ALL Analog Models Get Smarter


New TimerStat Pro Status LED Enlightens Owners / Serviceman

Latrobe, PA - September 10, 2018

The NEW Analog "C" Series Heat Siphon's began shipping this month with our new TimerStat Pro Controller that adds a sophisticated status LED light while keeping our economical original "Set It & Forget It!" single knob design.

The LED can display red green & orange to let you know the status of your Heat Siphon at a glance, including - POWER, NO FLOW, HEATING, HI/LOW Pressure Error, Reset Breaker Error & Call Factory for Servuce.

When flashing the LED signifies various conditions such as checking flow, restart delay, heating pool, SEE ABOVE - animation for demonstration.

The TimerStat Pro will mount in the same door as the digital Player Models.

This allows a direct replacement upgrade to Digital without any wiring or harness changes other than a simple jumper. Just remove the door unscrew the plug and replace it with a digital Player door assembly.

"This is a MAJOR improvement which required some changes to the software of the controller, and the minimal cost of adding an LED to the board. The NEW SMART USER FRIENDLY Timerstat Pro will not impact the price of our analog models" says Bill Bernardi, President.

After climbing for most of the past two years, U.S. exports have trended down since May. but the U.S. economy is still being boosted by strong consumer spending, associated with low unemployment and individual income tax cuts enacted last year.

Rising government spending, particularly on the military, has also boosted U.S. demand.

The U.S. is somewhat insulated from an international slowdown because its exports are only about 12% of gross domestic product, compared to a global average of about 29% and even higher in Germany, meaning the U.S. is less exposed than most countries when the global economy weakens.

A months-long slowdown in China’s economy, as retail sales rose 8.6% in October from a year earlier, slowing from a 9.2% on-year gain in September.
