The Alpha pendant control station is a control device for all industrial machinery. It operates as an auxiliary controller of electrical motors through a power interface, such as a contactor or PLC. Designed for heavy duty, Alpha is aimed specifically for the industrial market.
Design Alpha has an innovative design, where all graphic elements are linked to specific technical functions. Size and shape, resulting from a thorough analysis of the ergonomic features of the product, combined with the research of a graphic style suitable for a modern industrial environment, make Alpha easy to operate. Alpha has been designed to facilitate wiring and maintenance, thus reducing time for the first installation and saving on costs. The pendant station has an angle of inclination which allows the best view of all control elements, allowing the operator to work in a natural and non-tiring position. It is ideal for all environmental and working conditions due to the extremely reduced overall dimensions and the antislip lines on the enclosure.
Features Alpha is available with 2 to 13 buttons arranged on a double row to allow for pairing of opposite functions and reducing overall dimensions. The space available for the conductors is dimensioned for a 48 x 1.5 mm² or 30 x 2.5 mm² cable. All switches have terminals facing the cable clamp of the pendant station and screws on the opposite side to facilitate wiring. All electric connections use screw-type terminals. The emergency stop mushroom pushbutton complies with the EN 418 standard and it is equipped with positive opening NC switches.
Materials Materials and components are wear resistant and protect the equipment against water and dust. Alpha can be customised with labels and colours according to the customer’s requirements.
