RGC2P and RGC3P Series Solid-State Contactors

Carlo Gavazzi’s solid-state contactors feature proportional output control

Image of Carlo Gavazzi’s RGC2P and RGC3P Solid State ContactorsCarlo Gavazzi’s RGC2P and RGC3P series deliver the switching capacity of solid state contactors with the added benefit of controlling the output power of 3-phase loads through an analog control input. The RGC2P is designed for 2-pole control, 3-phase switching while the RGC3P controls all three phases. These products can receive variable current or voltage input, including the use of a potentiometer dial. Users can order specific models for different switching modes, such as phase angle firing, distributed full-cycle control, and soft starting for limiting inrush current of loads having a high temperature coefficient. This makes the RGC2P and RGC3P series ideal for switching short wave infrared heaters, resistive loads, and lighting controls, and can even be used in some motor load applications. Additional options include detection of mains loss, load loss, SSR short circuit, and over temperature, with the alarm condition displayed on an LED indicator and the alarm condition signaled through an EMR output. Additional LEDs indicate input and load status.
