Control Concepts Inc. founded in 1980, is the market leader in the design and manufacture of stock and custom SCR power controllers for industrial heating applications.
Power Control Application Reliability
Our single-phase and three-phase, zero-cross and phase-angle power controllers have voltage ratings ranging from 120 to 575 volts and current ratings ranging from 10 to 2000 amps. Our goal is "To Achieve Continuous Customer Satisfaction" by focusing on our four key assets:
We recognize power control applications have demanding environments and require extremely high product reliability. Product reliability translates to less down time and increased profits. When you use a Control Concepts power control system, reliability is designed in and superior customer value is created by the following:
- All power controllers are conservatively designed to operate continuously at full rated current and 55C.
- The surge current ratings are typically 20 times (or more) the rated current.
- Spring load connections are used to maintain all electrical connections and eliminate vibration failures.
- Optically coupled SCR gate drives, although more expensive than other techniques, virtually eliminate false operation due to transients.
