The GV Series

GV Series contactors are among the most economical high performance sealed contactors on the market today.  A sealed solution is what most customers ask for when specifying a contactor to handle switching sizeable DC loads.  With voltage ratings from up to 1000Vdc, The GIGAVAC GV Series contactors are rated to switch loads in excess of 400 amps and interrupt short circuit currents up to 3500 amps (voltage dependent).  Like all GIGAVAC contactors, the GV Series can be mounted in any axis or any orientation and are sealed to withstand virtually any harsh environment.  All GIGAVAC GV Series power contactors meet RoHS and CE Conformance requirements.

  • Most GV Series contactors have built-in coil suppression.  Do not add external diodes.
  • Bidirectional contactors can break current flow in both directions.  Polarized contactors are optimized to break current flowing from A1(+) to A2(-).
  • precharge circuit should be used with applications with capacitive loads.
