The GIGAVAC Extended Performance Impervious Ceramic (EPIC®) sealing technology is a major break through in low-cost, high quality sealing of relays and contactors. Prior to this new technology, sealed relays & contactors used all ceramic envelopes which are very expensive, glass to metal seals which do not provide true seals over long periods of time, or epoxy and plastic seals that do not provide the high temperature ratings or the micro-sealing needed to use higher performance back fill gasses.
Many industrial applications today such as solar power, fuel cells, micro-turbines, hybrid and electric vehicles, and other applications have moved to HVDC systems requiring high voltage switching.
Today, when you buy any GIGAVAC GX Series, MX Series, or HX series EPIC® sealed contactor, you get superior proven technology, priced for industrial applications, equal to or less than the cost of open-air or lesser quality epoxy and plastic semi-sealed contactors. When you want a hassle free sealed contactor that works in almost any environment, even under water, contact GIGAVAC for the most ADVANCED SWITCHING SOLUTIONS.
