GIGAVAC products are hermetically sealed—airtight and waterproof—so there is no corrosion. Parts are designed and manufactured for extreme environments (humidity, submersion, dust, high temperature, heavy shock and vibration). GIGAVAC construction allows for very long life cycles, and low warranty and service costs.

Waytek carries GIGAVAC’s most popular parts including a series of chassis mount contactors up to 600A, and 300A and 500A Battery Disconnects. Each heavy-duty contactor is ceramic to metal brazed, gas filled hermetically in a sealed chamber to protect key components, exceeds IP69K standards, and is temperature tested to 200 degrees Celsius.

“We have many customers that specialize in heavy-duty commercial, military, mining, agricultural and construction equipment. Being able to provide them with airtight and waterproof equipment allows Waytek customers to source from fewer suppliers,” said Jim Keister, marketing manager at Waytek, Inc.
