Courtesy: Carlo GavazziCarlo Gavazzi’s RGC1F Series of solid-state contactors have integrated fusing and system monitoring. RGC1F includes three functions in one housing: power switch, short circuit protection (by semiconductor fuse), and system monitoring. RGC1FA is the version including the power switch and integrated fuse holder, while the RCG1FS adds the functionality of the fuse, solid-state contactor, and load monitoring. The front of the product can be opened for easy access to the fuse holder, which accepts fuses from a wide range of manufacturers. A fast-acting semiconductor fuse provides short circuit protection for both the RCG1F’s solid-state semiconductor and the load cables. The product width is 35 mm for the full range and covers applications up to 40 amps ac and 600 Vac.
