Standex Electronics: Condensate Flood Prevention Switches
May 7, 2012
Available in tee, elbow, and bracket-mounted designs, the new family of flood prevention switches (FPS) safeguard from condensate overflow buildup. Each is easy to install on either the main or auxiliary drain pipe. Rising water within the installation (caused by a clogged a/c 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, the company said. An integral magnetic reed switch is at the heart of the 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.
