Appleton™ ECS Selector Switch Control Stations

Appleton

Appleton™ explosionproof, dust-ignitionproof ECS Series selector switch control stations confine the arcing to the devices within the enclosure, eliminating the need for adding external sealing fittings at each conduit entry. Push buttons and selector switches are used in conjunction with contactors and magnetic starters for remote control of motors. They provide circuit control and selection. Pilot lights provide visual indication that an electrical circuit is engaged either at a remote or local location. Toggle switches are used to connect or disconnect electrical operating lighting or other low power loads.
