Overview

The materials made up from AgNi possess a higher resistance to arc erosion and contact welding than that of Ag or FAg. The material is highly conductive and this property makes it ideal for intense applications even if the current is low. AgNi materials are environment-protective and have low tendency towards material transfer in DC applications

Applications

AgNi materials are mostly used in power relays, small contactors, light switches, temperature controllers, etc operating between 0.5 to 20 A. They can be used in any type of switchgear using current between 0.5 and 250 A and 24 and 600V.
