Foodservice Market Applications
Custom Transformers, Sensors and Electronic Assemblies
Standex supplies custom transformers, power supplies and electronic components to manufacturers of foodservice equipment. Often our innovative thinking leads to unique designs and technologies like current sense transformers which sense the drag on rotors used in "slushy" machines, or fluid level switches used for syrup dispensers.
Green Market Applications
Custom Transformers and Electronic Assemblies to Green the Environment and your Bottom Line
Standex Electronics is playing a leading role in the greening of America. From custom transformers and electronic assemblies used in power meters for the "smart grid" to reed switch based level sensors used to conserve water in household and commercial appliances - we're using technology and innovative designs to conserve America's natural resources.
HVAC Market Applications
Connectors, Terminals, Sensors and Custom Transformers
Custom transformers can often help designers of HVAC/R equipment to gain a competitive edge in the marketplace. Our robust designs are available as single components or can be combined with other components such as wiring harnesses, leads, moldings, stamping, even integration into upstream/downstream components like sensors to simplify installation and reduce costs.
Industrial Market Applications
Custom Transformers, Sensors and Component Magnetics
Component failure in industrial environments means downtime, lost production, and lost revenue. Thats why design engineers rely on Standex Electronics to provide not only electronic components like transformers, inductors and chokes, but also ideas, engineering expertise and assistance. As a manufacturer with a global footprint, Standex offers worldwide sourcing and manufacturing capabilities. This translates to cost effective procurement, manufacturing, and logistics depending on the needs of the customer. Standex is fully capable of providing individual components as well as integrated sub-assemblies and assemblies.
Lighting Market Applications
Custom Transformers and Electronic Assemblies
Custom transformers and electronic assemblies from Standex have been lighting the way for decades literally. Our solid state ignitors initiate the "turn on" sequence to light bulbs to illuminate roadways, outdoor sporting events, and facilities with high bay lighting. Our design engineers collaborate on circuit and product designs to provide value-added features, like the first ever snap-in design which eliminates hard wiring and speeds future service calls.
Marine Market Applications
Custom Electronics & Fluid Level Sensors
Standex design engineers often think "out of the box" to develop custom marine solutions like the "voice coil" we developed for use in an outboard marine engine. This coil, which is completely immersed in fuel, energizes the fuel injectors. This engine has the highest efficiency and cleanest operating performance of any marine engine. In addition to the electronics functioning properly, we had to develop a seal that would isolate the electronics from its corrosive and highly combustible environment.
Medical Market Applications
Custom Transformers and Electronic Assemblies
Custom designed Standex electronic components are used in a wide variety of medical devices and assemblies. Design engineers rely on us to provide custom transformers, power supplies and electronic components that work the first time and every time. We can supply value-added features like molding, connectors, and complete shelf-ready assemblies which shorten manufacturing time and costs.
Military and Aerospace Market Applications
Harsh Demanding Applications "Dont Leave Earth Without It"
In geosynchronous orbit there is no room for error. In fact, theres little room for anything. Thats why NASA programs and satellite manufacturers rely on Standex Electronics to meet the most demanding applications in the harshest environments. They know that Standex is experienced in providing flight assemblies that are manufactured to the most stringent quality standards. Utilizing an industry leading, state of the art environmental test lab Standex is also capable of completely testing these assemblies 'in-house'. All military and aerospace work is backed up with the most up to date certified quality systems and procedures required to operate in the government arena.
Power Meter Market Applications
Custom Sensors and Transformers
The ever-increasing demand for electric power not only requires more generating capacity but more efficient use of the electricity that is available for consumers today. To accomplish this goal utility companies are turning to "smart meters" which can measure, monitor, collect and analyze how electricity is being used in the home or the industrial workspace. Many Smart Meters offer additional capabilities like remote connect/disconnect of power or tamper detection circuitry.
Security Market Applications
Magnetic Reed Switches and Custom Components
Standex manufactures a wide variety of products used in security and fire detection/suppression systems. We are a world leader in the manufacture of magnetic reed switches for security and fire detection systems, as well as wound magnetics including custom transformers.
Unmanned Systems Market Applications
Custom Transformers, Position Sensors, Coils, Inductors and Custom Electronic Assemblies
There is no room for error in unmanned systems. In fact there is little room for anything. Thats why designers of drones and unmanned vehicles rely on Standex Electronics for custom transformers, coils, inductors, and high reliability position sensors.
