California electronics manufacturer GIGAVAC has announced the latest addition to its line of high-power switching devices. The HX460 is a hermetically sealed HVDC contactor designed to deliver massive power switching capabilities in a compact package – approximately 6×6 inches.
The HX460 power connection busbars allow continuous application circuit currents of 600 amps and beyond. The SPDT auxiliary contacts are mechanically linked to provide a reliable indication of the main contacts in the closed position. The sealed internal chambers for both the contacts and coil are designed to assure clean switching in any environment, making the HX460 suitable for operation in hazardous locations.
The HX460 is suitable for solar applications including inverters, as well as rail and traction applications that require a high voltage dielectric rating.
Complete specifications are available on the company’s web site.
According to Markus Beck, GIGAVAC’s VP of Sales, “Our HX460 is the perfect companion to our other sealed switching products. It gives our customers a reliable alternative for their higher power switching requirements versus conventional open air and simply sealed products.”
