If yes, What would be the voltage and amperage for DC to operate the 120 VAC contactor? And, Can I connect two contactors in parallel, and actuate both using DC ? I need it for a project, where I can't use AC and have to work with existing 120VAC Contactors.
My project involves the use of limit switches, which is why I was using a dc power supply. And the output from the limit switches actuate the contactor that run lines to the AC motor. Is is safe to run AC through limit switches. The limit switches would be in close proximity with the user. If yes, then I do not need any conversion. And I can run the entire circuit on AC alone.
