Trigger Pumps to Eliminate Condensate Overflow Buildup
A new line of Flood Prevention Switches from Standex Electronics safeguards HVAC environments from condensate overflow buildup. With Tee, elbow and bracket models to suit any installation — these low voltage switches are ideal for commercial and residential HVAC applications. At the heart of this proven technology is an integral magnetic reed switch from the world leader in magnetic reed switch design and manufacture — Standex Electronics.
Each model of the FPS family is simple to install, easy to service and extremely reliable. As water level in the main or auxiliary drain pipe rises (due to a clogged air conditioning condensate drain) the FPS shuts off the system — thus preventing water from overflowing which could cause damage to floors, walls and ceilings. Compliant with UL508, and manufactured of materials that will not rust or stick, the FPS operates smoothly every time.See our Standex Electronics Introduces New Line of Flood Prevention Switches for HVAC Applications brochure.
Standex Current Sensors Keep Frozen Drinks at Optimal Consistency
When companies need to deliver their delicious frozen drink concoctions at just the right consistency, they rely on Standex current sensors and transformers. By understanding the process first, and then designing a product to those parameters, our engineers determined that monitoring current draw was a more effective means of achieving product consistency than measuring temperature. Agitator paddles draw more current as the drink mixture freezes. Monitoring current draw (with a Standex current sensor) allows us to stop and the restart the refrigerant flow (with a Standex custom transformer) to maintain proper consistency — with far more accuracy than merely monitoring temperature.
We do not employ a "make it fit" mentality but rather design to your parameters. Whether that means unique current draw, special voltage outputs or constrained footprint parameters, Standex engineers take it all in stride. We can deliver basic transformer coils, add leads and wiring harnesses, even add additional components to complete the assembly, and then over-mold or pot them so that the final product is impervious to the elements.
Don't let your demanding HVAC/R application cause your blood to boil. Call Standex — we'll have you "chilling" in no time!
Standex Transformers Allow Commercial AC Manufacturers to Keep their Cool
As companies strive to differentiate themselves in today's competitive marketplace, savvy engineers are finding help from their transformers and power supplies. Custom transformers and power supplies can often help manufacturers to extend their warranties — thus helping them to gain a competitive advantage.
Standex addresses these needs with robust designs and ancillary services. If the application requires a basic coil transformer we can supply that. We also add leads and wiring harnesses to simplify installation and hook up if. Have other components that need to work together? We can produce upstream and downstream components — then assemble and test them to ensure efficacy. Additional services such as over-molding and potting ensure proper form fit and function and protect these robust designs from the environmental factors — providing years of trouble free services (well beyond your stated warranty period).
As companies combine multiple HVAC components which are centrally controlled, the need for custom transformers is apparent. One company utilizes a condenser and an evaporator both of which are controlled by a central control system. All three of these components have diverse current requirements which are supplied by a single Standex custom transformer.
Does your demanding HVAC/R application have you steamed? Then call Standex — we'll help you keep your cool!
