The CIT A6 switching current is up to 30A with contact arrangement choices of 1A or 1C. Coil voltage options are 12VDC and 24VDC with coil power choices of 0.9W and 1.3W. With PC pin mounting, the A6 Series is 22.5 x 15.0 x 25.2mm with an overall weight of 21g.

It also boasts a tested electrical life of 100K cycles with mechanical life of 10M cycles. Resistance values include its 100 m/s2 for 11 minutes shock resistance, 1.27mm double amplitude 10Hz to 40Hz vibration resistance, 50 milliohms contact resistance and 100M milliohms at 500VDC insulation resistance. With contacts constructed of a bimetal material, silver-tin oxide (AgSnO2), it maintains a dielectric strength of 500VRMS – both coil-to-contact and contact-to-contact.

It is available as a sealed unit or with a dust cover and with standard coil suppression, Diode (1N4005) Cathode on “86” terminal or resistor suppression device. They enable a small current flow circuit to control and operate a higher current circuit in vehicular applications. Beyond this, they are suitable for use in buses, RVs and tractors to lawnmowers, wheelchair lifts and golf carts.
