The unit is also available with lamp indication for feedback confirmation or actuator/valve position. Engineers, manufacturers, technical and industrial buyers can configure the CB Series Control Box switch function and light indicators to suit their needs. The company has an online Configurator that is available to design and specify the CB Series Control Box options, providing an image of the box assembly and pricing.
