GIGAVAC's HX Series EPIC® (Extended Performance Impervious Ceramic) hermetically sealed High Voltage DC Contactors are the world’s smallest UL508, approved contactors for 1000V hot switching. Since first introducing the EPIC® seal in 2006 GIGAVAC sealed contactors have become the preferred choice for any application requiring sealed switching. Utilizing the EPIC® seal means these high voltage contactors exceed sealing requirements of IP67 and IP69. Going beyond hermetic sealing the HX series can withstand the rigors of virtually any harsh environment whether underwater or in the desert sun. HX series High Voltage Hermetically Sealed Contactors are particularly suited for inverter systems, battery packs and combiner boxes in solar or wind power systems. Additionally, the HX series is ideal for EV’s with high voltage battery systems, such as high-performance electric vehicles, electric buses and electric trucks. The HX Series now includes packaging options with the HX21, HX22, and HX200.
- Contactors feature internal transorb for coil suppression. No external diodes should be added across the coil.
- Breaking current in the reverse direction will reduce cycle life ratings, please consult factory for specific application assistance. Switches should be installed so that current flows from A2(+) to A1(-).
- Notes for pre-charge circuits and electrical systems with capacitors.
