Cincinnati, OH – January 10, 2012 – Standex Electronics introduces a new family of flood prevention switches to safeguard from condensate overflow buildup. Available in Tee, Elbow and bracket-mounted designs, the new switches are attractively packaged and ready for retail sale. Each is easy to install on either the main or auxiliary drain pipe. Rising water within the installation (caused by a clogged air conditioning condensate drain) triggers the switch to shut off the system – preventing water from overflowing. Compliant with UL508 and manufactured of materials that do not rust or stick, each member of the FPS family operates smoothly and provides years of trouble free service. Standex FPS switches are ideal for residential air conditioner installations as well as those found commercially within apartments, condominiums and other multi-family housing, schools, universities, government facilities and more.
An integral magnetic reed switch is at the heart of this proven technology which operates on low voltage. Installation is simple and flexible – with red or yellow wire connections. Multiple fittings are provided with each switch assembly to accommodate various installation requirements.
“When you consider our capability as a world leader in the design and manufacture of magnetic reed switches, coupled with familiarity with the HVAC market, and our expertise making custom float assemblies, then this is really a natural product extension of our core competencies” said Christian Rogiers, Director of Global Marketing for Standex Electronics. “We have a long tradition of making custom designed condensate switches, so developing a line for commercial and residential applications was a logical next step. We’re excited to enter the market and look forward to partnering with HVAC dealers and distributors nationwide.”
