PCS And PF Softstarters Auxiliary Low Energy Rating
What are the low energy ratings of the PCS or PF soft starter auxiliary contacts? Can they be used with electronics?
- PF auxiliary contacts: Rated for 10mA at 5V, this would be acceptable at 5mA at 17V.
- PCS and PCE auxiliary contacts: Rated for 10mA at 5V, this would be acceptable at 5mA at 17V.
Note:These are ok because higher voltages allow breakthrough of any films, even at a lower current.
PCS And PCE External Auxiliary Contacts:
- PCS-PA-10, -PA20: Rated for 100uA at 100mV, no problem for low energy
- PCS-PA-01, -PA11: Rated for 100mA at 12V, these could be a problem at 5mA at 17V DC
