Contender Series factory sealed control stations are designed to confine any arcing within the enclosure to prevent ignition of the surrounding atmosphere, including Group B gases (hydrogen). These control stations and pilot lights are fitted to work in settings that currently use competitor’s back bodies and covers, allowing you to benefit from Appleton features and reliability without upgrading the entire electrical infrastructure. Specific combinations of Contender Series control stations and competitor’s bodies and covers are UL Listed.
