Application: safe disconnect / switching of high CD loads

The EV200 is perfectly suited for all DC applications where high power systems must be safely disconnected from the power supply. Applications include photovoltaic, electric mobility, high-performance electric boats, …. With its PWM-controlled economizer, the EV200 is extremely energy efficient. With a hold power of less than 1.7 Watts @12Vdc, it is recommended for battery-operated systems.

As a hermetically sealed high-power DC contactor, the EV200 can be used in harsh explosive environments. Since the EV200 works independently of mounting position and pressure, it can even be used in space. The EV 200 is also available in special MIL-versions.

Important for use

  • Continuous (carry) current is not the same as power switching current
  • What type of load is to be switched? (Resistive, capacitive or inductive)
  • Thermal management at high loads
  • Use pre-charging Relay and pre-charge resistor
  • Protective circuit: No suppression diode allowed!
