The concise reversing contactor definition.
A reversing contactor simply reverses the polarity of the current by reversing the motor leads, causing the motor to run in the opposite direction. The type of current itself is not a factor, as both AC and DC contactors can be reversing contactors. They have two interlocked contacts and are designed to prevent the motor from running forwards and backwards simultaneously.
What type of reversing contactor is right for you?
Reversing motor contactors can be either IEC or NEMA rated for use across applications such as infrastructure, building and other industrial applications that requires the motor to run in reverse. Available in a number of current ratings from 6A to 65A, reversing contactors are available in 2 pole and multi-pole versions to meet any set of requirements. Not all reversing contactors are created equal so when you are choosing your reversing motor, it’s important to know your system requirements, voltage and current ratings as well as any building codes or standards.
