In an effort to keep up with the changing technology, MPE will no longer be sending out CDs with digital copies of our literature. Instead we have found this amazing "new" tech called a USB drive that we will be using for now on! Please let us know if you would like to receive a digital copy of our catalog and we will mail one out to you.
In an effort to provide better pricing to our customers, M.P. Electronics will begin supplying its 8 pin Dual Voltage Phase Monitors (001-DVM-118) for orders of units for a single voltage, whether 230V or 480V.
By keeping less product types on the shelf resulting in lower inventory cost, M.P. Electronics hopes to pass the cost savings on to our customers.
Our website has been redesigned to be "Responsive" making it mobile and tablet friendly.
Do you ever need more information on one of our products, installation instructions, recommendations, or need to cross reference or convert parts you have to a current MPE unit? All you need to do if go to the Application Notes page on our website and all of the notes are listed by category and available for download.
QR codes have become an easy way to get the information you need using your mobile device. You no longer have to worry whether the physical manual is still in the panel. Every MPE Controller comes with a QR code on its exterior that will take you directly to the manuals page on our website.
As of January 1st 2016 the 025-120-105 Flasher has been discontinued and is no longer available.
The BOAC (Battery Operated and Alarm Charger) is a device that performs the various tasks required to manage a 12VDC alarm system that has an alarm, strobe light, horn, and a 12V backup battery. The BOAC charges the backup battery, provides a Power Loss Alarm (when required), has a repeat cycle timer for the horn, a sytem push-to-test button, and indication of the battery charging mode.
For all of our plug-in 230V Phase Monitors, M.P. Electronics has increased the adjustment range from (200-240VAC) to (200-280VAC). Higher Voltages in multiple locations prompted this change, which began as requests from our customers for this modification. This same change has also been incorporated into the 230V range of our Dual Voltage Monitors, making these M.P. Electronics products viable for years to come.
M.P. Electronics has discontinued production of the BS2000 Bubbler System. This has been a very dependable product, but the decline in interest in the Bubbler System over the years has made it no longer cost effective for M.P. Electronics to produce this product.
There has been a manual for the 010-120-121P Simplexer uploaded and Application Notes section has been updated with the latest notes.
M.P. Electronics announces its latest firmware revision for its SC1000 and SC2000 Controllers. For the SC2000 Controller, the latest firmware is Version 12, and for the SC1000 Controller, the latest firmware is Version 10. In this firmware change, the Pump Disable inputs can now be inverted via parameter setting selection.
Added App Note to website for Xylem-Flygt to M.P. Electronics part number cross-reference list.
Added App Note to website on PMR2 replacement for 24V MiniCas.
Added App Note to website for and Intrinsically Safe solution using a Level Probe Relay.
(LPR-1), a Single Point Level Probe, and an I.S. Stahl Barrier.
M.P. Electronics has received their UL Listing of the LPC420R product. This level Probe Converter product has both an analog output and 10 relay outputs, is deadfront door mountable, with the level indication viewable from both the front and the rear of the unit.
Introduced SC2000 Software Version 11, and SC1000 Software Version 9:
Remote Control of Level Input Signal.
Remote Control of Flush Cycle.
Selectable Time Ranges for time based alternation.
M.P. Electronics began selling the PMR2, the M.P. Electronics branded version of the Xylem-Flygt MiniCas120.
M.P. Electronics had manufactured this product for Xylem-Flygt for many years. The PMR2 is identical to the MiniCas120, except for the product labeling.
Received UL Listing for our Simplexer Controller. The Simplexer operates via floats or Level Probes, and is the only One Pump Controller on the market that is SCADA-Ready.
Began production on our Level Monitor Submersible Transducer. The Level Monitor is available in 5, 10, and 15 psi ranges with standard cable lengths of 40 ft. and 100ft.
Completed mold for Panel Air Vent as a product for OEM’s. Previous molder for this product is no longer in business, and this air vent is popular among panel builder OEM’s. This Panel Air vent product is found in our catalog and on our website under Hardware.
Introduced SC2000 Software Version 10, and SC1000 Software Version 8:
Added Flow Calculation features.
Added level offset feature that automatically updated with changes in level settings.
Added remote reset for fault codes.
SC2000 available now with optional Ethernet Port. SC2000 firmware also has been updated to provide parameters for wetwell flush and flow calculation.
Still to come in 2011:
The SC1000 Controller is being updated to provide an Ethernet Port for Modbus TCP/IP Communication. This Controller will also have setup parameters to perform a wetwell flush and flow calculation.
MPE will finish work on a Level Probe to relay output device which will include an analog output signal based on the level seen by the Level Probe. The part number for this product will be LP2RC, Level Probe to Relay Converter.
12/28/2010 Now in Production - Newly Re-designed ISD Controller to UL913, Version 7
MPE has made this Controller a truly great product. The inputs accept either floats or a conductance level probe. A low level input and relay contact has been added. The ISD is now SCADA-Ready with a standard RS232 Modbus port, and an optional Ethernet Modbus TCP/IP Port. The Push-to-Test feature has been enhanced, and the Controller has been designed to be used in transient tough applications.
12/06/2010 Off to UL for Evaluation - Sump Pump Exerciser
MPE's Sump Pump Exerciser in now at UL for evaluation and testing. This unit will periodically exercise a sump pump for an on time of 3 to 10 seconds with an off time of 10 to 14 days. This unit can be used with both Piggy-Back or Integral Float type Sump Pumps. For more information, contact MPE at email@example.com
