Lighting contactors from Eaton's electrical business are designed to provide a safe, convenient means for local or remote switching of tungsten (incandescent filament) or ballast (fluorescent and mercury arc) lamp loads. They are also suitable for other loads such as low pressure and high-pressure sodium lamp loads and other non-motor (resistive) loads. They are not recommended for most sign flashing loads. These lighting contactors are designed to withstand the large initial inrush currents of tungsten lamp loads without contact welding. They are fully rated and do not require derating.
