With the increased deployment of electric vehicles comes an increased demand for DC fast charging. What originally started with 400 V moved to 800 V and is now targeting 1200 V.

High voltages pose very specific challenges to the safety devices capable of reliably insulating and galvanically separating the DC power sources within a charging station from the vehicle or the on-board battery from the remaining vehicle network. Self-sustained arcing causing contacts to melt together is only one of many difficulties DC contactors must overcome.

Join this session to learn about the open-air advantages and applications of bidirectional DC contactors.
