Magnets, Blowout
A fixed set of magnets aligned with a pair of mating contacts that assist in quenching the arc in high voltage applications during opening of the contacts. The addition of blowout magnets to a contactor causes it to be polarity sensitive. Care must be taken to correctly attach the contactor in a circuit. Typically, blowout magnets are standard in the following applications.
  • Resistive Loads >60 Volts
  • Inductive Loads >48 Volts
