AutomationDirect adds Manual Motor Controllers/Disconnects
Bryant’s controllers feature thermoset bodies, to provide high resistance to electrical arc tracking, and AC-rated silver alloy contacts for excellent conductivity and extended life. The compact devices are available in NEMA 1, 3/3R and 4X enclosures; each controller has lockout/tag out capability.
Bryant Toggle AC manual motor controllers feature quick-make/slow break operation to provide reliability and long life. Each toggle switch controller has a 10,000 amp high-fault short circuit withstand rating, excellent dimensional stability and superior dielectric strength. Optional NEMA 1 enclosures without switches, as well as side guards for close wall applications and finger-safe environments, are also available.
Single-phase and three-phase toggle controllers are available in 30, 40 and 60 Amp sizes, up to 600 VAC, and 2-pole and 3-pole configurations. Designed with a clamping plate for back or side wiring, toggle switch type controllers start at $21.50.
Available enclosed toggle AC manual motor controllers feature NEMA 1 or NEMA 3R enclosures. NEMA 1 metal enclosed switch controllers, ideal for use in indoor environments, are designed with ½” and ¾”-inch NPT wiring conduit knockouts. The all-aluminum cover and base are designed with top, bottom or back wire entry points; the base is pre-drilled for rear surface mounting. NEMA 1 enclosed toggle controller prices start at $27.50.
NEMA 3R rain-tight enclosed toggle controllers are available in either all-aluminum or chemical and impact resistant thermoplastic enclosures, making them ideal for outdoor applications. The all-aluminum enclosure, with pre-drilled base for rear surface mounting, is designed with ½” NPT wiring knockouts for 30 Amp models; 60 Amp models feature ¾” and 1” conduit knockouts. NEMA 3R enclosed toggle controller prices start at $40.
NEMA 4X enclosed rotary AC manual motor controllers, ideal for heavy wash down and corrosive environments, feature impact and chemical resistant thermoplastic enclosure bodies. An over-center rotary switching mechanism ensures reliable operation and allows positioning of up to two N.O. / N.C. auxiliary contacts. NEMA 4X enclosed rotary controllers start at $99.
