NEMA 4 Control Box
Replaces NEMA 3R Control
The NEMA 4, Watertight pump controls are equipped with Circuit Breakers, or Motor Starter Protectors, that provides overload, short circuit protection, and locked rotor by disconnecting power to the pump if any of these conditions occur, also serves as a manual across-the-line motor control which includes a reset button to resume pumping once conditions have been corrected.
All controls have through the door rotary On-Off switch, except 3/4 & 1HP, 115 & 230 volt models which utilize an On-Off toggle switch located on bottom of enclosure.
Single phase controls also include, start and run capacitors. 3/4 and 1HP models are also equipped with a 6 foot power cord with 3 prong plug. ENCLOSURE - Fig. A & B: Door is fabricated from 16 gauge steel and the body of 14 gauge, ANSI-61 gray polyester powder finish inside and out. Continuous hinged cover with stainless steel clamps and screws to assure a watertight seal. Oil resistant neoprene gasket.
