aviation and Military surplus companies in the U.S. charge premium prices for their stashes of obsolete parts.
    YOU can waste your time searching for one relay if you want to, but if I were you, I'd buy the 40 relays on eBay and consider myself lucky.
    You see how many relays are on your board. Buy the lot, save a few for the next ones that fail on your board, and resell the remainder you
    don't want to get your money back.
    If you find one relay by itself, it's gonna cost you $40 by itself.
    Good luck.
