Availability: Order Now
Gigavac are a US company who produce a range of high quality hermetically sealed contactors, particularly suitable for higher voltage systems and use in dirty environments (such as EV engine bays). The contactors also include coil economizers, which reduces the hold current of the coil once it has closed.
The GX16 is Gigavac's largest DC contactor with a continuous current rating of 600A, it is a competitor to the (much pricier) Kilovac EV500 "Bubba" contactors, and is a good choice for vehicles running >1000A rated controllers (typically racing applications).
Dimensions 137 x 82 x 76 mm
Terminal pitch 98mm, 1/2-13 nut
600A continuous current rating
2500A max breaking capacity
Rated to 750V max
Sealed contacts for long life
Built in coil back EMF supression
Very low holding current (0.3 Amp) when contacts closed
NOTE: If contactors are used to switch devices containing large input capacitors (such as EV controllers) a precharge circuit must be implemented to avoid contactor damage.
