TE Connectivity has introduced its new KILOVAC K250 range of hermetically-sealed high voltage DC contactors, which are designed to carry more current and isolate higher voltages for harsh environment applications such as unmanned systems and robotics. The new contactors are ideal for a wide range of uses, including power distribution, alternative energy storage systems, circuit protection, and motor control circuit isolation.
The KILOVAC K250 contactors are rated at 250 amps continuous current, with an isolation voltage of 1000 Vdc. They are designed with bi-directional power switching as well as auxiliary contacts to provide engineers with a versatile high voltage contactor. The inclusion of an electronic coil economizer for low power holding capabilities also enhances the performance of the new components.
Paul Waugh, product manager for TE’s Aerospace, Defense and Marine division, commented: “KILOVAC K250 contactors set a new performance standard within the industry by offering a 150% increase in current carry while maintaining package size and weight. We’re offering customers performance they can’t get elsewhere.”
