Willow Technologies Limited introduces the NEW compact 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 optimised to enable switching loads of up to 10A at 450VDC.

John Merrill, Relays Product Manager at Willow 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 Merrill.
