LARGE CONTACTORS HAVE WIDER APPLICATIONS APPEAL

New from Rockwell Automation, the Allen-Bradley Bulletin 100-E series of IEC contactors will help machine builders design smaller, more energy-efficient panels while meeting international standards and addressing the latest energy-efficiency guidelines.

Contactors have traditionally been used to switch electrical loads such as motors, fans and pumps. Today, though, larger contactors are being used to isolate or bypass these loads and for switching resistive loads.

To accommodate this change, the Bulletin 100-E contactors feature a universal coil, which offers more flexibility when controlling with multiple voltages.

In addition, the new contactors are significantly smaller than previous product lines. The Bulletin 100-E IEC contactors have a 25 per cent smaller footprint than previous product lines.

They replace the Allen-Bradley Bulletin 100-D series of IEC contactors. And whereas the 100-D series covered applications from 115 to 860A, the new contactors are designed for applications from 116A to 2.65kA.
