Industrial automation is the use of various control systems to operate and monitor machinery in a production environment. This type of automation helps businesses maintain consistent quality, streamline processes, reduce costs and improve safety. Core components within industrial automation include auxiliary contactors for controlling current flow, as well as electrical components such as relays and circuit breakers for managing power distribution.
Auxiliary contactors are devices used to start or stop a motor or other load in an industrial system. They are usually used in combination with another main device, like a starter or contactor, that can provide greater protection from short circuits and overloads while still allowing the auxiliaries to perform their task efficiently. Auxiliary contactors have several benefits over traditional methods of control; they offer better reliability and precision while being more cost effective.
