Tri-MEC vacuum contactors are mainly used for the switching of motors, transformers, capacitors in AC power lines. They can be installed in multi-stack cubicles.
A vacuum contactor comprises several assemblies such as switching mechanism including vacuum interrupters, magnetic actuator, high strength molded front cover and auxiliary devices. Stable and high operating cycle is executed by the vacuum interrupters made of high alumina ceramic tube which makes it possible to degas in a high temperature with excellent mechanical strength.
Actuating is available either at instantaneous or continuous excitation. Functions for safety in connecting and disconnecting are also provided.

We have the major technology that others can not catch up. LS vacuum contactors provide high withstand-current strength and switching capacity as well as versatile auxiliary functions.
- High performance, high reliability and long service life
LS vacuum interrupters that comply with IEC, ANSI and NEMA standards are manufactured by the process of brazing and degasing together in a high vacuum furnace to assure high reliability.
- Superior mechanical strength and degasing
Providing long service life and suited for frequently operating purpose due to using high alumina ceramic tube and degasing in a high temperature.
- High speed interruption and short arcing time
It has fast recovering characteristic of vacuum insulation. When opening it breaks the current at the first current-zero point to minimize the wearing of contacts.
- Reliable interruption of fault current
LS current limiting power fuse can protect the devices and systems from fault current by interrupting within half cycle. High current such as short-circuit current cause a fuse blown out due to the reaction on the material inside of a fuse within such a short time.
LS Tri-MEC vacuum contactors provide several auxiliary functions for safe and comfortable use.
Customer satisfaction through quality and service-LS medium voltage vacuum contactors
