Compact contactors

GIGAVAC announces two additions to their high-voltage contactor line of Advanced Switching Solutions. The HX21 and HX200 join the HX22 as the smallest, UL508-recognized contactors for high-current switching at 1000 VDC. Designed and manufactured in the USA, the HX series features the patented EPIC Seal, which provides complete protection beyond what’s offered by traditional hermetic seals.

UL rated for switching 175 amps at 1000 VDC, with a continuous duty up to 300 amps, the HX series was developed for use in solar combiner boxes and inverters. Lightweight and compact, and only about one pound in weight, the HX series can safely be used in nearly any harsh environment, including at temperatures from –55° C to 85° C (-67° F to 185° F). HX contactors are not position sensitive. And, now with the addition of the HX21 and HX200, there are multiple mechanical footprint options, allowing for easy mechanical arrangement in any circuit.
