Electrical Contactor System

CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION

This application claims the benefit of Chinese Patent Application No. 201711394216.0 filed on Dec. 21, 2017 in the China National Intellectual Property Administration, the whole disclosure of which is incorporated herein by reference.

Technical Field

The present disclosure relates to an electrical contact system, and more particularly to an electrical contact system having an arc quenching device.

Background Art

An electrical contact in a switch or controller electrical equipment will have a phenomenon of discharging and thus generate an arc while the electrical contacts are turned from on to off. The generated arc will delay the breaking of the circuit, and even bum the electrical contacts, thereby causing the electrical contacts to fuse. In more severe cases, the switch will bum and explode. Therefore, an arc quenching device needs to be designed to achieve efficient and reliable arc quenching.

In the related art, a common switch device, such as a high-voltage direct current relay, usually uses sealed inflated air and an additional magnetic field to laterally elongate a metal phase arc, and thus the arc is rapidly cooled, recombined and deionized in an arc quenching medium, which is good in arc quenching, but quite complicated regarding the manufacturing process, resulting in higher costs. There is another method for quenching arc, in which, a strong magnetic field in the air medium is used. Since the arc may be strongly ionized in the air medium, this kind of method is not that ideal in quenching arc, and is easy to cause electrical contacts to fuse, and requires sufficient internal space, thereby resulting in that the switching device cannot be miniaturized.
