Order Pre-Assembled or Build it yourself from Stock

Sprecher + Schuh offers a broad selection of pre-assembled or "build-from-stock" starters housed in a high impact, non-metallic, cUL approved, Type 1, 12, 4/4X enclosure. Built for convenience, space savings and economy, the KWIKstarter line is efficiently designed to use stock CA7/CAU7 contactors and advanced CEP7 solid state or CT7N thermal overloads. Contactor and overload are either prewired and pre-mounted onto the enclosure's built-in DIN-rail or may be ordered as separate components. Ample knockouts and open terminals guarantee quick, no fuss wiring.
