Some opinions on contactors please jayb 3/26/2009
I have attached an image of a fan colis contactor that I have recently taken, as you can see some areas are reaching a tmep of over 65.c. I have apoken to the Manufacturer (Lovata) and they ahve said that a temp of upto 70 is fine. What would you advise that I do?

Many thanks
Jay

I recommend checking current load, ambient temperature also if possible visually check contact surface (if possible). I would say from past experience that what you are seeing is hotter than what it shows. Focus is an important part of determining heating and as I observe your IR picture it seems a little out of focus
