Control Systems

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 U.S. Navy.

Ward Leonard’s control products are found on every ship in the modern U.S. Navy, including the LCS, DDG-51 and the new CVN-78 aircraft carrier (Gerald Ford Class). They’re also a staple of high-intensity industries, from Arctic oil fields to South American mining.

Our motor controllers, motor starters and motor drives are designed and tested to meet the Navy’s stringent requirements of shock, vibration EMI, and temperature. These ruggedized controls are ready for heavy duty — from our comprehensive catalog of Ward Leonard or General Electric-style devices, our innovative power electronics, custom designs and builds, or commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) products.

Ward Leonard is a recognized leader in fully integrated systems approach to solid-state relays and communication devices. These state-of-the art products increase monitoring capability and performance while decreasing controller size and weight. We support Modbus, Profibus, and Ethernet protocols on multiple products.
