Standex-Meder Announces Flood Prevention Switches

January 29, 2013

Switches safeguard HVAC environments from condensate overflow buildup.

CINCINNATI, OH -- Standex-Meder Electronics, a global manufacturer of reed switches, sensors, relays and magnetics, announces its new line of flood prevention switches (FPS), which safeguard HVAC environments from condensate overflow buildup. These low-voltage switches are ideal for commercial and residential HVAC applications. With tee, elbow, and bracket models available with multiple fittings to accommodate any application, each FPS model is simple to install, easy to service, and extremely reliable.

At the heart of this proven technology is an integral magnetic reed switch from Standex-Meder 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 shuts off the system, preventing any possible overflow that could damage floors, walls and ceilings.

Compliant with UL508 and applicable NEC codes, and manufactured of materials that will not rust or stick, the FPS 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.
