Gigavac announced the availability of the new GV210 Series of hermetically sealed, gas-filled contactors, which offer high performance in a compact package for applications carrying 150A and below at 12 to 900 VDC. The series is the latest addition to GIGAVAC brand product line and is suitable as the main contactor for rapidly electrifying applications such as forklifts, home energy storage and small electric vehicles (EVs) as well as the pre-charge contactor in larger battery pack applications such as utility-scale energy storage and large EVs.
The GV210 can efficiently carry up to 150A continuously with low power losses. Capable of high pulse currents for fuse coordination, the contactor is also able to switch loads which enables safe operation. The hermetic seal exceeds IP67 and IP69 and prevents oxidation, allowing for reliable operation in corrosive or wet applications across a long mechanical lifetime of one million cycles. With an intrinsically safe design that is not mounting position sensitive, the GV210 series is suitable for use in a wide variety of installations in hazardous classified operating environments. The ability to switch and carry high currents on modest size conductors makes this series a more capable solution than open air contactors.
This series is ideal for use in the following types of battery systems:
– Main Contactor Solution for Electrification Applications with Small Battery Packs
– Quality Contactors for Higher Performing Lithium-ion Battery Chargers
– Ideal Pre-charge Contactor for Large Battery System Start up
