Top 5 Industrial Electrical Supplies and Product List

The 5 top industrial electrical supplies will be discussed below:

• Switch

An electrical switch is a device that controls how an electrical current is started or stopped. A switch functions as a valve to control the flow of electricity. 


In the industrial sector, several types of manual and automatic switches are employed, including piano-type switches, toggle switches, push-button switches, rotary switches, jumper switches, float switches, and solid-state switches.  

• Circuit Breaker

When an electrical defect, such as a short circuit, overload, or other faults, occurs, a circuit breaker is a safety device that immediately interrupts the flow of current or breaks the circuit. The ability to manually open or close a circuit as well as automatically open a circuit is provided by a circuit breaker.


There are various types of industrial circuit breakers available, such as air circuit breakers, vacuum circuit breakers, molded case circuit breakers, miniature circuit breakers, residual current circuit breakers, and earth leakage current circuit breakers.

• Contactor

A contactor is a piece of electrical equipment that either makes or breaks the connection between two circuits. A contractor, in general, usually worked with a control signal. There isn’t a switch for manual operation, and it has no automatic function either.


Contractors with various ratings that are frequently utilized in industries are 230V Single phase contactors with 24V DC auxiliary supply, 230V Single phase contactors with 48V DC auxiliary supply, 230V Single phase contactors with 230V AC auxiliary supply, and lastly, 440V three-phase contactors with 230V AC auxiliary supply.

• Relay

A relay is a type of switching mechanism that is powered by electricity. Depending on the power supply given to it, it either breaks or forms the connection. In the industry, relays are utilized for control circuits, automation systems, and so on. 


Electromechanical relays – SPST, SPDT, DPST, DPDT, differential relays, latching relays, solid state relays (SSR), and impedance relays are all different types of relays used for industrial purposes.

• Cable Glands and Lugs

Most industrial uses for cable glands and lugs are to ensure that everything follows standards and safety regulations. When entering a panel or enclosure, cable glands are utilized to hold the cable in place. Cables can be attached to a busbar, feeder, or any other metallic conductor using lugs.
