    Hylec-APL Introduces Quick Mounting Control Stations

    Leading UK component manufacture and supply specialist Hylec-APL, has launched a new series of control stations to complement its existing range of connectors, terminal blocks and junction boxes. Manufactured and assembled by Hylec-APL company DE Controls, the new registered design control stations combine tough IP67 enclosures with hard wearing push button and selector switches. Most items in the large range can be fitted with the unique snap-on brackets for quick and easy wall, chassis and DIN rail mounting.

    This registered design range of control stations is available exclusively from Hylec-APL and depending on product, offers up to IP67 protection, making them suitable for both outdoor domestic use and industrial applications where they may be subjected to wash-down environments. They have up to 5mm wall thickness which provides enough strength and protection to act as a substitute for metal enclosures in many situations.

    The range contains a significant selection of push button and selector switch types from the latest EN418 EMERGENCY STOP units with twist or key operated release options to large dome top palm/foot operated switch stations. Red and green flush-head buttons units and standard/key selector switches are also included with many products also available in illuminated option. Many variations are possible pre-assembled to ensure that the control station meets each application’s operational and safety requirements and all switches are supplied with 1x N/O and 1xN/C contact block as standard.

    With the exception of the Palm/Foot switch the control stations can also benefit from a unique and innovative time-saving snap-on bracket mounting feature. The brackets are available in DIN rail or chassis / wall mounting options and, because they are snap-on, do not compromise the IP rating of the Enclosure. Enclosures also incorporate vertical PCB mounting support slots as well as horizontal self tapping screw supports. They are delivered complete with 2 x M20 threaded cable gland entry.

    Available in a range of flame retardant materials, including polycarbonate, each control station can be specified as a compact or deep base version. All products comply fully with ROHS and REACH standards.
