Product Announcement from Eaton Corporation - Power Control & Logic Components
Cutler-Hammer Lighting Contactors from Eaton's electrical business are designed to provide a safe, convenient means for local or remote switching of tungsten (incandescent filament) or ballast (fluorescent and mercury arc) lamp loads. They are also suitable for other loads such as low pressure and high-pressure sodium lamp loads and other non-motor (resistive) loads.
They are not recommended for most sign flashing loads. These lighting contactors are designed to withstand the large initial inrush currents of tungsten lamp loads without contact welding. They are fully rated and do not require derating.
- Ballast Lamps - Fluorescent, Mercury Vapor, Metal Halide Sodium Vapor, Quartz - 600V maximum.
- Filament Lamps - Incandescent, Infrared, Heating - 480V maximum, line to line; 277V maximum line to neutral.
- Resistance Heating - Radiant and convection heating, furnaces and ovens.
C30CN Electrically and Mechanically Held Contactors
The Enclosed C30CN (ECC) is available with an electrically or mechanically held contactor in a non-combination unit. The C30CN can be configured with up to 12 poles (30A maximum per pole). Power poles are available in single or double pole designs and can be mounted to provide either normally open or normally closed operation with a maximum of 12 NO poles or 8 NC and 4 NO poles. Each pole is capable of accepting up to 8 AWG wire. Available in 2- or 3-wire control and in a wide range of enclosure types.
CN35 Electrically Held Contactors
Cutler-Hammer® Type CN35 Electrically Held Lighting Contactors from Eaton's electrical business are designed to handle the switching of tungsten (incandescent) or ballast (fluorescent and mercury arc) lamp loads as well as other non-motor (resistive) loads. The Enclosed CN32 (ECL03, ECL12 and ECL14) is available in non-combination and combination styles. Available in 2- or 3-wire control and in a wide range of enclosure types.
A202 Magnetically Latched Contactors
The Cutler-Hammer Enclosed A202 (ECL04, ECL13, and ECL15) is available in non-combiantion and combination styles. A permanent magnet is built into the contactor structure that will maintain the contactor in its energized state indefinitely without using control power. When energized, a DC current is applied to the latch coil, producing a magnetic field that reinforces the polarity of the permanent magnet, pulling in the contactor. The current to the coil is disconnected by the coil clearing interlock. In order to drop out the contactor, it is necessary to apply a field through the STOP coil in the reverse direction to the permanent magnet. This momentarily cancels the magnetic attraction and the contactor drops out. Available in 2- or 3-wire control and in a wide range of enclosure types.
