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