Chicken Switch Model WL-01/WL-01R

chicken switch model WL-01

Model WL-01 and WL-01R are designed to work uniquely with Siemens WLS low voltage circuit breakers.

A spring-loaded alignment fixture fits inside the recessed section of the breaker face that surrounds the operating button to assure that the WL-01 installs easily and accurately. Two lever-operated neodymium magnets hold the actuator firmly in place.

The WL-01R is virtually the same device except for the mounting method of the actuator. The WL-01R utilizes retention pins that lock into the side of the Siemens WLS breaker.

The WL-01/WL-01R is constructed with quality components. Many of which are produced by MarTek using state-of-the-art CNC equipment. Two motor-driven linear actuators are utilized to operate the trip and close buttons on the breaker. This provides smooth operation and does not “slam” the buttons. Like all of our products, the control system is micro-controller based for accurate positioning and protection of the linear actuators.

When not in use, the WL-01 actuator and all its accessories are stored in the included heavy duty Pelican carrying case.

The standard WL-01 ships with the Chicken Switch actuator, the hand-held controller, 30-foot cable, carrying case, instruction manual, and 16 AA batteries. Optional 50-foot cable available on all MarkTek wired devices.
