Planned to be launched in the end of 2023. GIGAVAC continues leadership in sealed switching technology with the introduction of sealed fuse products. GIGAVAC fuse products now include the PyroTactor™, the world’s first contactor with integrated pyro fuse, and the GigaFuse™, the world’s only hermetically sealed electromechanical fuse. Both of these series are designed for high voltage and high power fuse application requirements. GFC PyroTactor™ combines the function of HV fuses and contactors in a single device – thereby eliminating the need to size each component separately. The GFC Series is bi-directional, capable of handling system voltages up to 1500V, features include passive and active triggering. This new design significantly reduces resistance, eliminates thermal aging, and significantly reduces install time, complexity, and cost. The GFP and GFPA GigaFuse™ Series includes fuse products with both passive and passive / active combinations. Like the GFC Series, the GFP and GFPA Series significantly reduce resistance, eliminate thermal aging, and dramatically reduce install time, complexity, and cost. Other GIGAVAC sealed switching products include EPIC® sealed contactors, GX Industrial Contactors and MX Mil-Grade / Heavy Duty Contactors, along with GV hermetically sealed cost effective contactors, PCB mount contactors, MiniTACTOR™ contactors, and hermetically sealed manual disconnect switches.

Gigavac

US manufacturer of DC contactors, High-Voltage relays and manual safety load break switches.
GIGAVAC’s sealed switching expertise includes products that rely on new patented technologies for lower cost sealed contactors and manual disconnect switches.
GIGAVAC was founded in 2002 by a small group of individuals who sought to launch a company with customer service as the cornerstone. The original tag line, Today’s Experts in High Voltage Relays, was a testimony to the decades of experience in the engineering design, manufacturing, and application service of sealed switching products brought to the company by its founders.
This growth also allowed GIGAVAC engineering to focus on using their expertise to develop a new technology tackling the challenges of high power switching in a sealed contactor. The result is the patented EPIC line of sealed contactors introduced in late 2006. EPIC contactors have always been manufactured exclusively at GIGAVAC in the USA.
The line of EPIC products grew to include GX Industrial Contactors, MX High Reliability Contactors, and Sensing Contactors. GIGAVAC’s sealed switching expertise soon included products that rely on new patented technologies for lower cost sealed contactors and manual disconnect switches.
GIGAVAC, member of the Sensata Technologies group, invites you to visit their new, ISO9001, 40,000 square foot (3,700 sq m) factory and headquarters in Carpinteria near Santa Barbara, California to find out more about the unsurpassed sealed switching products.
