Five Things to Think About Before Using Hardwired Controls Again
There are OEMs across many industries who build products that use small control systems with traditional, simple hardwired controls such as cube relays, timers and counters. Today, many of these OEMs are migrating their traditional hardwired control designs toward alternative control systems. In fact, for most OEMs, programmable relays can serve as a very cost effective controller for their products. This paper is written to help OEMs determine the "real cost" of using traditional hardwired controls by comparing it to the "real cost" of using commercially available programmable relays.
