AutomationDirect Adds WEG Miniature Contactors

Press Release:
  Mar 21, 2014 — AutomationDirect’s CWC series miniature contactors are a complete solution for switching and controlling motors. The compact dimensions for its IEC current rating, up to 22A, AC-3 utilization category, allows it to take up less space inside electrical enclosures while still offering up to a powerful 15 hp @460V.

Dimensions of the 7A to 16A contactors are the same for AC or DC coil voltages, making panel design and assembly easier. 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 35mm DIN-rail mountable and feature IP20-rated housings, self-lifting pressure plates and coil voltage indication.

WEG CWC series miniature contactor prices start at $11; available accessories include front mounting auxiliary contact blocks, surge suppressors, electronic timing relays, wiring kits, mechanical interlock and latch blocks, a wide selection of overload relays and more.
