The 12V protected switch shield for Arduino comes with BTS50015-1TAD (RDS(ON) 1.5mΩ), an ultra-low ohmic smart high-side power switch from the Power PROFET™ family.
Designed for relay and fuse replacement in power distribution and junction boxes, Power PROFET™ can drive resistive, capacitive and inductive loads (e.g. heating resistors, filter capacitors, motor, valves and pumps). The Power PROFET™ family targets high current applications (e.g. ECU power feeds, auxiliary power outlets, PTC heaters, rear windows heaters) and applications with high switching cycles and high energy requirements (e.g. "start-stop" systems, electric brake vacuum pumps).
Summary of Features
