ASCO Lighting Controls

Lighting Controls

Within the ASCO family of Industrial Control Products reside world recognized lighting control and specialty products including design optimized mechanically held lighting contactors that are the industry standard for quality and performance.

The current generation of ASCO ICP products reflect a 100 year tradition of applied technology and progressive design improvement. Our 918 lighting contactors employ a patented single, bi-directional solenoid operator that is mechanically held in both on and off positions. The 918 in the truest sense is mechanically held not relying on magnetic latches or impressed current to maintain contacts in the open or closed position. This inherent design feature results in "zero" control voltage and current flowing through the coil since the coil is de-energized once the main contacts are driven to the open or closed position. Therefore, the 918 will not generate the ever present AC hum and continuous power drain characteristic of electrically held designs.

Innovative variations on transfer switch technology and lighting control are found in specially engineered ASCO ICP products for by-passing commercial dimming systems.

Our line of standard and custom lighting control panels are designed to meet all lighting control application needs. ASCO 641 Lighting Control Panels are designed for automatic and manual on/off control of parking lot lighting, signs, building exterior lights, security lighting, interior safety lighting, and recreational lighting areas.
The ASCO 918 provides reliable and convenient lighting control in numerous applications, including enhanced performance for high inrush current loads such as High Intensity Discharge (HID) and metal halide lighting. The ASCO 918 mounts in the same footprint as the ASCO 917.
Easy to use and quick to install, ASCO 920 Lighting Contactors for Feeder Circuits feature all-position mounting, no derating for high inrush loads and a reliable single-solenoid operator.  They can be used with energy management systems which automatically control lighting and power circuits.
