Selection -- Accessories and Parts -- Documentation -- Drawings

Definite purpose contactors and starters are intended to be used in the HVAC markets where low cost is the top priority and the duty cycle is low.  These contactors are not designed to be turned on and off several times a minute.  They have a lower electrical life than both NEMA and IEC contactors.
