TE Connectivity, Harrisburg, Pa., has released its newly developed CII FCC-360 contactors. The 60-A contactors are smaller, lighter and offer higher resistive contact ratings than similar products on the market.
TE’s compact CII FCC-360 contactors are engineered to save valuable space and weight in power distribution systems, COTS (Commercial Off the Shelf) equipment and 50- and 60-Hz military ground and shipboard systems, among other applications. The new contactors also offer higher resistive ratings than other similar products on the market and are rated at 60 A for both 28 Vdc and 115 Vac 60Hz/400Hz switching.
Designed to the performance standards of MIL-PRF-6106, the durable CII FCC-360 contactors employ a double make contact design that helps reduce wear over time and economized coils that promote faster switching.
“As a new platform application, the CII FCC-360 contactors address the growing demand within the aerospace market for smaller, lighter contactors with more switching power. And they provide an excellent solution for 60-Hz power switching, which is increasingly important to aerospace engineers,” said Randy Biddix, product manager for TE’s Aerospace, Defense and Marine division.
