As consumer and commercial appliances get “smarter” their designs get more complex and intricate. Space and weight savings, and green designs become paramount. So design engineers turn to Standex-Meder – a trusted resource for assemblies, as well as ideas, engineering expertise and assistance at every stage.
Standex-Meder supplies a broad range of power magnetic components and value-added assemblies to manufacturers of commercial and consumer appliances such as PC-Mount low cost current-sense transformers for dishwasher control and channel mount transformers with agency approved insulated winding area and lead termination for power supply applications.
Standex-Meder Electronics has developed a series of low-profile safety switches for commercial and residential laundry applications. This unique switch system features a snap-in design which eliminates the need for mounting hardware and the accompanying parts and labor for mounting. The switch slides through a slot in the washer's sheet metal and is supplied as part of the washer harness.
In addition to the switch, Standex-Meder manufactures the actuator assembly that mounts (hidden) in the washer lid. This provides a complete six sigma design system which shuts down the washer when the lid is raised. These devices are capable of switching a wide variety of electrical loads — from DC logic level to 240 VAC.
