Courtesy: AutomationDirectAutomationDirect’s WEG CWC series miniature contactors are designed for switching and controlling motors. The compact dimensions for its IEC current rating, up to 22 A, AC-3 utilization category, allows it to take up less space inside electrical enclosures while still offering up to a powerful 15 hp at 460 V.

Dimensions of the 7 A to 16 A contactors are the same for ac or dc coil voltages. The dc models feature low consumption coils allowing operation directly from a PLC without interface relays. Available in three-pole and four-pole models, contactors are 35 mm DIN-rail mountable and feature IP20-rated housings, self-lifting pressure plates and coil voltage indication.
