The DC182P motor reversing type of contactor has been designed for direct current loads, particularly motors as used on electric winches. The DC182P is a monoblock construction, resulting in a neat compact design which is compatible with modern electronic control systems. The DC182P is suitable for switching Resistive and Inductive loads and is sealed to IP67.
The main contact circuit, designed for motor reversing, has a built in failsafe, so that if both coils are energised simultaneously the circuit remains open. The DC182P has double breaking main contacts with silver alloy contact tips, which are weld resistant, hard wearing and have excellent conductivity. The DC182P M8 main stud terminals can be configured in a variety of ways in order to suit the application. Coil connections are by means of 6.3mm spades and mounting is via the supplied bracket and can be horizontal or vertical. When vertical the M8 contact studs should point upwards. If the requirement is for downwards orientation we can adjust the contactor to compensate for this.
