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 up-stream/downstream components like sensors to simplify installation and reduce costs.
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-Meder current-sense 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-Meder current sensor) allows us to stop and the restart the refrigerant flow (with a Standex-Meder 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-Meder 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-Meder — we'll have you "chilling" in no time!
Trigger Pumps to Eliminate Condensate Overflow Buildup - A new line of Flood Prevention Switches from Standex-Meder 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-Meder 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.
