SE Controls

Very professional and timely sales and technical support. Good delivery timeline. NI 24 40 chain motors - highly reccomended, for being fully customizable on site and very good ratio stroke - push force To be improved: for NI 24 40 series - ease the acces to the conectivity socket (very difficult to get at, when programming adjustments are needed after the motor has been installed).


SE Controls

We have been working closely with SE Controls - Smoke ventilation systems for quite some time now and have found the team incredibly helpful throughout the various projects we have completed. Their equipment is well manufactured and we have found to be extremely reliable.
