ASI custom pendant stations are as easy as 1-2-3. When you need a customized pendant station to suit your needs, ASI has the solution. First, select the type of pendant station kit needed for your application. Each kit includes a yellow housing, cable support, gasket, mounting adapters, mechanical interlock, and screws. Second, select which push button operators and indicators. Third, select the contact blocks needed for your application. Whether you need a 2-button pendant station, 3 button pendant station, single row pendant station with 5-12 holes or double crane pendant station with 4 to 14 holes.
Selecting the pendant station housing follows knowing the application.
- The P02K and P03K are 2 and 3 hole pendant station kits are ideal for boat lifts and other industrial applications.
- The PL Series is a 5 to 12 position single row pendant station, used in crane and hoist applications.
- The PLB Series is a 4 to 14 position double row pendant station, suitable for crane and hoist applications.
- The TLP Series are compact size control stations with guarded push button holes for 1 to 5 push buttons or indicators.
Selecting which operators are needed for your application depends upon what you are trying to accomplish. ASI offers solid and laser engraved push button switches, emergency push buttons, 2 and 3 position selector switches and a tubular key lock. The push buttons with symbols provide a universal instruction such as START, STOP, UP, DOWN, FORWARD, REVERSE, LEFT, or RIGHT and whether the push button is for a single speed or double speed application. They also have a neoprene boot for protection from debris and liquids for applications near water or in an industrial environment.
Matching up the contact blocks with the actuators is pretty straight forward, decide if you will need a normally open or normally closed contact. Then select either a spring clamp or screw clamp wire termination. In the case of the double speed push buttons, select the PL004010 contact element with two connected Normally Open contact blocks. If using an LED indicator light, select a LED lamp holder with the same voltage as your application. ASI offers 12 volt, 24 volt, 48 volt, 110 volt, 220 volt. The TLP compact control station uses different sized lamp holders than the P02K, P03K, PL and PLB series. BA9s lampholders are also available.
