Are DC coils available for the 8903 type L contactors?

Issue:     
Are DC coils available for the 8903 type L contactors?  

Product Line:
8903 type L lighting contactors

Environment:
Products sold and used in the United States

Resolution:
Yes, they are. Use Form Y48 to substitute a DC coil for the AC coil. There is a 7 pole maximum (one pole is required to be used for switching the economizing resistor). A DC coil cannot be field modified from AC. For use on electrically held devices (open or enclosed) only.
