A sealed contactor is an electrical product that is used for controlling the flow of electricity through a circuit. Usually, a sealed contactor is designed with two or more metal plates that are separated by an insulator. When a voltage is applied to the plates, they will close and allow current to flow through the circuit. A sealed contactor is widely used in various applications owing to its numerous advantages including the ability to provide protection from environmental factors such as water, dust, gas, and other particles that can fill the air. Furthermore, the growing awareness about environmental protection along with the rising number of renewable energy projects across the world also some of the factors that are anticipated to propel the market growth during the forecast period.
