Cerus Motor Control Module

The Building Automation Starter (BAS) motor controls from Cerus feature the patent-pending Smartstart Control Module for seamless integration with digital controls. The starters accept dry voltage inputs from 12 to 250 Vac for activation by control systems without interposing relays. Other control options include auto run, fireman’s override, fault, proof of flow to detect loss of load, and SmartStart predictive calibration. Integrated LED pilot lights and Hand/Off/Auto keypad are standard, simplifying unit setup and verification. A single model accepts 208 to 600 Vac and motor loads up to 40 A, eliminating discrete thermal overloads and numerous contactor coil voltages.

New Lead Free Instrumentation Products By Winters Instruments

Winters now offers a new series of lead free pressure gauges, thermometers and accessories. These lead free products are especially designed and manufactured to meet the strict requirements of the USA 2014 Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA).

As of January 4th 2014, the SDWA is limiting the amount of lead content of all products being installed into potable/drinking water systems.

For ease of identification, all Winters part numbers which adhere to the SDWA will be identified with the letters LF at the end of the part number (LF = Lead Free). You can view our new Lead Free Brochure here.

Evacuated Tube Solar Collectors By HTP

Evacuated Tube Solar Collectors harness the power of the sun to provide energy for hydronic systems while reducing utility costs and pollution. Evacuated tube collectors use a vacuum space within each tube’s borosilicate glass shell to offer unsurpassed heat loss protection. HTP Evacuated Tube Solar Collectors are independently tested and certified by the world’s leading solar energy authorities. Numerous design innovations ensure that HTP’s Evacuated Tube Solar Collectors lead the industry in reliability, heat output, and return on investment.

Reduce your water heating bills by 50% to 75% and can supplement space heating as well.

Solar thermal collectors are 30% – 70% efficient in converting the sun’s energy into usable heat vs. solar electric or P.V. panels which are 10% – 15% efficient in converting the sun’s energy into usable electricity.

Built in redundancy – damaged tubes can be removed individually, leaving the remainder of the system to continue functioning.

Incentives & Rebates available for Solar Thermal:

  • Federal Tax Credit 
  • Accelerated Depreciation 
  • State Incentives 
  • Utility Incentives
