A contactor is a widely used electronic device that is very useful for managing the current within a circuit, turning it on and off, and for causing the system to perform certain actions.
The contactor is an electromechanical device in that its operation is related to that of an electromagnet, and its use in electrical circuits is to establish contacts, thus opening and closing a circuit.
Contactors in the catalog comply with CCC and CE safety requirements with the ability to work continuously in hostile environments without causing damage due to prolonged use.
With their stable to reliable performance, fast and secure connection mode, and small volume they greatly improve the efficiency and reliability of installation.
Application areas of contactors
Typically, contactors are used in situations where power loads need to be turned on and off frequently or quickly.
They are used in a wide range of situations where it is therefore necessary to repeatedly switch power to a circuit, for example:
- For starting electric motors;
- In high-power lighting control system;
- For telecommunications equipment;
- For the installation of photovoltaic systems;
- In the rail and shipping markets.
Thanks to some exclusive partnerships, Digimax can offer a wide range of contactors among which we find: hermetic contactors up to 1000V and 400A rated, low voltage contactors up to 100V and 2000A rated.
