Panasonic surface mount power relay switches 40A
The availability of the CP relay as a power type, combined with a PiP (pin-in-paste) design suited for reflow soldering, expands the automotive product portfolio of Panasonic Electric Works Europe.
The CP power type relay series can be used to switch mid- to high-power loads of 30 to 40A in a new PiP constellation or using the conventional mounting processes THT or SMD in IP67 (RTIII).
The ordering information for the power type CP relay contains an “H” for “high power”, e.g. CP1a H12J.
An optimised armature-coil system is designed to reduce the driving power consumption to 450mW (standard relay in comparison: 650mW).
Due to the increased switching capacity, the normally open contact has a double-pin design. In any case, we recommend the CP power type relay when designing new circuit boards.
