Abstract : A breadboard and two prototype Advanced Line Contactors (Hybrid mechanical contactor and transistor switch) have been fabricated and successfully tested. These units are able to turn-on, carry, and turn-off continuous load currents between zero and 400 Adc at 270 Vdc. For non-continuous overload currents of 600 Adc, they are able to turn-on turn-off three times in two minutes.
