Standex Electronics Announces Model FPS-T Flood Prevention Switches for HVAC Applications

Versatile plug-n-play model allows for ease and flexibility of installation

Cincinnati, OH – March 6, 2013 – Standex Electronics, a global manufacturer of reed switches, sensors, relays, and magnetics, announces its new FPS-T line of flood prevention switches, which safeguard HVAC environments from condensate overflow buildup. Improving on the proven technology of its predecessors, the FPS-T includes two “Do-It-All” custom tee pipe fittings for easy installation options.

These low voltage switches are ideal for commercial and residential HVAC applications. With Standard Tee and auxiliary options, as well as a vertical drain fitting for close coupled installations, they provide truly hassle-free technology, ready to accommodate any application. In addition, the FPS-T switches are easy to service and extremely reliable.

At the heart of each FPS-T switch is an integral magnetic reed switch from Standex Electronics, the world leader in magnetic reed switch design and manufacture. If a clogged air conditioning condensate drain causes the water level in the main or auxiliary drain pipe to rise, the FPS-T shuts off the system, preventing any possible overflow that could damage floors, walls and ceilings.

Compliant with UL508 and applicable NEC and IMC codes, and manufactured of materials that will not rust or stick, the FPS-T operates smoothly and reliably every time. The switches are easy to install on either primary or auxiliary drain plugs and are easily accessible for service. The flexible switch is available in red-wire or yellow-wire connection options.
