- All A & B series controls have fusing of controlled legs as standard.
- All A, B, & C Series controls have isolated 4-20mA command signal as standard. Other input signals are available. See MAP, MAI series of interface cards.
- All Avatar Power Controls to 600 Amps have isolated & grounded chassis and SCR blocks.
- *4 wire 3 Phase systems should use either A6Z, 3CP or 3 single phase controls.
