Lightweight contactors designed for military applications


TE Connectivity has released its newly developed CII FCC-360 contactors. The 60A contactors are smaller, lighter and offer higher resistive contact ratings than similar products on the market.

TE’s compact CII FCC-360 contactors are engineered to save valuable space and weight in power distribution systems, COTS (Commercial Off the Shelf) equipment and 50 and 60Hz military ground and shipboard systems, among other applications.

The new contactors also offer higher resistive ratings than other similar products on the market and are rated at 60A for both 28VDC and 115VAC 60Hz/400Hz switching.

Designed to the performance standards of MIL-PRF-6106, the durable CII FCC-360 contactors employ a double make contact design that helps reduce wear over time and economised coils that promote faster switching.

“As a new platform application, the CII FCC-360 contactors address the growing demand within the aerospace market for smaller, lighter contactors with more switching power. And they provide an excellent solution for 60Hz power switching, which is increasingly important to aerospace engineers,” said Randy Biddix, Product Manager for TE’s Aerospace, Defence and Marine division.
