Lighting Contactors

Siemens offers a comprehensive line of lighting contactor products and a wide range of control solutions for lighting applications. Contactors can be used individually for simple control schemes or as integral components in full-featured lighting control systems. Siemens contactors for lighting control provide reliable and efficient means of local or remote switching of lighting as well as non-inductive loads. The rugged construction, heavy-duty ratings and a wide selection of control options and accessories makes the Siemens lighting contactors the right choice for your applications.

Class LE

Electrically held

Electrically held contactors - Class LE

These Contactors are used in applications where it is not critical that the contacts remain in the closed position during loss of control power. Simplicity and compact lightweight design makes these contactors an attractive solution to your budgeting challenges.

 

Features & Benefits:

  • Contacts are rated 20 - 400 amps at 600 volts
  • 3 and 4 pole (up to 12 pole for 30 and 60 amp contactors)
  • Most contactors have built-in auxiliary contacts for convenient 3-wire control
  • Wide range of coil voltages from 24 to 600 VAC 50/60Hz
  • Full line of enclosures including NEMA 1, 3/3R, 4, 4/4X stainless steel and 12

Class LC

Electrically held

Electrically held lighting contactors - Class LC

This class of lighting contactors deliver unprecedented versatility in application, simplicity in configuration and performance in operation. Ingenious design, rugged construction, and a host of truly useful features make them uniquely appealing.

 

Features & Benefits:

  • Convenient side access field power wiring
  • A simple kit easily converts electrically held units to mechanically held and includes a 2- or 3-wire control module
  • Contact position indication – when button protrudes, contact is closed
  • Power poles can easily be added at any time based on changing needs. Furthermore, they may be converted from NO to NC (or vice versa) simply by repositioning

Class CLM & CM

Mechanically held

Mechanically held contactors - Class CLM & CM

Siemens Class CLM & CM magnetically and mechanically held lighting contactors are used in applications where it is critical that the contacts remain in the closed position during loss of control power. These contactors do not change state and disconnect power from the load during a loss of control power whether momentary or sustained. That is because the operating coil is not required to be continuously energized. Since the coil is not continuously energized, energy is saved and coil hum is eliminated. This makes the contactor also ideal for applications where quite operation is critical.

 

Features & Benefits:

Rated for tungsten lighting (incandescentfi lament), ballast lighting (fluorescent, HID, metal halide, mercury vapor, quartz halogen and sodium-lamp), resistive and general use loads

  • Contacts are rated 20 - 400 amps at 600 volts
  • 2 - 12 pole configurations depending on contactor size
  • Wide range of coil voltages from 24 to 600 VAC 50/60Hz
  • Full line of enclosures including NEMA 1, 3/3R, 4, 4/4X stainless steel and 12
  • Class CM includes disconnect and short-circuit protection and is UL rated as Service Entrance Equipment
