HOMA Bar mounted contactors: Disconnector
For more than 60 years, HOMA has been manufacturing disconnectors for railway technology, foundries and steel works, solar and wind turbines, starters, battery test equipment, ripple control systems, rolling and crane systems.
HOMA is a system supplier for renowned manufacturers. In addition to the production of disconnectors, HOMA is able to remove individual tasks for customers. For this purpose, HOMA develops, manufactures and installs contract disconnectors and complete control cabinets, including power electronics.
HOMA offers disconnectors in different variations. Also in the range: Special accessories to improve the function of large contactors in the context of overcurrent shutdown.
HOMA manufactures motor driven Disconnectors (up to 3,6kV) in a compact design, which are distinguished by the high number of possible switching cycles (>1.000.000). Disconnectors show a visible separation between voltage-carrying and activated system sections. The visible separation provides the safety during maintenance work that the specific system section is no longer carrying any voltage. Disconnectors are used to disconnect the network according to standards i.e. to perform a busbar change without disruption or to disconnect utilities. HOMA Disconnectors are type tested for rated lightning impulse withstand voltage up to 40kV and across the separation of up to 46kV.
HOMA Bar mounted Contactors
In HOMA Bar mounted Contactors current-carrying components are organized on the basis of a main frame construction. All required modules are arranged on top of a single frame (bar), for example: Magnet system, Terminal plate for power circuit, Switch locking system and Movable contacts. The two examples below (G500 / HAT-2W) illustrate the construction.
For over 60 years
HOMA switches are being built into different applications for more than 60 years and have been supplied to more than 100 countries. Due to the worldwide experience of HOMA, many national and international norms can be fullfield and have conducted a vast number of type tests for our products. We equip our switches with coils that can be operated worldwide with 60V to 480V AC/DC. The worldwide distribution network ensures minimal downtimes in case of a break down. HOMA is known for short delivery times and due to its modular design, switches can be assembled and delivered within 24 hours.
Air-break contactors and combinations of switches to deal with normal to complicated switching activities for all types of electrical loads.
Sliding contacts, air-break contactors and air- or water-cooled high current switches for galvanic interruption of circuits without a control current for technical or safety reasons.
Different types of commutators to select different sources or for an alternative supply of the electrical load circuit.
Commutators and pole-reversal contactor including associated control systems, reversing contactors etc. for process-related reversion of the electrical current or rotational direction; braking contactors for switchoff for drives that simultaneously trigger dynamic braking systems.
Starting contactor / rotor-short circuit contactor, as well as starting coupling contactor / cascade coupling contactor for large machinery in association with subsynchronous static converter systems cascade; capacitor contactors for balancing or compensating inductive electrical loads. Starting, damping and discharge resistors.
HOMA Over-current sensor
For expanding the function of large Contactors for over-current Deactivation
The device enables the monitoring of up to three phase currents. If one of the thresholds set via the jumper is exceeded, the coil current (field current) of the large contactor is interrupted and, thus, deactivated, in the event of over-current. Only one common threshold can be set for the three sensors. Both AC and DC currents can be monitored. In the case of DC currents, the triggering does not depend on the current direction. The system can also be utilised to monitor alternating current systems. The three sensors can then be assigned to each phase.
The sensors themselves must be connected directly to the busbars. They can be connected via screws or cable ties (black). The current measuring functions by measuring the field strength H that surrounds every live conductor. Due to the fact that the field strength depends on the distance of the measuring point from the conductor, the sensors must be installed in accordance with the instructions.
The sensors are delivered with a 1 m long connection cable as standard and connected to the control unit belonging to the system. Neither connection work nor adjustments need to be carried out on the sensors.
