Now in the third generation of family ownership E Preston Electrical continues to grow and build on traditional values.

“We work hard for our customers to get the best products at the best prices while providing exceptional customer service.  We always do what we say we will, even if that is just a call back,” says Mark Preston, MD.

This is a principle that was rooted in the business from its inception over 30 years ago by founder, and grandfather to the current directors, Ernest Preston.

Although there is still a great emphasis on these traditional values the company has embraced new technology in all of its business operations and now launches a new digital venture.  The new interactive e-shop eprestononline.co.uk is aimed at increasing accessibility to existing and new customers.

“We have access to the latest technology from our suppliers,” says Matthew Preston, sales director. “We want to make dealing with E Preston as easy as possible.  We will continue to visit new and existing customers, and speak to them on the telephone, but with eprestononline we can offer them access to our company whenever they want.”

Click AwayThe new eShop will allow customers to log in to their own portal to view orders, print off documents such as acknowledgements and invoices, and allows them to place repeat orders.  Data sheets and supplier catalogues will also be readily available.

The company believes it maintains its position as a traditional company – or more appropriately, a modern company with traditional values.

Schurter Type MCS16 Metal Line Switch

Schurter Logo1.jpg

Metal Line Switch with Excellent Price / Performance Ratio
• Very low mounting depth
• High ingress protection IP67
• Resistant against vandalism
• Long lifetime

In response to customer requests for switches with a smaller diameter and a particularly low mounting depth, Schurter extends its successful MCS series of short-travel switches with a durable, robust 16 mm variant.

The MCS16 is an extension of the successful MCS switch series (MCS19, MCS30). It is recommended as the first choice wherever low mounting depth and particularly high robustness are required.

Zinc-die-cast or stainless steel actuator
The customer can choose between an actuator made of zinc-die-cast or stainless steel. The stainless steel version offers the additional option of individual laser marking. The switch housing is always made of zinc-die-cast.

Point illumination red and green
Both the zinc-die-cast and the stainless steel actuator are also available with point illumination if optical feedback from the switch is required. The customer can choose between red and green illumination, whereby both colors are already installed. Further colors can be realized on request.

Robust design with IP67 / IK06
Same as the larger variants of the MCS series, the new MCS16 has an IP protection rating of IP67 and an impact resistance of IK06. The MCS16 can therefore be used in a wide range of industrial applications or in applications under harsh environmental conditions. In addition, the robust housing front offers optimum protection against vandalism.

Versatile terminal connection options
The MCS16 offers a variety of terminal connection options. Classic pins for PCB mounting are available as well as pins with a soldering aid for direct connection of a wire. All point-illuminated versions are supplied with this option. Last but not least, there is also a terminal clamp available as optional accessory for fast and easy screw connection.

Hylec Terminal Blocks for Specialist Applications

Broad range of specialist terminal blocks for OEM consumer and industrial/commercial ovens, cookers, washing machines, driers, dishwashers

Finding the right terminal blocks for specialist applications operating at high temperatures can present a challenge for designers, especially those designing the latest models of consumer and commercial/industrial ovens, including the large range cookers that have become so popular in recent years. A specialist range of products developed specifically for commercial and domestic appliances that operate at high heat is now available at Hylec-APL, the specialist supplier of electrical components and enclosures.

Screw to tab terminal block models with between 2 and 7 poles are available in the FV Series, which operates at temperatures from – 5degC to +150degC. Voltage is 450V, and current between 25A and 41A depending model. There are devices in the FV Series designed to suit ceramic hobs, electric hobs, ovens and gas hobs, motors and pumps, as well as general appliances.

The PA Family of terminal blocks with integrated cable clamps includes Series PA84 that offers an earth bracket version and a fuse holder version, both available with or without screws. Rated at 450V, 16A, working temperature ranges from -5degC to +110degC. These models suit small appliances for the domestic market, as well as professional appliances. For gas hobs, PA299 and PA299C are snap-in fixing on chassis terminal blocks with integrated cable clamps, earth brackets and RF filter and can withstand working temperatures of +125degC.

Terminal boxes for gas hobs, electric hobs, ovens and industrial applications are available in multiple styles including Series PA309 with integrated cable clamp and earth bracket for gas hobs, and Series PA233SN with an integrated cable clamp and grounding plate for electric hobs and ovens. The devices are IP30 rated and VDE approved.
