In the past, OEM parts were only custom-made, they were very engineering-intensive, and they were very expensive. Furthermore, designs which permitted efficient manufacture could not be easily changed to accommodate special needs. So when changes were made, it amounted to a custom effort and fabricated construction usually not of the same quality as the tooled design.
Now however, some companies have started to make "out of the box" components and parts for OEM controls. Just like building blocks or an erector set, these mix and match parts include a variety of snap and screw-together plastic parts that connect to generic liquid level switches and sensors, flow sensors, temperature sensors, temperature switch controls, pump controls and relays.
The flexibility, adaptability, quickness and cost advantage this OEM solution makes pretty much everything easier for the OEM equipment builder. Additionally, they are reusable and repairable too, adding to their great convenience even more. By using non-OEM parts you can reduce your maintenance and repair costs by as much as 90% while also creating what you need in little to no time at all.
The specially designed out of the box hardware complements flow switch, liquid level switch and temperature switch sensors, making a variety of constructions and permutations possible. Simply start with the selection of the sensing switch, and then attach the generic mix and match components. Geometries are altered, functions expand, and previously expensive OEM functions instantly become practical and affordable.
With the erecta switch concept there are no bounds beyond the physical limitations of each component. The factorial combination of size, material, function, and geometry is enormous. Wet attachment interfaces are O-ring sealed, and active components, like the liquid level and flow sensors are factory assembled so all that is needed is a few screws and snaps for assembly.
As long as the threads are standard NPT and NPS pipe threads, they will work with any pipe thread device with complementary threads as well. Some known generic components that work with this concept include adapters, bulkhead fittings, precision nipples, connectors, support brackets, wiring receptacles, and relay housings.
Many installations can be made more cost-effective by combining mix and match non-OEM hardware with sensing switches manufactured by others. Check out building block systems for inexpensive OEM solutions today.
