The undesirable phenomenon of the contact bounce causes severe erosion of the contacts and, as a consequence, their electrical life and reliability are greatly reduced. On the other hand, the bounce of the armature can provoke re-opening of the contacts, even when they have already closed. This paper deals with the elimination of the bounce in both,(More)
For many decades, electromechanical contactors have been widely used in the industry, and over 80% are equipped with AC powered coils. Electromechanical contactors have the drawback of the mechanical movement of some of their parts and the wear related with it. This movement causes the contacts to impact during closure, producing a bouncing of the contacts(More)
