A Schaltbau Company


The quality of a contactor is best seen when switching off. Electric arcs are ignited between the contacts as they open – just like lightning bolts in a thundercloud. In order to extinguish these arcs we have developed a patented contactor concept by which the arc is driven into the arc chute and extinguished within a few milliseconds. Thus Schaltbau can offer real equipment safety. For the innovative contactor technology prevents the contacts from welding or burning and the equipment from being totally destroyed as a result of a component failure.

In a contactor special you will learn more about the technical basics and applications of Schaltbau contactors.
