    STARTERS AND PUSH BUTTON STATIONS


    Fairbanks Morse Defense and Ward Leonard magnetic and manual starters adhere to MIL-DTL-2212 standards and are designed for continuous duty and general-purpose service unless otherwise specified.

    Manual Starters

    • controllers-manual-starters

      Built to be reliable, our starters are designed for continuous duty and general-purpose service to provide decades of use.

      Manual starters are flush mounted for panel installation, feature drip-proof enclosures for surface mounting, thermostatic bimetal overload protection, with a low-voltage release effect, where contacts remain closed on low voltage, allowing motor to restart upon return of power.

      Our starters are built to serve in dedicated high-shock, high vibration, high-abuse environments, and last for decades. We are uncompromising on quality control and assurance, so we manufacture each individual component on all our controls. We build and test them to meet the DoD’s most stringent specs.
