Magnetic Contactors

A magnetic contactor is an electromechanical switch used in situations when a circuit must be turned on and off, such as when lighting, heaters, and motors are needed to be started. The magnetic contactor handles moving energy from one location to another through the switch contacts.

Discover TeSys, a range of reversing contactors and electrical magnetic switches, designed to make and break current for a variety of applications, including IEC and NEMA. TeSys offers high reliability and a long mechanical and electrical life and comes with a complete line of accessories for motor and load control.
