How to use 2SC5200 transistor?

To get the best performance with the 2SC5200 NPN power transistor, you should not drive the load more than 15A, and the collector-emitter voltage of the transistor must in under 230V.

Use a suitable base resistor (RB), which provides the required current at the base of the 2SC5200. The value for this resistor can be calculated using the formula: RB = VEB / IB. Where the 2SC5200 transistor value of VEB should be 5V, and the Base current IB depends on the Collector current IC.

The value of IB should not exceed 1.5A. Also, you should not operate this transistor below -55 °C and above +150 °C.
