Modern battery packs for high power applications such as battery powered fork lifts, battery energy storage, and aerospace (eVTOL) require robust contactors to maintain safe operation. These packs often use lithium ion or lead acid batteries, which have become increasingly capable as technology has improved. With this increased capability, comes greater operating currents, fault currents, and voltage isolation requirements, all of which drive the need for improved contactor performance.
