I have a residence in So. Cal. with a United Elkevator Co. elevator, built in 1966. The controller uses octal base (round 8-pin) relays, some made by Potter & Brumfield, some labeled UECO. Anyone have any clue where I might find a supply of these obsolete relays?

There are numerous Potter & Brumfield distributors that can probably help you find the relays you need. Try searching the internet for: Potter Brumfield relay. You should even find vendors advertising hard to find relays.

Try Master Electronic Controls on Olympic in Santa Monica. If they don't have it, chances are that they can get you an equivalent. I go there to get Guardian Relay parts for old Montgomery jobs. Just give them the part numbers (P & B) or the type of relay (how many poles, types of poles, basing, contact ratings and coil voltages (plus AC/DC), and they may very well have what you need. Cheers! S.

I am an elevator parts supplier that specializes in relays and other electrical components. If you can provide me with some numbers and voltages I should be able to provide you a replacement for this relay. You can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 800-969- 9788. Hope to hear from you. Matt

These relays are not obsolete, the octal base is a standard 2 pole form C relay. (form C means each pole has a normally open contact, a normally closed contact, and a single common for both contacts.) There are many manufactures of these relays. We use Idec RR2P-ULC AC240V (the last set of digits is the coil voltage. You can buy these or compatable relays at Granger, RS Electronics, or Access Elevator Supply in CA.

even easier- replace that old base to an ice cube relay base, then you'll get replacements with no problem
