GE CONTACTORS – MOTOR FIELD IC2812B107 GE CONTACTOR IC2812B207 GE CONTACTOR INDUSTRIAL CONTROL COMPONENTS
GE MOTOR FIELD CONTACTORS
The synchronous-motor field GE contactor is available in ratings, from 100 to 265 amps. The field contactor has two normally open poles for applying and removing field excitation and one normally closed pole for inserting resistance in the field for discharge.
These extremely fast-acting GE contactors are designed specifically for synchronous-motor applications. The normally open and closed poles have the correct amount of overlap to assure against the build-up of high induced voltages in the motor field when excitation is removed.
The GE field contactors are of the heavy-duty, clapper-type design for industrial use. The contactors have proved in the field that they give long life under all conditions of operation and service. The correct amount of wipe keeps the contact tips clean which provides positive electrical contact when the poles are closed. Blowout coils are connected to each pole to quickly extinguish the arc within the arc chute. Arc chutes are non-asbestos and can easily be removed to inspect contact tips.
