How long does your contactor last?

Posted in Carlo Gavazzi Switch Products by Alison on May 19th 2021

The standard life of an SSR is many times that of a mechanical contactor! 

   

Carlo Gavazzi’s RG series of single-phase solid-state relays for power control applications, start at only 17.5mm wide providing a compact and space saving solution to optimise panel space.  Whilst SSR’s may seem on the surface to be a costly option against standard mechanical contactors, failures due to contact wear and tear is entirely eliminated as there are no moving parts extending a products life time and reliability, this also helps to avoid costly maintenance and down-time.
 
All our SSRs AC or DC are designed for industrial use:

  • 1-phase AC solid state relay
  • No contact arcing, low EMI, high surge capability
  • High resistance to shock and vibration
  • High resistance to aggressive chemicals and dust
  • No electro mechanical noise
  • Logic compatibility
  • Fast switching
  • Low coupling capacitance
  • Fast accurate switching control
  • CE-cULus-VDE-EAC, and conforms to railway standard
