Press Release Summary:
Designed for large all-electric or hybrid-powered vehicles, busses, emergency vehicles, mining equipment, and rail, EPICÂ® GX16 is rated from 20-600 A for continuous duty and can switch both DC and AC voltages up to 750 V. Due to its dual coil design, unit requires only 8 W of coil power for continuous operation. Able to mount in any position, RoHS compliant contactor can be used in harsh environments, under water, and at temperatures from -55 to 85Â°C (up to 125Â°C with special coils).
Original Press Release:
New GIGAVAC GX16 - 600 Amp Sealed Contactor Is 3 Inches Tall & Safely Switches 12-750 Volts DC & AC
Santa Barbara, California - GIGAVAC announced today the GX16 a new, low cost 600 Amp Single Pole Single Throw (SPST) normally open sealed contactor just 3.0 inches (76 mm) tall and weighing 1.9 pounds (0 .9 Kg). The GX16 further expands GIGAVAC's line of EPIC® sealed contactors - rated from 20 Amp to 600 Amp continuous duty - that can switch both DC and AC voltages up to 750 Volts and is RoHS compliant.
According to Markus Beck, GIGAVAC VP of Power Products, "Our new 600 Amp GX16 contactor is just 3 inches (76 mm) tall, 3.2 inches (82 mm) deep, and 5.4 inches (137 mm) wide with the easy-connect chassis level power connections that eliminates the need to bend the large connecting power cables or develop special bus bars. Additional higher current contactors will be released this year - including latching relays, integrated voltage and current sense ability, and time delay functionality."
The GX16 was developed for large all-electric or hybrid-powered vehicles, busses, emergency vehicles, mining equipment, rail, as well as large solar and power back-up systems. The GX16 is lightweight, requires low coil hold power, can be mounted in any position, and can be used in nearly any harsh environment including under water and at temperatures from -55°C to 85°C (up to 125°C with special coils). The dual coil design means one coil is automatically removed from the coil circuit once energized and only eight watts of coil power is required for continuous operation. An optional Single Pole Single Throw, Normally Open (SPST-NO) auxiliary contact driven off the main armature gives true indication of the main contact position.
The GX16 is in stock for immediate delivery. One piece pricing with the new GX16 is $318. For 100 pieces, pricing is $202 each. GIGAVAC accepts all major credit cards and generally ships the same day the order is received.
