Robust designs help equipment designers gain a competitive edgeStandex-Meder Electronics, a global manufacturer of reed switches, sensors, relays and magnetics, announces the availability of a complete portfolio of custom power and current sense transformers and components that help HVAC/R equipment designers gain a competitive edge in the marketplace.Standex Transformers Allow Commercial AC Manufacturers to Keep their CoolAs companies strive to differentiate themselves in today's competitive marketplace, savvy engineers are finding help from their transformers and power supplies. Custom transformers and power supplies can often help manufacturers to extend their warranties — thus helping them to gain a competitive advantage.Standex-Meder addresses these needs with robust designs and ancillary services. If the application requires a basic coil transformer, Standex-Meder can supply that. We can also add leads and wiring harnesses to simplify installation and hook up. Have other components that need to work together? Standex-Meder can produce upstream and downstream components — then assemble and test them to ensure efficacy. Additional services such as over-molding and potting ensure proper form fit and function and protect these robust designs from the environmental factors — providing years of trouble free services.As companies combine multiple HVAC components which are centrally controlled, the need for custom transformers is apparent. For example, one HVAC company utilizes a condenser and an evaporator, both of which are controlled by a central control system. All three of these components have diverse current requirements which are supplied by a single Standex-Meder custom transformer.Standex Current Sensors Keep Frozen Drinks at Optimal ConsistencyWhen companies need to deliver their delicious frozen drink concoctions at just the right consistency, they rely on Standex-Meder current sensors and 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.Standex-Meder does not employ a "make it fit" mentality but rather designs 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.About Standex-Meder ElectronicsStandex-Meder Electronics is a worldwide market leader in the design, development and manufacture of standard and custom electro-magnetic components, including magnetics products and reed switch-based solutions.Our magnetic offerings include planar, Rogowski, current, and low- and high-frequency transformers and inductors.
