TE Connectivity high-power relayTE Connectivity has expanded its existing MS27418 relay series with the CII FCC-325 relay, which features 2A SPDT (single pole double throw) auxiliary contacts that can be used to perform additional functions related to the control of the relay allowing for circuit trip feedback status, illuminating an indicator light, and other similar control functions.

The new relay has been designed to the performance standards of MIL-PRF-6016, making it ideal for harsh inductive, motor and lamp load applications in military, aerospace and marine robotics markets.

The FCC-325 relay is a non-latching, hermetically sealed unit intended for 25 Amp resistive loads. It can be easily integrated with existing computing systems such as launch systems, navigation systems and weapons systems, as well as naval equipment.

Randy Biddix, product manager for TE’s Aerospace, Defense and Marine division, commented: “When we designed this relay, we carefully considered the types of environments it has to operate in – environments ranging from 400 Hz aerospace power to 50/60 Hz ground power systems. It was critically important we built the CII FCC-325 to meet and exceed both the challenges and the expectations, while providing the added benefits of auxiliary contacts.”
