With its REDline series, Würth Elektronik ICS has developed a line of standard modules for the central electrical units that provides vehicle manufacturers with a highly cost-efficient solution primarily for the production of small series as no development costs are incurred here. The RED-line modules can be combined with one another as required. This means that an individual system can be compiled with which the consumer loads in the vehicles can be switched and fused. With the REDline modules, wiring harnesses and thus potential sources of faults can be substantially reduced.
The youngest member of this series of modules, the 0F-12μR module, was developed at the request of a customer. "In our development, we attach great importance to customer focus. Only those who listen closely to the customer can develop products that meet the customer's requirements. The new 0F-12μR module is a prime example of how specific customer requirements can be implemented in new products and transferred to our range of standard products," explains CEO Albrecht Faber.
The module offers connection possibilities for 12 micro relays that can be switched with up to 15 A. It has JPT/MCP-compatible connectors and can be operated with 12 V or 24 V. Solder bridges enable the ground signals of the relay coils to be joined. The special feature of this module is that all relay connections can be activated individually. Vehicle manufacturers thus have absolute flexibility.
