DILA-XHIR22 front-mounted auxiliary contact
Eaton’s Moeller Business adds a Front-Mounted Auxiliary Contact to its contactor Product Range.
Bonn, … As one of the leading manufacturers of components and systems for electrical engineering and automation, Eaton’s Moeller Business is launching a new auxiliary contact device for Switching Small Signals.
The new DILA-XHIR22 front-mounted auxiliary contact from Eaton Moeller enables users to switch small signals reliably. One auxiliary NO contact and one auxiliary NC contact are provided as micro switches. These contacts with their operating range – min. 1mA at 3V – are specially designed for signals as they occur in joint operation with PLCs and other electronic components. Thanks to their dust-tight design DILA-XHIR22 contacts are also suitable for harsh ambient conditions.
DILA-XHIR22 units are also provided with one conventional NO and one NC contact, which are required for tasks such as self-latching. The new auxiliary contact for electronic applications can be combined with DILA contactor relays and DILM7 to DILM38 contactors (7 to 38A AC-3 at 400V). Its dimensions are identical with the established front mounting auxiliary contacts. Both NC contacts, as well as the micro switch and conventional contact meet the mirror contact functions according to IEC/EN 60947-4-1 Ann. F. In addition to signaling in electronic circuits, they are particularly suitable for feedback signals in safety applications such as contactor feedback signals in the feedback loop of a safety PLC. The DILA-XHIR22 front mounted auxiliary contact is approved for use in accordance with UL and CSA so that it can be used worldwide.
