Rugged relay designed for harsh inductive loads

TE Connectivity (TE) has announced the release of the CII FC-335 series relay.

Designed to manage harsh inductive, motor and lamp loads, this high-performance relay offers a rugged means of power switching in a range of aerospace, defence and marine applications.

These relays have been designed to handle higher capacity loads than most comparable mid-range relays on the market, offering a 35 Amps/28Vdc resistive load rating.

The CII FC-335 series relays are built in accordance with MIL-PRF-6106 to ensure they meet rigorous military standards for use in power distribution, fuel pumps, guidance and navigation systems, weapons systems, and ground support equipment. The relays have been designed with double make contacts that share the load across two contact sets, which helps to reduce wear and tear, prolong relay life and provide more stable performance.

The all-welded construction also offers a more reliable alternative to similar solder-sealed relays.

These relays are also available in solder hook or terminal block configurations as well as 28 VDC and 115 VAC coils configurations. The main contacts are suitable for use in 360-800 Hz variable frequency applications required by newer commercial and military aircraft.
