I'm under the impression that when a contactor is to be operated in AC-4 conditions more than ten times per minute, one should select a contactor that is one size larger than if it were not operated this frequently. I just wanted to clarify whether going the next size up was referring to the next highest current rating or the next highest frame size for an IEC contactor. Any insight is appreciated, thanks.
