I would go to great lengths to avoid using a relay in ANY critical application. Relays are 'electro-mechanical' devices...the 'electro' part does not make them in any way immune to the capricious nature that has always plagued a relay. Sooner or later (that's the fun part) they, all of them, regardless of application, fail. Period.
