control pendants & switches
To complement the other items in this range, we stock limit switches in plastic and metal housings,
sounders/horns, special cable glands for flat cable, isolators, and STOP stations.
Our control pendants are primarily used on cranes and hoists, but also on any machine with simple control
requirements where the operator station needs to be semi-portable. Other common applications are for tail-
lifts on trucks, small hydraulic machines, and all types of workshop machinery.
For crane and hoist applications, we keep common configurations in stock at excellent prices.
