Volt-Free Contact, also known as Dry Contact, is an essential component in electrical systems that transmit signals without electrical current. Despite its name, it does not imply a complete absence of voltage. Instead, it refers to a contact electrically isolated from the circuit it controls. 

Volt-Free Contacts are commonly employed in a wide range of applications, including industrial control systems, commercial setups, and home automation. Their primary advantage lies in their ability to enable safe and secure control operations without the risk of electrical shock. With volt-free contacts, the control circuit can be completely isolated from the power source, thereby ensuring enhanced safety for operators and minimizing the potential for accidents. 

Catron AI as a Volt-free contact 

A wireless switch interface device, such as Catron AI, provides an intelligent solution for controlling devices remotely. It can be easily connected to your existing switch, enhancing its functionality and enabling remote control capabilities. 

It can also be used as a volt-free contact by connecting it to a magnetic switch. 

A magnetic switch, commonly known as a reed switch, is typically enclosed in a plastic shell. These switches can be affixed to doors, windows, or drawers to detect whether they are open or closed. By connecting a magnetic contact switch to Catron AI, you can utilize it as a volt-free contact, which means it can detect the status of the magnetic switch and provide corresponding control signals or trigger actions based on that information. 

Take, for example, you can receive notifications when a door or window is opened or closed, activate or deactivate devices based on the switch status, or include the magnetic switch in your overall smart ecosystem for enhanced security and convenience. 

Here are some of the advantages of using a Switch interface as a VFC: 

  • They are electrically isolated, so there is no risk of electrical shock. 
  • They are very reliable and have a long lifespan. 

To sum it up  

Catron AI serves as a versatile wireless switch interface device that can not only enhance your existing switches but also be utilized as a volt-free contact by connecting it to a magnetic switch, enabling intelligent control and automation of various devices and scenarios.  

It is a part of the Lumos Controls Ecosystem with controllers, sensors, switches, modules, drivers, gateways, analytical dashboards, and even more.
