Hermetically Sealed for Safe Reliable Switching

HX460 hermetically sealed HVDC contactor redefines the term high power switching by bringing massive power switching capabilities in a compact package. Designed and manufactured in the USA, the hermetically sealed GIGAVAC HX460 joins GIGAVAC’s line-up of other sealed switching products, including High Voltage Relays and EPIC® sealed contactors.

With a package size of approximately 6×6 inches (154×154 mm), the GIGAVAC HX460 power connection busbars allow continuous application circuit currents of 600A and beyond. The SPDT, single pole double throw, auxiliary contacts are mechanically linked to provide a reliable indication of the main contacts in the closed position. The sealed internal chambers for both the contacts and coil assures clean switching in any environment, making the HX460 suitable for operation in hazardous, classified locations. Safe make-and-break power switching can be achieved for high power applications at powers up to 600kW. With bidirectional switching capability and continuous current carry to 600A, this GIGAVAC sealed contactor is the perfect choice for many solar applications including inverters, and DC combiner boxes along with a variety of industrial drive systems including rail and traction applications that require a high voltage dielectric rating.
