Toshiba Vacuum Contactors

The 2300-7200 Volts (Medium Voltage) 720-ampere contactor replaces Toshiba's CV461M-KAT(L) and utilizes the latest vacuum and solid state technology developed by Toshiba.

The HCV-6KA uses a solid state, electronic control (drive unit), to operate the contactor.

Installation, Operation & Maintenance Guide

Outline Drawing

The drive unit uses an electronic circuit, and any control voltage between 100V and 240V either AC or DC can be used without changing the coil and/or other parts. The contactor is available in either electrically maintained or latched type version. The HCV-6KA incorporates Toshiba's patented "Axial Magnetic Field Type Electrode" in the vacuum interrupters. This special design results in higher current interruption and smaller size than any other comparable design of interrupters.
