Advantages and Applications of Bi-Directional Open-Chamber DC Contactors

Technical paper about important criteria for selecting the right DC contactor across different applications.

Advantages and Applications of Bi-Directional Open-Chamber DC Contactors

DC technology is increasingly important for electric vehicles (EV), fast-charging stations and energy storage systems to stabilize the grid.  Challenges continue to emerge for switching technology, especially as power level needs to grow. Only electromechanical DC contactors have the capability to fully, galvanically separate the battery from the high-voltage network.

In this technical paper you will learn more about:
  • Overcoming challenges to extinguish the arc in DC contactors
  • Examples of different applications and considerations for choosing the right DC contactor
  • Influence of ambient conditions on DC contactor performance
