Fujitsu Components Asia Pte Ltd

Singapore, June 07, 2004

Fujitsu Components Asia, Limited today released a slim, 20A power relay that is targeted primarily to OEMs developing commercial and industrial products.

The FTR-K3 is a 1Make (1 Form A) relay that has a nominal operating power of 780mW, which is the lowest power consumption in this class. Rated for a maximum load of 20A at 250VAC, it is suited for switching compressor and inverter loads in air conditioners, refrigerators and other major appliances, as well as for use in office equipment.

TheFTR-K3 has an operating temperature range of -40 to +60 degrees C. Dimensions of the slim-type relay are 30.1mm (L) x 15.7mm (W) x 23.3mm (H).

The FTR-K3 relay features an 8mm clearance distance and a minimum 9.5mm creepage distance between coil and contacts for high-insulation resistance. It also has a surge withstand voltage of 8,500V (min.), 1.2x50uSec, features a 1,000V dielectric strength between contacts, and 5000V dielectric strength between coil to contact.

The relay’s expected mechanical life is rated at 2 million operations. It has an electrical life of 100.000 operations at rated load (20A, 250VAC, Cos Phi 1).

The FTR-K3 meets UL, CSA, VDE (pending now) and CQC agency approvals. It uses UL94 flame class V-0 and UL CTI level class 2 plastics, and is constructed of lead-free materials and cadmium-free contacts to meet international environmental requirements.

The FTR-K3 series is available in the second half 2004 with #250 TAB and PCB terminals in 5, 6, 9, 12, 18, and 24Vdc coil voltages. Samples are available immediately. A FTR-K3 with a 12Vdc coil is priced at $1.10 each in 100,000 pieces. Delivery is 12 weeks.
