Our state-of-the-art facility manufactures both standard and custom control panels per UL508A or UL698A standards. Our panels use only high-quality Danfoss/Vacon variable frequency drives (VFDs) and range in size from 5 HP to 1,300 HP and beyond.

We offer a full array of built-in features including filtration, programmable logic controllers (PLC), touchscreen operation interface, telemetry options and multiple communication protocols.

We specialize in solutions for Industrial, Wastewater and Water Product applications including agricultural, irrigation, food and beverage, industrial and commercial. Mitchell’s Controls provides full panel customization, system testing, technical assistance, product training, and follow-up support.

A full voltage starter controls a pump motor with one contactor that closes the power circuit to turn the motor on and opens to turn the motor off. Across-the-Line Starters offer a lower investment cost for applications requiring a disconnecting means, starting circuitry, and motor overload protection.

FEATURES

  • NEMA 3R Rated
  • Full speed operation
  • Use with any motor
  • Low maintenance
  • Simple operation

Please contact your local Mitchell Lewis & Staver sales representative to review your application requirements. Whether it is a standard off-the-shelf product or a customized control panel, we want to make sure that you receive the right product for your application.
