Compact 50A relay switches automotive loads
Fujitsu Components America, Inc. has expanded its automotive relay offering with a new 12VDC PCB relay featuring a switching capacity of 50A at 14VDC. The FBR53-HC offers a higher contact rating than its 40A FBR53-HW counterpart, yet occupies the same 12.1 x 15.5 x 13.7mm footprint and weighs the same 6g.
With a maximum carrying current of 62.5A, 14VDC (30minutes at 125°C) and an operating temperature of -40 to +125°C, the FBR53-HC is suited for medium-to-heavy loads, such as electric power steering, radiator fans, fuel pumps, seat heaters, head lamps and motor braking circuits.
The FBR53-HC is a mini ISO relay replacement that employs a 1 Form U dual contact arrangement normally open for high contact reliability. It features a typical electrical life of 100,000 operations and power consumption of approximately 600 mW.
Available immediately, the RoHS-compliant relay is offered in a plastic sealed package and is also in a through-hole reflow version.
