Fujitsu introduces compact PCB relay for medium-to-heavy automotive loads

Fujitsu has expanded its automotive relay offering with a new 12 VDC PCB relay featuring a switching capacity of 50 A at 14 VDC. The FBR53-HC offers a higher contact rating than its 40-amp FBR53-HW counterpart, yet occupies the same 12.1 x 15.5 x 13.7 mm footprint, and weighs the same 6 grams.

With a maximum current of 62.5 A and an operating temperature of -40 to +125° C, Fujitsu says the FBR53-HC is suited for medium-to-heavy loads, such as electric power steering, radiator fans, fuel pumps, seat heaters, headlamps 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 also in a through-hole reflow version.
