Love controls Division, the preferred source for your complete range of practical and affordable instrumentation, is announcing the release of its NEW SERIES TSX3 DIGITAL TEMPERATURE SWITCH FOR REFRIGERATION APPLICATIONS.    The Series TSX3 Digital Temperature Switch was designed to control the compressor, fan, and defrost in refrigeration applications. This generation of controls has field selectable engineering units and input probe types in order to reduce the combination of parts that need to be stocked. A built in real time clock is used for HACCP logging of temperature alarms caused by temperatures out of their set limits or loss of power. The Intelligent Defrost parameters manage the defrost cycle in order to save energy cost. The digital input can be used to remotely trigger a defrost cycle, monitor cooler door status, or act as an external alarm. For programming multiple units, the model TS2-K configuration key can be used to quickly downloaded parameter settings.• Probe Range: PTC: -58 to 302°F (-50 to 150°C); NTC: -58 to 230°F (-50 to 110°C). • Input: PTC (1000? @ 25°C) / NTC (10K? @ 25°C) Digital Input Contact. • Output: All models SPST NO relay resistive load 16A, inductive load 5A, 10 FLA, 60 LRA @ 240 VAC; dual output models also include 8A resistive, 3A inductive SPDT @ 240 VAC; three output models also include 8A resistive SPST NO @ 240 VAC, 5A resistive SPST NO @ 240 VAC. • Horsepower Rating: 1HP @ 240 VAC. • Control Type: On/Off. • Power Requirement: 115 VAC, 230 VAC, 12 VAC/VDC, 24 VAC/DC (±10%) depending on model. • Power Consumption: 3.6VA (115/230/24 V), 1.5VA (12V). • Accuracy: ±1% FS. • Display: 3 digits plus sign. • Resolution: 0.1°. • Memory Backup: Non-volatile memory. • Ambient Temperature: 32 to 131°F (0 to 55°C). • Weight: 2.3 oz (65 g). • Front Protection: IP65. • Agency Approvals: CE, UL.
