iBoot DC Relay Specs

I am using an iBoot DC to control the DC Power to an Advantech PC UNO-2173AF.
I previously used a relay set from ControlAnything and had an issue with relay bounce. The switched rail would take > 20 ms to settle, and the PCs would intermittently fail to start.
I designed a circuit to clean this up using a delay and a semiconductor switch.
I have measured the settling time on one iBoot DC and it came in around 7 ms.

My question is am I going to be able to drop the semiconductor cleanup circuit?
OR really, do you have any specs on the relay used in the iBoot DC??

Andrew,

I can not tell if you can remove the cleanup circuit. My guess is probably.
This link is the data sheet for the relay inside the unit.
How long have you had the iBoot-DC? What is the Serial number?

DP_Sam,

Thanx for the response. I bought the iBoot DC in Australia - ordered it on 2nd April.
It is in the field at the moment, so I don't have the serial number, but I can get it.
I have three more on order, and intend to just test them on a couple of the PCs.

I note the spec says 20 ms (MAX) operate, which is a bit more than I measured ...
