BUDGET MODELS. Models 3A
(at left, 120V, 50/60 Hz) and SS-2 (at right, 120V, 60 Hz) are our low-cost, bench-top units.
These feature a light-weight, cylindrical, steel housing (3.75"
x 3.5") with polyurethane feet and an attractive gray solvent-resistant
epoxy coating. Each control has a 36" 3-wire power cord with
a molded-on plug (in) and a 12" 3-wire cord with a molded-on output receptacle. Both controls
have a pilot lamp which glows continuously (SS-2) or cycles
on and off (Models 3A & 4A & 4A-CE) indicating when power
is being delivered to the appliance. Each unit is fused: 4-amp
fuse (3AG, 1.25" x .25") for Models SS-2 and 4A; 8-amp
fuse for Model 3A (ABC or 3AG, 1.25" x .25").
Actual weight is about one pound for each model.
CAST ALUMINUM CASE MODELS have a satin finish stainless steel face plate
(both EB and SS-4 types). The case has an attractive
gray baked-on finish, with a fuseholder mounted on one side. The
face plate has a receptacle, dial plate and one or two pilot lamps.
The EB type controls have two pilot lampsone is on all
the time, indicating that the knob is not in the "off" position,
while the other lamp cycles on and off showing when power is being delivered
to the applicance. The above features are common to all of the
models listed below.
Models EB-1C (at right) and SS-4 (above
left) both have a 36" 3-wire power cord with a molded-on plug and
polyurethane rubber feet. Model EB-1C has an 8-amp
fuse (ABC or 3AG), Model SS-4 a 4-amp fuse (3AG).
Models EB-1 and SS-4E are
the same as Models EB-1C and SS-4 above, but have
no power cord. These models were designed for permanent wall mounting
on a part of the lab bench or in a fume hood (very popular in fume hoods).
To mount the unit, the face plate must be removed, the case mounted
to the wall surface and then it's hard-wired from behind or through
the bottom of the case.
Models EB-1CR and SS-4R are the same as
Models EB-1C and SS-4 except a special stainless steel
plate has been fastened to the back side of the case for very easy
wall mount without dissasembly. In some labs where controls
have unwanted "mobility", installing these models with tamper-proof
screws reduces that mobility.
Models SS-4F and EB-1F
are flush-mount units designed especially for mounting to fume hoods
or on any vertical panel (16 ga steel up to 0.75" thick panels).Please specify panel thickness.
The unit can be blind mounted through the panel hole, and is hard-wired
with 14 ga wire. EB-1F is rated at 1200 watts, SS-4F
at 600 watts. The face plate of both Models SS-4F and EB-1F
controls is mounted to a special jumbo handy box with welded-on brackets
(see fig.). Detailed installation instructions are available.
Model SS-4H is a flush-mount 1000w solid state control. It mounts
in a standard 2 gang electrical box for use in fume hood.All components
are safety approved but the unit
itself has no certification.SS-4H should only be used as a component part of
a fume hood or panel that will be safety certified as a complete assembly.
Model SS-4P has the same controls
as the SS-4F, flush mount, but is two separate controls mounted
in a doublesided polished aluminum pedestal box that mounts permanently
to the bench top. These controls are perfect for new construction or
renevating existing labs.
