THE new NHP/TER ‘Charlie’ PF39 series of pendant control stations from NHP Electrical Engineering are an innovative and dynamic new range of devices for the auxiliary control of electrical motors through a power interface such as a contactor or PLC.
The stations are supplied complete with two IP65 sealed operators and a choice of one or two impulse (speed) contacts. Alternatively they can be supplied with an additional third operator incorporating a ‘twist to reset’ 38mm mushroom head emergency stop.
These new generation pendants incorporate an ergonomically designed pistol grip styled handle for ease of operation by a single hand and a two piece double insulated thermoplastic body of IP65 standard.
Being specifically designed for medium to heavy duty lifting applications the Charlie range combines light weight and durable construction ensuring a long and reliable service life in the most arduous environments.
Another feature of the range is the hinged flip-up cover. The body is secured in place by a large threaded ring, which couples both the hinged lower and upper covers.
The fixing ring is simply unscrewed to provide easy access to internal components providing significant reductions in maintenance and installation times by doing away with the need for additional tools and time wasting screw fasteners.
The Charlie pendant stations can be customised to suit particular application requirements. With the addition of signal lamps, rotary switches and various contact arrangements, the range can be specially tailored to suit individual requirements.
Continuing with the use of high quality materials, all symbols and lettering are made of a new hard wearing anti-reflective polycarbonate, which ensures clear identification and is resilient against harmful chemicals and materials which contribute to premature wear.
