Franklin Control Systems (FCS)

Franklin Control Systems is a leader in the manufacturing of motor controls for HVAC, pump and industrial markets. Products include variable speed drives, building automation starters, soft starters, motor control components and related accessories. They strive for constant growth and improvement via lean organization practices, innovation, consistency, and excellent service.

Founded in 2003 as Cerus Industrial, Franklin Control Systems continues to grow rapidly. Sego proudly picked up the product line right after being purchased by Franklin Electric. Since that time, we have moved beyond expectations with products such as our Arctic ready drive package, SSP (smart start panels) which are a stocked unit, and many other great innovations.

What makes FCS controls different?


    The way they treat our customers is what really separates Franklin Control Systems from the rest. They understand that when you need help with a machine, you don’t want to call in and talk to one. That’s why when you call FCS you’ll be able to talk to a live person from 6:30am – 10:00pm PST. Add to that blazing fast lead times and an industry leading warranty, and it’s easy to see why more and more people are turning to Franklin Control Systems for their control solutions.


    FCS has been pioneering new solutions and technologies in the motor controls industry since their inception. From their all-in-one smart starters featuring Smartstart motor protection, to our user-friendly and energy saving variable frequency drives, they are leading the way when it comes to intelligent motor controls.


    They stand behind their products with an industry leading five year warranty on our variable frequency drives, contactors, overloads and circuit breakers sold through our HVAC and Industrial channels. Please see our warranty section for more details.
