I'm glad they came up with the smart boxes. We use quite a few every year. What electrical products do you like that makes your job easier or better?

Allen Bradley motor controllers, selector switches and pushbuttons. Especially the NEMA ones.

Even in the most abusive environments, they hold up, so it keeps me from having to replace stuff all the time.

It's been awhile but, the AB 800T series push button and pilot lights were very well made products. Haven't used them in awhile not sure if they are still made well?

Pry type tension terminals. Wago...stick your micro in, insert wire, pull out screwdriver.. No need to spin your screwdriver ten rotations. Oh,and ballast disconnects. Whoever sold the code guys on those:thumbup:

Telemechanique makes good push buttons / selector switches and contactors and overloads . They are pricey . You get what you pay for .

Personally I always liked telemecanique (IEC) by square d for control parts.
For material I like Thomas and betts and Appleton malleable.
