Uptime, reliability and vehicle safety requirements are constantly increasing in transit and school buses. At the same time, electriﬁcation of drive train systems requirements are continuing to evolve. Electric mobility, new fuel efﬁciency standards and bus connectivity & digitization continue to drive innovation.
E-T-A's resettable automotive circuit breakers replace ATO® and MINI® blade-type fuses, allowing technicians to reduce the amount of time for trouble-shooting and avoid unnecessary vehicle downtimes.
E-T-A is the industry leader in power management design for both School and Transit bus. E-T-A innovations include standard Din-Rail, socket mount and smart PC based designs. We are the experts in power management and protection for the bus industry. Virtually all of the OEM's work with E-T-A for components and custom power management systems.
Limited installation space, reliability expectations and minimum energy requirements determine our customers’ designs. Our electro-mechanical power relays were designed specifically with this in mind and are tested in accordance with ISO 16750.
E-T-A power relays are ideal for switching high current loads up to 300 amps as well as battery management in transit & school buses. The power relays are made with high-end and corrosion-proof materials, making them extremely robust and able to withstand environmental factors like shock, vibration, water and dust. The compact design and low weight enables flexible installation in demanding applications.
And, as a designer you are facing continuous pressures to design more competitive transit & school buses all while reducing cost. Installing E-T-A’s power relays into your 12/24 VDC electrical system can help you:
- Extend vehicle lifespan - > 250,000 cycles and corrosion proof materials helps increase the lifespan and reliability your equipment.
- Enhance design flexibility - Standard and alternative mounting possibilities & IP6K9K/IP67 rating allow you to install the relay where it works best in your design - even in the harshest environments.
- Save space & reduce vehicle weight - the MPR20 is more compact and weighs 50% less the standard relays on the market today.
