Toshiba Vacuum Contactors

The 400 Amp 2300-7200 Volts (Medium Voltage) HCV-5HA, the first vacuum contactor produced in Houston, Texas, was also the first Toshiba vacuum contactor to incorporate an electronic drive unit to power the operating coils. This solid state design eliminated the economizing resistors and improved the reliability of the coil circuit.

ABB Contactors

The Operation of Inductive circuits causes overvoltages, in particular on opening the contactor coil. The electromagnetic energy stored in the coil during contactor closing is restored on opening in the form of surges, the slope and amplitude of which may rise to several kilovolts. A number of drawbacks are observed ranging from interference on the electronic devices to the breakdown of insulators and even the destruction of certain

Motortronics Contactor

Non-Latching (C) uses constant-on electromagnetic coils to close, and hold closed the vacuum bottle contacts. When the power to the electromagnetic coil is removed, the vacuum chamber contacts spring open (termed as; electrically held contacts or non-latching contacts).
