Contactor Interlocking Wiring

This diagram shows how to make Contactor Interlocking Wiring. This article is about contact interlock. Here, you will know how to operate the contact interlock. This article also includes a contact interlock circuit and connection diagram. Contact combination systems find applications in motor starters (star-delta), power control circuits, power switch circuits, etc. When an electrical circuit has two magnetic contactors, and there only one magnetic contactor needs to be turned on, at the same time then there need the interlocking system is used for this circuit.

Components used to make the Contactor Interlocking Wiring:

01. Magnetic Contactor

Magnetic Contactor
Fig 2: Magnetic Contactor
A magnetic contactor is an electrical device used for load control, automation, and protection. It is much like a magnetic reel. However, relays are generally used for low power and voltage, on the other hand, when we think of high power, these heavy-duty contractors only come to mind. It basically works by switching the load on and off. It has 3 terminals whose inputs are denoted as L1, L2, L3, and outputs as T1, T2, and T3. The circuit of the load is made in automation mode or protection using auxiliary contacts. It has two types of terminals. 1) Normally Open (NO). 2) Normally Closed (NC).

02. Push Switch

Push Switch
Fig 3: Push Switch
A Push-Button is a Simple Switch Mechanism To Control Some Aspects of a Machine a Process. Buttons Are Typically Made Out of Hard Material, Usually Plastic or Metal. The Surface is Usually Flat or Shaped to Accommodate The Human Finger or Hand, so as to be easily Depressed or Pushed. Buttons are Most Often Biased Switches, Although Many unbiased Buttons still Require a Spring to Return to their Unpushed state. The "Push-Button" Has Been Utilized in Calculators, Various Other Mechanical and Electronic Devices, Various Other Mechanical and Electronic Devices, Kitchen Appliances, Push-button telephones, Home, And Commercial.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is interlock wiring?

Electrical interlock on wire mesh. An interlock device is designed to allow a generator to provide backup power in such a way that it (a) prevents main and generator power from being connected at the same time, and (b) allows circuit diagram breakers to operate normally without interference in the event of the overload condition.

What is the purpose of interlocking?

Interlocking was a safety measure designed to prevent signals and points or switches from being changed in an improper sequence. For example, interlocking would prevent the signal from being changed to indicate a diverging route, unless the corresponding points or switches had been changed first.

What is the push-button interlocking method?

Pushbutton interlocking doesn't require the motor coils to be disengaged before the reversing direction because the normally closed forward contacts were in series with the normally open reverse contacts, or vice-versa. Pushing one button simultaneously disengages one coil while starting the other.

What is an example of interlocking?

When a bicycle is properly built, all of it is separate parts interlock. The parts of the machine have to interlock for it to work well: gears must be interlocked with each other, for example. You could also interlock fingers with another person, holding hands so that they're laced together.

What are the advantages of electrical interlocking?

Interlock devices offer several advantages for industrial safety, such as reducing human error or negligence, enhancing compliance with safety regulations and standards, improving productivity or efficiency, and preventing unauthorized or unqualified personnel from tampering with and operating the machine.
