TE Connectivity’s new high voltage contactors offer higher current carry in a smaller package

KILOVAC K250 high voltage DC contactors are designed for military and commercial markets

HARRISBURG, Pa.  – June 18, 2020 – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, is introducing the KILOVAC K250 high voltage DC contactors. Hermetically sealed and designed for harsh environments, TE’s new contactors carry more current and isolate higher voltages than other contactors on the market of the same size and weight.

The KILOVAC K250 contactors are rated at 250 amps continuous with an isolation voltage of 1000 Vdc. They are designed with bi-directional power switching as well as auxiliary contacts to provide engineers with a versatile high voltage contactor. TE’s new contactors also help enhance performance with the inclusion of an electronic coil economizer for low power holding capabilities.

“KILOVAC K250 contactors set a new performance standard within the industry by offering a 150% increase in current carry while maintaining package size and weight”, said Paul Waugh, product manager for TE’s Aerospace, Defense and Marine division. “We’re offering customers performance they can’t get elsewhere.”

KILOVAC K250 contactors are designed for a range of applications, including power distribution, alternative energy storage systems, circuit protection, and motor control circuit isolation.

Electronic Fuses (eFuses)

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and ON Semiconductor

Today’s advanced designs demand advanced circuit protection. The days of replacing old-school fuses are long gone, and we need solutions that provide more robust protection and improved failure modes. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Pramit Nandy of ON Semiconductor about the latest advances in electronic fuses, and how they can protect against overcurrent, thermal, and overvoltage.
