    Old Siemens SCU Controllers

    I've been ripping out some old Siemens SCU controllers at several buildings while performing some controls upgrades. Is there any demand for this product? I tried posting it on ebay with no success. I hate to throw these things out.

    Have you tried to contact your local Siemens office? They might give you a credit or small token for them.

    The are old but most likely rock solid. As long as they are working you should be able to get something for them. Do you know any other customers from your Siemens office? Ask them if they want or need an on-hand replacement.

    I've seen a website where buying and selling older controls is their business. If I can find the web address, I'll post it.

    Good Luck!

    Actually Siemens no longer offers a credit for the old controllers. I've been saving them as spares in case some of the old controllers need an emergency fix but my stock is going to get out of hand after I upgrade a few more buildings. We've been replacing them with newer Siemens controllers.
    cheesehd - I think the company you are referring to is Automation Parts Warehouse. They have a huge supply of these older controllers and are not really buying them.
    They are really good, reliable controllers - i've seen many running for 20+ years without a hiccup.
    I decided to install one in my house just to run my heating system.

    Too Old

    Siemens discontinued the SCU more than 4 years ago. Any credit they were giving is long gone now. You probably aren't going to get anything for them now. Siemens had a MBC designed to fit into a SCU cabinet as a direct replacement.
