Model JB 46 150 - 200 AMP DC Contactor

DC Contactor
150 - 200 Amp Rating, Coil Voltage 12 V to 240 VDC

JB 46 Series Contactor is rated at 150 - 200 amps. This versatile unit is available in coil voltages from 12 V through to 240 VDC. It can be mounted in pairs on a bracket together with interconnecting electrical links. When used in electric vehicle systems, the JBM and JBV styles are designed for motor reversing.

There are options available for the JB 46 Series:

  • Magnetic Blow-Outs - Normally used when switching voltages higher than 48 VDC
  • Auxiliary Switches - Available on all JB Series except the JBM styles. Rated 5 amps at 24 VDC
  • Large Contacts - Used mainly in severe applications such as pump motor switching. The suffix “L” denotes the large contacts.
