Charlie Pendant Station is a control device for all industrial machinery. It operates as an auxiliary controller of electrical motors through a power interface, such as a contactor or PLC. Designed for heavy duty, Charlie is aimed specifically for the industrial market.
The look of Charlie has been devised by industrial designers who have linked all the graphic elements to specific technical functions. The project has been developed on the basis of specifications such as technicism, anthropomorphism, futurism and ergonomics to obtain a product whose connotation adds to its uniqueness. The small size of the equipment facilitates its use in all environmental and working conditions, while the shape, resulting from the research of a graphic style suitable for a modern industrial environment, makes Charlie very handy.
A threaded ring is used to secure the enclosure and cover, which also allows easy access to the internal components without any need for tools or screws. The switches are assembled inside the pendant station without the need for screws and they all have terminals facing the cable clamp of the pendant station and screws on the opposite side to facilitate wiring. All electric connections use screw-type terminals.
The emergency STOP mushroom pushbutton complies with the EN 418 standard and is equipped with positive opening NC switches. Materials and components are wear resistant and protect the equipment against water and dust. Charlie can be customised with labels and colours according to the customer’s requirements.
