A vacuum contactor is an electrical device that is used for load breaking with the help of a controlled switch. The switch can make or break an electrical circuit with the help of vacuum interrupter contacts. Vacuum interrupting contacts are enclosed inside a vacuum bottle, which prevents the development of arc when there is a voltage fluctuation. Some of the prominent applications of vacuum contactors are in (3-phase or 4-phase AC motors) capacitors and transformers usually used for voltage fluctuation protection and short-circuit prevention. The increase in power consumption and various delivery channels has stimulated the demand for vacuum contactor.
