We propose a new electric contact device that greatly improves arc discharge characteristics. Electric contact functions are divided into an energizing operation and a switching operation. A capacitor is connected in series to a contact for switching contact. Using two conventional relay contacts, no arc operation is confirmed for a 42 V/3 A break operation. Contact resistances are measured over many operations, and the surfaces of electrodes are observed. A chip capacitor is arranged at one side of the contact electrodes of a twin relay, confirming the possibility of miniaturization.
