Switching Devices

Switching power supplies are categorized into AC-DC power supplies, DC-DC converters, and DC-AC inverters. They convert the input of commercial or DC power supplies into specified voltages or currents and are employed in almost all electronic devices or systems that require a stable DC power supply.

Types of Switching Devices

1. Contactors

A contactor is an electrically-controlled switch used for switching an electrical power circuit.
A contactor is typically controlled by a circuit which has a much lower power level than the switched circuit, such as a 24-volt coil electromagnet controlling a 230-volt motor switch.

b. For PFC systems with and without reactors

2. Thyristor Switching Module

Thyristor modules are very effective in eliminating the inrush current of capacitors.
They have controlled switching devices that can be made to switch on when the voltage across the thyristor is zero, thereby eliminating the inrush current. Additionally, thyristor switching is used when the load variation is rapid as in the case of cranes, lifts, spot welding, plastic extrusion etc.

b. Presses
c. Welding machines
d. Elevators
e. Cranes
f. Wind turbines


Thristor Modules for Dynamic PFC

With the outbreak of COVID-19, many businesses are affected massively worldwide. Having said that it is a global crisis being very uncertain in nature, we don’t really have an idea as to how long this will last.

During this Pandemic, we have taken precautionary measures by lockdown our office and branches and encouraging our employees to work from home. Thus, our IVR Support No. may not be reachable or you may face some difficulties to create or log a support ticket.

To shield this lockdown situation and help you with the best of support, we have set up the Service Desk Support Continuity Team, to assist you to resolve your queries and concerns.

Please stay safe and feel free to reach out to us for any technical requirements.
