Analog Panel Meters
PC&S’ LS and ST series of analog meters are all built to ANSI C39.1 standards. We offer a number of models that are UL and CE approved. Models are available in most standard sizes, scales and input ranges. Choose from a broad selection of AC and DC ammeters, voltmeters and frequency meters, DC process indicators, kilowatt, kilovar and power factor meters.
Choose from available options such as panel gaskets, NEMA 4, rectified movements (from 25-1000Hz), improved accuracy, colored dials, custom artwork, customer logos. DIN style meters are also available from stock at PC&S in most standard sizes and inputs. Let PC&S be your single source solution for analog panel meters.
A complete offering of battery chargers from PC&S provide manual or fully automatic, heavy duty, current limited charging of vented lead acid or nickel cadmium batteries.
Our switchmode power supply design enables us to provide chargers which are compact and light, with high power efficiency and low heat dissipation. Advanced features allow for safe, optimal charging and long battery life: multi-stage operation, low output ripple, auto boost, automatic temperature compensation and alarm outputs for signalling fault conditions. Several products have UL approval to the UL1236 standard for battery chargers in starting, lighting and ignition (SLI) applications.
Typically used in a wide range of industrial charging applications, such as standby engines, pumps and fire pumps, generators, and cyclic battery charging, PC&S battery chargers are available in ranges through 60A, DC. We also provide units for NFPA110 and Fire Pump applications.
High quality, rugged construction is built into every switch that PC&S sells. Whether your requirement is for a control switch, an instrument switch, ON-OFF switch, Multi-step switch, a changeover switch, a voltage change switch, PC&S has the right switch for you.
Switching angles of 30 degrees, 45 degrees, 60 degrees and 90 degrees with up to 12 switching positions that can be provided. Forced open contacts on the switches fulfill load break requirements up to 690 volts. Our switches feature double break, silver alloy (gold optional) contacts with various ratings and high interrupting capacity for long life and reliable operation.
Switch to PC&S and we are ready to assist you in the application. We have a large library of standard generator switching application programs to choose from to handle your specific parameters. UL and CE listed, too. Let us show you the difference quality makes!
With a traditional design which enables them to withstand the highest current ratings in the harshest working conditions, PC&S contactors allow for a very high degree of customization. These are FULL LOAD break devices.
PC&S contactors offer an excellent balance between dimensions, performance and strength whether you application demands a small, smart device, is operating on vehicles for electric traction, or providing a high power load connection in a heavy-duty, industrial application from 80A,DC to 8000A,DC. Our contactor specialists will help you configure the right part to work efficiently on your low and high voltage AC or DC circuits in a full range of DC control.
PC&S Current Sensors
We offer various kinds of compact designed sensors that are powered with single or double voltage sources. They have standard output signals, such as 0-4V, 0-5V, 0-10V, 0-20mA and 4-20mA, which can be directly used.
Our line of current and voltage sensors combine advanced sensing technologies and signal conditioning of electronic circuits. Closed loop Hall Effect current sensors use error compensation technology for high measuring accuracy in both low and high current ranges.
Digitalization and integrating communication functions make intelligent energy management easily achieved with these sensors. Your requirements for high reliability and excellent output tolerance in current and voltage sensing are covered with this extensive offering from PC&S. Typical applications include:
