This vacuum motor contactor is a direct replacement for the GE Limitamp 5 KV Model CR2814 motor contactors. The new vacuum contactors reduce maintenance, improve safety and prolong the life of the contactor without changing the MCC or switchgear lineup.
Vacuum contactors reduce arc flash hazards by containing the arc within the vacuum bottles, operate faster and more reliably.
Bus bars are insulated.
Heavy arc chutes containing asbestos are eliminated.
Vacuum contactors can offer 250,000 electrical operations before requiring contact maintenance or replacement.
