The ASCO 918 LIGHTING CONTACTOR IS THE MOST COMPACT MECHANICALLY HELD LIGHTING CONTACTOR ON THE MARKET.
The ASCO 918 LIGHTING CONTACTOR has a 30 ampere rating to 600 volts AC. Available with 2 to 12 poles, it is the most compact multi-pole lighting contactor available. Suitable for handling all types of lighting, the ASCO 918 is listed under UL 508 for ballast, tungsten, resistive and general purpose loads.
A patented operating mechanism of the ASCO 918 results in a LIGHTING CONTACTOR that is mechanically held and electrically operated. Contacts are power driven to both the open and closed positions by a momentary pulse, thereby providing quieter operation because there is no AC hum as is experienced with magnetically-held contactors.
