t-Fx45 and t-Fx60 Precision Solid-state Flashers - All Versions In Stock; Ships in 24 hrs.
Two-terminal Precision Flasher with Constant Flash Rate and 50% Duty-Cycle
The Genesis t-Fx45 and t-Fx60 Solid-state Flashers are designed to alternately interrupt and energize the coil of plug-in relays used to flash the signals for railroad/roadway grade crossings (t-Fx45) or for flashing indications of railroad wayside signals (t-Fx60). The t-Fx45 flashes at 45 flashes per minute whereas the t-Fx60 flashes at 60 flashes per minute. Even when operating at very low voltages, the t-Fx Solid-State Flasher continues to operate at its designed flash rate and duty cycle.
Also available are "strobed" versions of the t-Fx flashers: the t-Fx45s and t-Fx60s. Both strobed flashers provide a series of four very short and quick pulses at 45 or 60 times per minute and are best suited for driving LED lamp indicators.
The t-Fx45 and t-Fx60 offer several advantages over other available flasher-packs. The most obvious advantage is the high-precision of the flash-rate and duty-cycle. Another is its ability to reliably drive almost any relay without erratic behavior, out-of-tolerance flash rates or duty-cycles.
The t-Fx flasher is protected against output short-circuits and is also equipped with internal secondary surge suppression. Thus, it is extremely reliable.
12VDC to 24VDC Solid-state Flasher - No Moving Parts
Available in 45 FPM or 60 FPM High-Precision Flash Rates
Precision 50% Duty Cycle at all voltages
Compatible with Relay Coils from 15Ω to 1000Ω
Operating Voltage Range from 7VDC to 24VDC
Mounting and Wiring Kit for Installation on Back of Plug-In Relay Base
Internal Secondary Surge Suppression & Short-Circuit Protected
Drives wide range of relay coil resistances
Easy mounting and hookup using furnished mounting bracket and hardware
Operates reliably even when battery voltage is very low

The t-Fx45 and t-Fx60 flashers can also be used to drive loads other than relay coils, such as an incandescent or LED lamp or indicator. This is permissible as long as the maximum operating voltage and
current are not exceeded.
