GIGAVAC announces the latest addition to their line of patented switching devices, the HX460. This new hermitically sealed, HVDC contactor brings massive power switching capabilities in a compact package. Designed and manufactured in the USA, the GIGAVAC HX460 has a package size of approximately 6x6 inches (154x154 mm), and power connection busbars which allow continuous application circuit currents of 600A and beyond. The SPDT, single pole double throw, auxiliary contacts are mechanically linked to provide a reliable indication of the main contacts in the closed position. The sealed internal chambers for both the contacts and coil assures clean switching in any environment making the HX460 suitable for operation in hazardous classified locations. Safe make and break power switching can be achieved for high power applications at powers up to 600kW. With bi‚Äźdirectional switching capability and continuous current carry to 600A, this GIGAVAC sealed contactor is a solution for many solar applications including inverters, and DC combiner boxes along with a variety of industrial drive systems including rail and traction applications requiring a high voltage dielectric rating.
