Fernando Arenas, the chief executive of LCI’s Spanish distributor Calor y Frio, is delighted with LCI’s newly launched upgraded LT3500 power sensing timer. This long established popular timer has been further developed to enable it to differentiate between standby and operating modes on the equipment being controlled by the timer.
This feature assumes great importance when heaters, TVs and air conditioning equipment are being controlled where often the amount of current being drawn between standby and operating can be very small resulting in the pre upgraded meter sometimes counting down in standby mode.
Fernando has reported that as a direct result of the upgrade he has taken a large order from a hospital wanting to control TVs for use by patients as well as receiving an influx of enquiries for the control of air conditioning equipment.
Back in the UK, Chris Yard LCI’s Technical Manager also commented that, like the rest of the LT range the new LT3500 is quick and easy to set up and with the auto current sense mode it makes a great addition to LCI’s coin operated timer range.
Laurie Fairhurst, Managing Director of LCI, prophesised that the investment on developing the upgraded LT3500 will be recovered well within the first year of the sales launch.
