Penna. manufacturer launches new line of pilot devices
c3controls, the Beaver, Pa., manufacturer of industrial control products, is launching an upgraded line of IEC Pilot Devices, with the new Series GT directly replacing the 22mm IEC Pilot Devices – Series B products. The c3controls IEC pilot device line features pilot lights, push buttons, selector switches, and E-Stops, with a wide range of variations and options available within each product group.
“All new Series GT products are completely cross-compatible with the discontinued Series B products, all while keeping the same mounting and assembly dimensions and specifications, as well as part numbers and list prices,” the company added in an email to Electrical Apparatus January 19.
The design enhancements include a “more robust operator bracket, a new 4X chrome-plated bezel option, modernized aesthetics, increased color vibrancy on push button caps, and reinforced internal components on all selector switches.”
The company’s pilot devices are used in HVAC, steel mills, water/wastewater, packaging, switchgear, burners and boilers, metal fabrication, amusement rides, ski lifts, and mostly any other equipment or machine that is controlled electrically, it says.
“We are excited to introduce the new IEC pilot devices as they are a true blend of c3controls founder Glenn Taylor’s original mission to provide premium performance without the premium price and current CEO Geoff Taylor’s mission to be the best electrical controls business on the planet,” said Aaron Veness, c3 product engineer. “We listened to feedback from our customers, and made both aesthetic and performance enhancements that provide machine builders and end users world class products built with the ultimate in craftsmanship.”
