How do I select a Vacuum Contactor/Starter?

The vacuum contactors and starters are offered in three classifications. They are NEMA rated devices up to 600 Vac, Special Purpose rated devices up to 1500 Vac and Mining rated devices rated up to 1500 Vac. Each device is tested to different standards to serve its market.
Vacuum components can be selected from the catalog, Volume 5, Tab 07 – NEMA, Special Purpose and Mining Rating.
NEMA requires that motor controllers be selected by Hp at the applied line voltage.
