All About Contactors
When applying the control voltage on the coil leads a one and a two, a magnetic field will be generated, attracting the movable lion core towards the fixed core, so the movable contacts which are fixed to the movable core, will move as well towards the fixed contacts to make a contactor and allow the power lines to run to the load. If we interrupt the control voltage, supplying the coil, the magnetic field will disappear, and the fourth spring will push the movable parts back again to their original position that will interrupt the power going to the load.

How MurCal & Pacific Power Group solved an obsolete display issue for MTU owners
n 2012, MTU Solutions discontinued selling the HV1000-MTUJ.
