Ward Leonard has been partnering with the Military for over 125 continuous years, and our mission-critical products have been installed on virtually every surface and subsurface vessel in the US Navy.
We manufacture magnetic and manual starters that adhere to Mil-DTL-2212 standards, and are designed for continuous duty and general-purpose service unless otherwise specified. Manual starters are flush mounted for panel installation, feature drip-proof enclosures for surface mounting, thermostatic bimetal overload protection , with a low-voltage release effect, where contacts remain closed on low voltage, allowing motor to restart upon return of power.
Our push button stations are designed for shipboard control applications requiring heavy duty watertight master switches, and also adhere to Mil-DTL-2212 standards. Stations are available with up to 7 elements equipped with maintained or momentary contacts, as well as indicating lights. For panel or switchboard mounting, individual N.O., N.C. or D.T. elements can be supplied.
Ward Leonard starters and push button stations are built to serve in dedicated high-shock, high vibration, high-abuse environments, and last for decades. We are uncompromising on quality control and assurance, so we manufacture each individual component on all our controls. We build them to our specs and test them to meet the DoD’s most stringent specs.
