TE Connectivity Releasing Its K200 Series Contactors
One of the world’s leaders in connectivity and sensors, are exclusively releasing its brand new K200 series contactors. These contactors are small, very lightweight, and efficient. They are also 200-AMP 28 VDC while a power switching solution for the 28 VDC aerospace and defense applications. With a single pole and a single throw, they are normally and open and are designed for use in the DC power distribution systems. Not only are they for the commercial but they are designed for the military aircraft and ground vehicles as well. The company providing these contactors is TE Connectivity.
The engineers that usually do the research for these products are Aerospace power distribution system engineers. What they are looking for is usually the smallest and lightest solutions in power handling and switching devices. These specific contactors include a reliable switching mechanism. The reliable mechanism is created to help keep power consumption and heat low so that way the performance is maximized. The K200 series is also equipped to handle the high inrush loads, while offering a compact solution so that way space and weight is saved creating the lightest and smallest possible.
“Our K200 contactor product series addresses the market demand for increased power to weight ratio,”said Dan Smith, product manager, Global Aerospace, Defense & Marine, TE Connectivity.
“This product family offers substantial advantage over 200-Amp contactors of the past with a time tested record of reliability.”
While the K200 series was specifically designed and tested by TE to comply with the Mil-PRF-6106 requirements, they are also going to be available in the bus bar or chassis mounts. The bus bar and chassis mounts support the power panel or in a standalone position.
The company is a $12 billion global technology leader. The company’s solutions are essential in today’s world that is constantly increasing and improving technology. They collaborate with engineers to transform their concepts into creations, which redefines what is possible while using their education and state of the art products and solutions.
