IDEC now offers a new series of IEC-style contactors and starters, YC1U Contactors. These contactors feature weld-resistant silver alloy contacts, giving them a higher level of reliability and an extra long life. Contacts are also Cadmium-free for environmental safety. IZUMI YC1U overloads feature bimetallic thermal overload relays directly mounted to the contactor. Plus a full range of accessories are available for this series including top and side mounting auxiliary contact blocks, coil surge suppressors, timers and more. A mechanical interlock accessory can be used when using two contactors to reverse a motor, to prevent both sets of contacts closing at the same time.
