Emergency disconnect switches and railway contactors for industry, rolling stock and battery-powered vehicles.
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.
With a view to the special requirements of railway engineering, Schaltbau has developed sophisticated solutions for extinguishing electric arcs and successfully introduced them into the market.
The know-how and technology of railway contactors formed the basis of the expansion of the product line to cover industrial applications, such as photovoltaic systems and wind turbines, computer and UMTS backup systems, electric vehicles and industrial trucks.
