Electronic parts manufacturer Rincon Power is expanding its chassis-mount series of contactors by introducing the new ceramically-sealed RXC15 unit, which is capable of isolating high-voltage systems in a compact and robust package, according to the company.
The RXC15 offers 250 amps of continuous duty for applications up to 1,000 VDC. The single-pole, single-throw (SPST) relay features optional auxiliary contacts that can be used as part of a high-voltage safety circuit, for status feedback or weld detection. The hermetic seal allows the unit to be operated in virtually any environment and minimizes contact oxidation over the life of the switch, the company said. The contactor can be installed in any orientation, even upside-down, providing needed installation flexibility.
“The RXC15 is ideal for those seeking high performance in a small package,” said Brian Munari, Business Development Manager at Rincon Power. “The chassis-mount terminals make it easy for busbar connections or for routing large-diameter cables. There’s also a PCB version available for those seeking an even more compact solution. The generous over-current capability makes this a fine choice for medium-duty loads with high inrush without oversizing the contactor.”
