Scolmore continues to expand its Elucian consumer unit range to provide electricians with the broadest possible range of units and protectives devices to cater for all installation requirements.
New to Elucian is a range of 2 Pole (20A) or 4 Pole (25A, 40A and 63A) modular contactors in a variety of normally open or normally closed contact configurations compatible with the Elucian range of consumer units.
A contactor is an electrically controlled switch similar to a relay – essentially low voltage circuit component used for switching a higher-current electrical power circuit (more than 15 amps or a few kw).
It can be connected directly to devices with a high load, as it has rapid open and closing features designed to control and suppress the electrical arc discharged when a heavy motor current is interrupted.
It is not, however, designed as a circuit breaker to interrupt a short circuit current.
The new Elucian 2 pole 20A modular contactors are 18mm in width and will take up one space/way inside a consumer unit.
The Elucian 4 pole 25A modular contactors are 36mm in width and will take up two spaces/ways inside a consumer unit.
The Elucian 4 pole 40A and 63A modular contactors are 54mm in width and will take up three spaces/ways inside a consumer unit.
An updated Elucian brochure has been produced and will showcase all the latest additions to the range. It can be downloaded here
