I bought a replacement RMC-1000 remote control package with limit switches
for my HDX-589 last June. Both limit switches are Allen-Bradley Cat. No.
802T-AP Ser. J. The original switches were different on my 1994 tower.
This seems to be the general type of switch:
I installed the package, including the big control relay box, new limit
switches, both of which came prewired (though with a wiring error on one
switch), and a replacement motor (which also had a wiring error) myself. My
lightning strike last April was the reason for the replacement.
You might ask UST for a price on replacement switches, and I bet they would
give you the switch details.
Since US Tower rarely divulges such information, can anyone who has the
MCL-100 control box and limiting switches tell me who manufactures the
switches and their part numbers? I seem to have a faulty upper limit switch
that will need replacing.
An electrician tried to realign it and get it working but could not do so. I
can move the tower down but not up, except when the electrician bypasses the
upper switch with a jumper in the control box.
I have an HDX-555 and will keep it at 50-ft and not move it again until I
can secure a replacement for the upper switch. I cannot read the info on my
switches because the labeling is too marred.
Anyone out there with sharp eyes?
