    I am trying to select a relay for a delayed HT switch (which will also
    discharge the HT when off). Most relays I can find have contacts rated
    at 250VAC which translates into a peak of about 350V. However, data is
    scarce on what dc voltage these relays can switch. So far I have found
    only one that gives a dc current versus voltage curve and that stops at
    210V dc (and 200mA) and I really want to be able to switch up to 350V at
    up to 200mA. The rest just give a dc voltage at max current value.

    So, I am guessing that this problem has been faced before and there are
    relays that are known to work fine in this application. Any recommendations?

    By the way I prefer a 5V coil.

    I can understand that with high currents which is why many of the 250VAC
    10 or 20 amp relays I have seen are only rated at about 30Vdc for the
    same amps but here I am only switching a small fraction of an amp.
    I would rather not.

    ** Course you can, if you de-rate the breaking current figure sufficiently.

    The OP has, like YOU, made a blunder in his interpretation of the specs.
