Why are contactors used?


Historically, contactors have been used to directly switch on and off electrical loads, such as electric motors, and even today they are used this way in many applications. In modern systems, however, starting and stopping is often done electronically and the purpose of the contactor is mainly to enable galvanic separation and to act as a switch in the event of an abnormality or fault in the system.
