RU280

NO - SP - ST

The Reduced Silver series are suitable for applications where infrequent switching is specified. In such applications the degradation of the tip is minimal and therefore a higher volume of silver is unnecessary.

Developed for Uninterrupted current applications the RU280 is typically used in line contactors or Power Distribution Systems.

The contactors have double breaking main contacts with silver alloy tips, which are weld resistant, hard wearing and have excellent conductivity. They are easy to install, with M5 tapped holes in the switch frame together with a range of mounting brackets. Mounting can be vertical or horizontal, when vertical the M10 contact studs should point upwards. If the requirement is for downwards orientation we can adjust the contactor to compensate for this.
