Eatons Moeller Business expands its contactor product range from 90 to 160kW: Smaller, lighter, cheaper and more energy efficient
Bonn . . . As one of the leading manufacturers of components, systems and solutions for electrical engineering and automation, Eaton is launching new power contactors. New materials and technological processes allow the development of new and attractive solutions. This fact is also the case at Eaton: The contactors for 90 kW, 110 kW and 160 kW represent the start of the new designs - making them smaller, lighter and cheaper.
Eaton is offering DILM185A, DILM225A and DILM300A type contactors with an inexpensive electronic coil actuation and compact dimensions. The contactors can be used in applications such as the switching of motors to utilization categories AC-3 and AC-4 and for switching resistive and capacitive loads.
The DILM185A and DILM225A contactors have the same base area and the same hole pattern as their predecessors. This makes it possible for all users to replace them easily. The depth, which has been considerably reduced by 28 millimeters, results in a significant weight reduction of over 70 percent. The new coil electronics reduces the power consumption in sealing 30 percent. The DILM300A contactor has a considerably smaller width, height and depth, thus saving space in the control panel and simplifying mounting. In addition to a smaller base area and mounting depth than before, as well as a reduced weight, the reduced power consumption is also a financial benefit.
The contactors can naturally control operating voltages up to 1000 V. The design, shape and color of the new DILM185A, DILM225A and DILM300A contactors fit seamlessly into Eaton's entire contactor range. The accessories required, such as cable terminal block, covers and motor protective relays have been adapted by Eaton to match the new designs. Naturally, the associated Z5 overload relays for direct mounting or for separate mounting are still available for these contactors. Matching covers ensure that finger and back of hand protection is provided.
