|Carlo Gavazzi is launching the REC Series 3-phase Solid State Contactors and Reversing Contactors. The REC Series is twenty times more durable than equivalent mechanical contactors and succeeds in handling high frequency switching.|
The REC Series is comprised of a 3-pole non-reversing version with three switched phases or a 3-pole non-reversing and reversing versions with two switched phases. The first solution eliminates direct connection from the power supply to motor, while the second one maintains the same performance level while providing relevant cost reduction. The REC is mechanically compatible with Carlo Gavazzi’s CGT-22 line of bimetallic overload modules, by means of a plastic adapter.
|The REC Series is cUL listed as a motor starter and it’s main technical features include:|
|REC2 / REC3 – direct starting of 3-phase motors up to 5Hp at 480VAC|
REC2R – direct starting and reversing of 3-phase motors up to 5Hp at 480VAC
Full load rating at 40°C / 104°F
Rated operational voltage up to 600VAC
AC or DC control options
Mechanical contactor resemblance with covered heat sink
Connects to CGT-22 overload module
Control status LED indication
DIN-rail or panel mounting
In addition to competitive pricing, the REC Series assures substantial savings, as it reduces system downtime and maintenance costs. The solid state contactors are provided with a 1,600 Vp blocking voltage option that enhances their surge current ratings.
REC is an electronic contactor intended to replace the tradi- tional mechanical counterpart used to switch three phase motors. The range includes 2 and 3 phase switching ver- sions up to 4kW and 600Vrms. Options with high surge cur- rent and I2t for fusing purposes are also available.The relay switches instantaneously upon application of the control voltage to emulate mechanical relay operation. A covered heatsink resolves any issues with regards to cables running close to the heatsink and eliminates the need for protective earth cabling. The product can be mounted on DIN-rail or on a panel. Note: Specifications stated at 25°C unless specified.
