Compact High Voltage Contactor Suits Solar Applications To 1500Vdc

Feb. 25, 2014
GIGAVAC announces a new addition to their extensive line of Advanced Switching Solutions.

A new addition to GIGAVAC’s extensive line of Advanced Switching Solutions, the HX22, is the smallest UL508 recognized contactor for high current switching at 1000Vdc.  Designed and manufactured in the USA by GIGAVAC, the HX22 exceeds IP67 and IP69 sealing requirements in addition to being RoHS compliant.

UL rated for switching 175 A at 1000 Vdc and a continuous duty up to 300 A the HX22 was developed for use in solar combiner boxes and inverters.  The HX22 is also perfect for any application requiring safe sealed arc-free switching.  Lightweight and compact (about 3.6 x 3.2 inches) the HX22 utilizes GIGAVAC's EPIC® sealed switching technology which means it can safely be used in nearly any harsh environment including under water and at temperatures from -55 °C to 85 °C.  The HX22 is not position sensitive which allows for easy mechanical arrangement in any circuit.  High efficiency coils are offered in 12, 24, or 48 Vdc versions. GIGAVAC's dual coil design means low coil power consumption and no EMI emission or crosstalk.
