GIGAVAC presents the GX Series EPIC® (Extended Performance Impervious Ceramic) sealed DC Contactors and AC contactors. GX Contactors can switch DC loads at both low and high voltage from 12 to 800VDC. These small RoHS compliant hermetically sealed contactors can be mounted in any position, can be used in nearly any harsh environment including under water and at temperatures from –55°C to 85°C. They are the preferred contactor (they are also sometimes called a relay or solenoid) for heavy trucks and equipment, busses, emergency vehicles, electric vehicles, hybrid vehicles, boats, light rail, mining, oil and factory automation, power management systems for battery charging, fuel cells, battery backup, solar, wind and wave power systems where long life and high reliability are needed. Most are cruus recognized.
For switching AC loads contact GIGAVAC.
For relays rated from 1.5KV up to 70KV, visit the GIGAVAC line of HV relays.
- 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.
