Indentify control boxes in old panel

4 posts in this topic

I'm trying to identify the two black boxes in this motor control panel. This is specfically controling a Strippit machine. There are two of the boxes stacked on top of each other. Each has two wire coming out,  a 120 volt from a relay and the other goes to neutral.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

My guess for RCAS is Resistive Capacitive Arc Snubber - used to dissipate coil collapsing magnetic field energy to extend life of contacts.

That makes sense.We found a wiring schematic after I posted this and they are paralleled with with solenoids that operate the up and down respectively. Looking up Resistive Capacitive Arc Snubber looks like they are exactly it.  Now I just need to calculate replacements for them and find them.

Thank you so much, that was a huge help getting the actual name of them.
