Motor Starter Contactors

Contactors are composed of a contact system, an electromagnetic system and an arc extinguishing device. They are electrically-controlled switches that are designed to connect to high-current load devices like electric motors. Contactors typically fit with normally-open contacts, so that the power to the load is shut off when the coil is de-engergized. They can control and suppress arcs produced when interrupting heavy motor currents.

Combination motor starters contain the motor starter, a disconnection device and a short-circuit protection device in a single enclosure. This provides an added level of protection from electrical faults that can cause motor overheating and damage.

Contactors vs Starters A contactor is an electrically-controlled switch similar to a relay. A starter is a combination of a contactor and an overload relay. A starter has relays that are both normally-open and normally-closed, while a contactor operates with only normally-open contacts. A starter uses overload relays to protect the motor from overcurrents by shutting the motor down to prevent overheating. A contactor applies voltage to a coil to close the contacts to supply power, and de-energizes the coil to interrupt power to the circuit. Therefore, a contactor does not have the overload protection options that a starter does.
