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.
Stand-up mounting with integrated safety cover – No need for specially routed power cables, special bus bars, or special lugs.
Rugged EPIC® seal rated to 175°C – Reduced risk of fire or meltdown in over current conditions. The same technology used for advanced aerospace programs.
Hermetically sealed – UL recognized: UL1604 for Class I & II, Div 2 and Class III for use in hazardous locations, IP67 for temporary water immersion for 30 min, IP69K for pressure washing, SAE J1171 - external ignition protection, and ISO8846 for protection against ignition around flammable gasses.
High Efficiency Dual DC Coils – Very low 12 or 24 VDC continuous coil power with no EMI emissions or crosstalk on your system control power. Ideal for battery powered systems or where low power is needed.
Built-in coil suppression for all DC coils – Saves you engineering time and parts cost to add external coil suppression.
Stainless steel nuts and mounting inserts, for years of corrosion free service.
For Mil-Spec DC contactors for ground applications, you might consider the GIGAVAC line of MX EPIC® hermetically sealed DC contactors.
