120 V.A.C. Electromagnets

120 vac electromagnets

Round, rectangular, and bi-polar electromagnets are available in various shapes and sizes for a variety of applications. Can be used manually or in automated applications. A seperate rectifier is not required as the rectifier is built into the electromagnet. The 120 VAC is internally rectified to 110 VDC. Eliminating the need of an external rectifier can simplify installation and lessen purchase costs. The pull ratings indicated are maximum ratings on clean, flat, low carbon steel at magnetic saturation.

It should be noted that the majority of installations use DC magnets with rectifier-controllers. The recitifier-controller provides the means for quick and clean release. The 120 VAC electromagnets, due to the internal rectifier, cannot facilitate an electronic release function. An AC electromagnet that is holding a part in direct contact and is de-energized without a release pulse can have up to 20% residual magnetism. A 500 lb. capacity AC electromagnet may not release a 100lb. part cleanly, or at all, without a mechanical assist. Contact us for consultation and recommendations.

All unites are 120 VAC and are provided with a 6 ft. cord with molded 3-prong plug.
Switching can be accomplished by: Relay Contact, S.P.S.T. Switch, or 120 VAC PLC signal.
