Multi Purpose EPIC® Sealed Contactor
Kunshan Guoli Vacuum Electric Co., Ltd and GIGAVAC developed GX series Multi Purpose EPIC® Sealed Contactor, which adopt Extended Performance Impervious Ceramic sealing technology. Prior to this new technology, sealed relays & contactors used all ceramic envelopes which are very expensive, glass to metal seals which do not provide true seals over long periods of time, or epoxy and plastic seals that do not provide the high temperature ratings or the micro-sealing needed to use higher performance back fill gasses.
Because GIGAVAC EPIC® technology, Esterline's Leach International (one of the world’s largest aerospace electrical power distribution system integrators and manufacture of relays & contactors) teamed with GIGAVAC to develop the next generation 270Vdc contactors for aircraft.
Thanks to its long life, small volume and light weight, these contactors can be used in the following area:
Mines – drive systems and control
Aircraft moving equipment
Battery back-up applications
Hybrid & Fuel Cell drive systems for large trucks & Busses
Boats and underwater equipment
Solar generator system
AC & DC power switching system.
