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 Electronics – a trusted resource for assemblies, as well as ideas, engineering expertise and assistance at every stage.
Standex Electronics 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 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 Electronics 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.
