Product Brief: TDK Corporation presents the new HVC200A bipolar high-voltage contactor for the switching of high DC voltages and currents. It is designed for operating voltages of up to 450 V DC and a high continuous current of 200 A.
Product Feature: The HVC200A, with its dimensions of 89 mm x 44 mm x 93.5 mm (LxWxH) is available in drive versions for 12 V (B88269X1000C) or 24 V (B88269X1010C). Both versions have a power of 6 W at the rated voltage. The new contactors can be equipped with a circuit for detecting the switching status. High-voltage contactors with a high continuous current capability are used, for example, in e-mobility applications for the fast disconnection of the battery from the drive, as well as in DC charging stations.
Application: Utility-scale PV power plants use. and uninterruptible power supplies (UPS).
Benefits: Versions with 12 V and 24 V drives for continuous currents of between 100 A and 500 A at maximum permissible operating voltages of 900 V are currently in development. It comes with high-speed extinguishing of arcs and includes optional detection of switching status.
