CH500, CH800, CH801 – Contactors up to 3,000 V for rail

Single-pole NO contactors for AC and DC (unidirectional). Rated insulation voltage 3,000 V; conventional thermal current 80 A.

CH500
Contactor up to 3 kV with attached electric arc chamber
CH801
Contactor up to 3 kV with attached electric arc chamber and S800 snap-action switches as auxiliary contact.

The CH500, CH800 and CH801 series have been designed for a nominal switching capacity of 70 kW. They are used for the activation of power supply systems and as a main and auxiliary contact of heating registers in heating and air-conditioning systems. The guiding bars on the fixed contacts force the electric arc into the arcing chamber during shutdown.

Features

Unidirectional switching of up to 3,000 V DC

The DC design boasts blowout magnets and guiding bars which drive the electric arc to the attached arcing chambers.

Switchgear in rail carriages
  • Activation contactor of power supply systems
  • Main and auxiliary contactor of heat registers in heating and air-conditioning systems
Auxiliary contacts: Snap-action switch with positive opening operation

The designs of the CH500, CH800 and CH801 series boast one or two S800-series snap-action switches. These report the state of the main contacts reliably to the higher-level control system.

Ambient temperatures: –50°C to +70°C

Due to their approval for rail applications, the contactors can also be used in extreme temperatures.
