Tattletale Systems:

manufacturers wireless portable alarm systems which are ideal for a variety of applications. The Tattletale system is the first cellular portable alarm system. The system includes a base unit which has built-in tilt switches as well as an area scanning sensor. To accompany the base unit there are a wide variety of wireless sensor options. Some examples are motion sensors, area scanners, vibration sensors and conductive loop sensors to name a few. The units can be unpacked and installed in minutes especially since all the sensors are wireless.

These systems are ideal for electrical substations, job sites and other areas that are unattended. No one likes to have their property tampered with or stolen and because these systems are portable, they are ideal for all kinds of remote applications. The factory is happy to provide design assistance to help select the right sensors to protect the site. They also provide signs to warn possible intruders that the site is protected.

Phase Conversion Products from Phase Technologies

AquaPhase Pump ConverterPhase Technologies designs and manufacturers a variety of power conversion products. The primary product line is used to convert single phase to 3 phase power for a variety of applications. While there are a variety of methods for converting single to 3 phase power, Phase Technologies offers digital converters rather than static or rotary converters. Phase Technologies offerings include fixed frequency and variable frequency converters.

Phase Perfect is a digital phase converter for converting 230VAC Single Phase power to 230VAC 3 Phase power. The units produce a near perfect sinusoidal output and are very efficient as compared to other types of converters. Units are available in a NEMA 1 or NEMA 3R enclosure. The units can also be supplied with a motor starter so the unit can be used to start and stop a motor without an additional control panel.

AquaPhase Pump Converters add several new capabilities beyond basic phased converters. First the units are available with a voltage doubling capability so 230VAC single phase input units provide a 480VAC 3 Phase output. Additional models are available to convert 480VAC single phase to 3 Phase power. In addition to the phase conversion capabilities, these units also provide a variable frequency output. The units require little or no programming for basic applications and are available with a keypad for status and programming capabilities. Unlike standard variable frequency drives, these units produce little harmonics content and have a harmonic filter included on the front end. AquaPhase units have a basic terminal strip for start / stop functions and speed control. Like the Phase Perfect models these units are available with either a NEMA 1 or NEMA 3R enclosure.

APG was our first relationship as a Manufacturers’ Representative. Prior to joining Advanced Automation Products in 2005 I managed an automation distributor in Jacksonville, FL which was one of the first distributors for what was then STI Automation Products Group. I have maintained a relationship with APG for over 10 years and have watched this company reinvent itself over the past few years. I consider myself very fortunate to have a relationship with APG and look forward to growing with them.

APG specializes in level and pressure sensing products used for a variety of commercial and industrial applications. The product assortment includes ultrasonic sensors, digital pressure gauges, analog pressure sensors and float sensors. The newest addition to the product line is Level over Ethernet which brings level measurement to the Internet.

This company not only provides high quality sensor products but they are also able to provide customization for most of their products in small quantities. Some examples are custom cord lengths, custom bends, flanges and fittings and other customizations. Our customers continue to be impressed with the professionalism and support they receive as well as the high quality products they receive from APG.
