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:
/tab2.html .

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?
