Future Electronics Offers the DRC3 Series of Solid State Contactors from Crydom

Posted Oct 20, 2014 by futureelec
Future Electronics has announced immediate availability of Crydom’s DRC3 Series of solid state contactors.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Press Release) Oct 20, 2014 -- Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, offers Crydom's DRC3 Series of solid state contactors.

The Solicon DRC3 Series are solid state contactors intended for frequently switching on and off three phase loads up to 5 HP, 480 VAC 7.6 Amps. They are available in both contactor versions and reversing contactor versions.

The Solicon Contactor DRC3P is available in either instantaneous turn-on (for Motor Control) or zero voltage turn-on (for Resistive Loads). It is available in either 2 or 3 controlled leg versions. The 2 legs control version is particularly suitable for motor control circuits where the neutral conductor is not utilized.

The Solicon Reversing Contactor DRC3R includes an interlock control that allows only off, forward and reverse operation in a safe mode while providing high space saving; it switches instantaneously upon application of the control voltage unless an instantaneous change of direction is commanded, then it will delay the direction change by 100msec in order to prevent simultaneous forward and reverse operations.

All the models of the Solicon DRC3 Series combine the benefits and advantages of a solid state contactor with the functionality and simplicity of use of an electromechanical contactor thanks to the proprietary thermal management technology (Patented) and complete electrical insulation (no grounding required); the embedded auxiliary contacts, normally open and/or normally closed are intended to be used at 18-280Vac. Three different control voltages are available in order to cover most the applications. All models include overvoltage protection.
