870 Series Contactor Control Panel

The 870 Series Contactor Temperature Control panel is ON/OFF process temperature control and is recommended for applications that do not demand precise temperature control. Systems with two or more heating stages utilize an electronic sequencer (step controller) driven by a proportional output temperature controller to minimize the amount of load cycling while providing good temperature control. The panel is completely assembled, pre-wired, tested, and ready for trouble free installation and operation. Designed for use in industrial environments and outdoor installations.
