Re: contactor voltage

The coil of the contactor is run by a separate voltage from the pack
voltage. They are typically 12 volts. In my case I use a 48V coil.

Subject: contactor voltage

is the contactor in an electric vehicle seeing full pack voltage or is it
running off of seperate 12 volt power?
