White Paper: Industrial Control Basics: Contactors
A contactor is an electrical device used for switching an electrical circuit on or off. Considered to be a special type of relay, contactors are used in applications with higher current carrying capacity, while relays are used for lower current applications. Known for their capability to handle currents of over 5000 amperes and high power over 100 kW, contactors are most commonly used for high-current loads.
Contactors may seem straight forward in their makeup and application, but they are a fundamental part of industrial control systems and their uses must be understood by electrical and industrial engineers. That’s where this whitepaper comes in to help.
In this white paper you will learn:
What components make up a contactor.
How contactors operate.
The many applications of contactors and more.
