Mil-Aero contactors control high power circuits and offer efficient and smart operation to protect against overcurrent and faults. One of the biggest trends today for aerospace and military contactors is building more electronic intelligence to protect against abnormal events and to detect system faults. Our lightweight Mil-Aero contactors offer continuous current ratings up to 2000A and voltages up to 1,800 VDC in compact, sealed packages. Contactors are used to control different power sources in large commercial military aircraft, which includes engine-driven generators, auxiliary power units, batteries, external power, and ram air turbines.
An AC contactor is an electrical switching device that can switch an electrical circuit on and off. Our AC contactors are available in multiple contact configurations, current/voltage ratings, auxiliary contact configurations, and mounting styles. They are available in voltage ranges from 12VAC or 12VDC to 690VAC or 440VDC. Economizer circuits are employed to reduce the amount of power used by the contactor coil during operation.
KILOVAC DC contactors from TE Connectivity (TE) deliver the switching performance demanded by aerospace and defense applications. These lightweight contactors offer continuous current ratings up to 1000 A at 1000 VDC in very compact packages
Our types of switching devices include contactors, relays, switches, and circuit breakers that offer cost-effective, reliable performance to enhance productivity. These products are designed to withstand extreme shock, vibration, temperature, and altitude.
