DIL M: AC and DC contactors – perfect twins

Moeller® series
DIL M: AC- und DC-Schütze Our AC and DC contactors DIL M have absolutely perfect dimensions: externally identical just like twins should be. And that for all four sizes up to 170 A. This simplifies planning and engineering.

The compact external dimensions also save precious space in the control panel.
The contactor series up to 38 A even features integrated auxiliary contacts.

At a second glance the inner values are the most important:

  • Integrated suppressor
    Voltage peaks must be avoided when controlling the contactor directly from the PLC. This is why all DC contactors feature integrated suppressors ex-works. They ensure that very short switch-off times can be realised.

  • No coupling relays necessary
    The limitation of the DC pick-up power is decisive here. The new contactors DIL M – up to 38 A – can be controlled from a PLC by 0.5 A DC outputs.

  • Low pick-up and holding power
    The PLC outputs are subject to a significantly lower load. The holding power has been minimised. For example a DILM38 requires a holding power of just 0.5 W. It is therefore unnecessary to have to consider the utilisation factor or maximum current carrying capacity.

  • Twin box terminals provide safety
    Simpler mounting: even different conductor cross-sections are now safer to wire.
