American Electronic Components Incorporated (AEC – introduces the NEW compact Durakool DG17M pre-charge relay solution for high voltage advanced automotive hybrid and electric vehicles.

This highly efficient, cost effective device for electric mobility vehicles measures just 26.5 x 21.5 x 21.5mm and the design is optimized to enable switching loads of up to 10A at 450VDC

Bruce Finke, VP Sales & Marketing, commented “It’s impressive that even under fault conditions the dependable DG17M disconnects the pre-charge circuit from the traction battery”.

These robust relays are primarily used in pre-charging the DC high voltage system in hybrid, fuel cell and full battery electric vehicles, they are a light weight safe and reliable solution with two arc extinguishing magnets’.

“For high voltage applications with levels up to 450VDC and for pre-charge currents and limiting break currents up to 10A, the miniature package and PCB mount design make the DG17M an obvious choice”, concluded Finke.
