EVC 80 Main Contactor

EVC 80 Contactor

The new EVC 80 contactor provides safer, reliable switching in lower power battery systems or auxiliary circuits in a compact, plug-in design.

The new EVC 80 contactor was designed for innovation, reliability, and ease of installation. Featuring a continuous current of up to 80A and a voltage rating of up to 450V, the EVC 80 contactor is best suited as the main contactor in lower current applications and the pre-charge or auxiliary in higher-power batteries. It also provides enhanced safety, protection and high performance from a hermetically-sealed nitrogen gas contact chamber. The EVC 80 contactor is optimized for applications in tight mounting spaces, with overall dimensions of just 50x40x37mm. Designed for OEM bus electrical center applications (BECs), this plug-in contactor is non-polarity sensitive, providing ease of installation for coil power. A shielded outer core design offers enhanced EMC capabilities. The EVC 80 contactor is tested to IEC 6469 standards
