AC contactors play a vital role when it comes to controlling the flow of electricity in a circuit. These electromagnetic devices are commonly used in air conditioning, heating and ventilation systems to control power and protect electrical equipment from damage. In this blog, we will delve into the importance of AC contactors and their key components.

AC contactor is an electromagnetic device with NO (normally open) main contact and three poles. It uses air as the arc extinguishing medium, making it a reliable choice for electrical systems. The key components of the AC contactor include coils, short-circuit rings, static iron core, moving iron core, moving contacts, static contacts, auxiliary normally open contacts, auxiliary normally closed contacts, pressure springs, reaction springs, buffer springs, Arc extinguisher, etc. Fire extinguishing hoods are all made of original parts.

One of the main functions of an AC contactor is to control the flow of electrical current to various components of the electrical system. When the coil is energized, a magnetic field is generated, causing the moving iron core to attract the moving contacts and close the main circuit. This allows electrical current to flow through the circuit and power connected devices. When the coil is de-energized, a spring-loaded mechanism causes the contacts to open, interrupting the power supply.

In addition to controlling the power supply, AC contactors also provide protection for electrical equipment. When a sudden surge or short circuit occurs, the AC contactor quickly interrupts the power supply to prevent equipment damage. This not only protects the equipment, but also ensures the safety of the entire electrical system.

The arc-quenching function of the AC contactor is another important aspect to consider. When a contact opens or closes, an arc is formed due to the flow of electrical current. The arc extinguishing cover works together with the air medium to quickly extinguish the arc, prevent damage and ensure the life of the contacts.

Furthermore, the use of original parts in the construction of the AC contactor ensures reliability and durability. Original parts are designed to meet the specific requirements of the contactor, ensuring optimal performance and service life. This is especially important in critical applications where electrical system reliability is critical.

In summary, AC contactors are important components in electrical systems, providing control, protection, and reliability. Understanding their importance and critical components is essential to ensure the proper operation of electrical equipment and the safety of the entire system. When selecting an AC contactor, it is important to choose a device with original parts and the necessary features to meet the requirements of your specific application.
