How do Auxiliary Contacts work?
An Auxiliary Contact is an electromechanical device that is mounted typically to contactors. They are physically connected to the contactor, with simultaneous activation and deactivation applying to both of the devices at the same time.
Aux Contacts can be installed onto contactors either by front mounting, or side mounting. This is usually clear in the shape and size of the product, but please check the compatibility of your devices. Aux Contacts are really useful devices to aid in keeping an eye on the contactor.
You can, for example, hook up a low voltage LED directly to the Aux Contactor without having to worry about the overall voltage of the contactor it is linked to (as long the Aux Contactor is electrically isolated from the contactor) you could use the LED to monitor the device i.e. indicate if the motor is off/on.
Tesys D side mount auxiliary contacts (662-6248, 744-6983, 400-1467, 400-1473) are not compatible with Tesys D DC Contactors.
