Automotive relays are being provided by CIT Relay & Switch, from low current up to its highest switching capacity of 80A with voltage ranging from six to 72VDC. PC pin and quick connect mounting methods offer multiple choices for the design engineer, along with the option of mounting tabs in plastic and metal.
Automotive relays can be found in just about every car, truck, tractor, bus, golf carts and more. Used to enable a low amperage circuit to switch on and off a higher amperage circuit like headlights, relays are also used to switch multiple things at the same time using one output. A single output connected to multiple relays allow opening and/or closing simultaneously. Most automotive electrical relays are SPST or SPDT.
CIT also offers automotive relays with a shroud option and sockets for mounting solutions. Pricing ranges are dependent upon options and volume.
