The $PbSc_{1/2}Nb_{1/2}O_3$ ceramics at a relatively low temperature of $1300^{\circ}C$ was successful synthesized. Solid state reaction of two-step process is not necessary. The dielectric constant, dielectric loss and admittance of ceramic samples were determined. The pyroelectric characteristics are in good agreement with the dielectric properties. Ferroelectric properties of well-formed the $PbSc_{1/2}Nb_{1/2}O_3$ ceramics are in agreement with broad distribution of relaxation phenomenon. Relatively strong frequency dependent of dielectric constant is observed at about $110^{\circ}C$. The distinct thermal hysteresis was observed in the measurement of the dielectric constant and dielectric loss. The critical exponents of during cooling and heating measurements in the $PbSc_{1/2}Nb_{1/2}O_3$ ceramics were 1.14 and 1.59 at 1 kHz, respectively.
