This New Product Brief (NPB) is part of a video series highlighting the features, applications, and technical specs of newly-released products.

TDK-EPCOS HVC High-Voltage Contactors

EPCOS HVC series high-voltage contactors are designed for high-voltage DC switching applications in harsh environments, such as EV chargers, renewable energy storage, and more. Contactors are available with continuous current ratings up to 500A and a maximum voltage rating up to 900VDC.

The HVC series switches extremely fast and has a hermetically-sealed, gas-filled switching chamber ensuring arcs are quickly extinguished and enables reliable operation for 1 million cycles. The contactors are bipolar, simplifying installation and allow a single contactor to be used for charging and discharging batteries.

Stuck detection, voltage sensing, and temperature sensing are all available as options for increased feedback and control of the application. EPCOS HVC series contactors produce no EMI and are certified to UL 60947-4-1.
