Automotive relays need to consider and meet special working environments, such as high heat, high vibration, high noise, etc. Zettler's relays can be used in automotive brake system, interior lighting, and vehicle window control.
Switching high currents: Relays can handle high currents, making them suitable for applications like starting motors, controlling headlights, and powering other high-power devices in a vehicle.
Protection of the control circuit: Relays provide isolation between the control circuit and the load, which protects the control circuit from damage caused by high voltage and current spikes.
Reliable operation: Relays have no moving parts, which means they are less prone to wear and tear and can operate reliably for long periods of time.
Flexibility: Relays are available in a wide range of configurations, which makes it possible to customize them to suit specific automotive applications.
Ease of replacement: If a relay fails, it is relatively easy to replace, and replacement parts are widely available.
Cost-effectiveness: Relays are a cost-effective solution for controlling high-power electrical devices in vehicles compared to alternatives like solid-state switches.
Overall, the advantages of using relays in automotive applications include their ability to handle high currents, provide protection to the control circuit, reliable operation, flexibility, ease of replacement, and cost-effectiveness.
