Direct current (DC) contactors are electrical devices used in various industries to control and switch direct current electrical circuits. These products are engineered to handle the unique characteristics of DC power, which maintains a steady flow and consistent voltage level. 

DC contactors are particularly great for the EV market because of their ability to carry high currents and voltages.

HOW DC CONTACTORS WORK

DC contactors serve as electrical switches that are used to control the flow of current in a circuit by opening and closing a circuit path. These switches are turned on by applying an operating voltage across two external contacts. This energizes an internal coil, creating a magnetic field that attracts or repels an internal connecting contact. This results in the function of an electromechanical switch.
