2SC5200 datasheet

In this section, we include information’s about electrical characteristics shown by the 2sc5200 transistor, so we can use these values to make circuits, and also we can get a proper idea about the 2sc5220 transistor.

2sc5200 voltage

The collector-base voltage is 230v and Collector – emitter voltage is 230v, both these values will indicate the high voltage of the 2sc5200 transistor, then also the emitter-base voltage is the triggering voltage it is only 5v.

  • Collector – Base Voltage (VCB) = 230V
  • Collector-Emitter voltage (VCE) = 230V
  • Emitter – Base voltage (VEB) = 5V


2sc5200 transistor ampere

The collector current is 15A, it is the current value that indicates the maximum current capacity of the transistor, then the Base current is 1.5A, they are the maximum base current of the transistor.

The DC current gain is mainly utilized at the amplifier application, so the gain values are in two collector current conditions.

  • Collector current (IC) = 15A
  • Base current (IB)= 1.5A
  • DC current gain = VCE = 5V, IC = 1A

                           = 55 to 160 HFe

                           = VCE = 5V, IC = 7A

                           = 35 to 60 HFe

The power dissipation of the 2sc5200 transistor is 150w, and the maximum temperature capacity of the transistor is around -55 to 150˚C.
