I am using a generator as my source voltage, which produces 240VAC @ 240Hz. I was planning to use the following contactor from TE: CONTACTOR 4PST 40A 240V
In the datasheet it says this contactor's coil's activating voltage needs to be 50/60Hz. Now what happens if I feed 240VAC @ 240Hz to the activating coil?
I have asked the same question from DigiKey and TE support people, and they just said it won't work; but they did not explain WHY it won't work. So, I was hoping if someone could explain it to me why it won't work.
