Expo visitors seeking an easy-to-install indoor/outdoor alarm were offered an early look at the Tank Alert EZ from SJE-Rhombus at the Pumper & Cleaner Environmental Expo International. The two-color, molded enclosure features a removable cover for field wiring and external tabs for easy installation.

“You don’t have to take the cover off to mount it on a piece of wood or wall,” says Tim Callander, regional sales manager for SJE-Rhombus, who expected the early Expo buzz would generate interest in the product that was scheduled for release in April.

“We had a lot of activity,” he says. Questions primarily focused on the pros of the product. “One was that you could mount it without having to take the cover off because of the way it’s molded with the plastic case. That was one of the attributes they liked for sure.”

The self-sealing unit has an integrated LED beacon that illuminates the upper translucent half of the unit. Other features include an alarm test/silence switch, green power-on LED indicator, automatic alarm reset and auxiliary contacts for remote devices. The plug-and-play alarm also has a distinctly audible alarm.

Made for lift pump chambers, sump pump basins, holding tanks and other waste applications, the enclosure meets Type 3R watertight standards. Marks on the bottom of the unit indicate wiring entry locations. Model 1036589 has a 15-foot SignalMaster control switch and model 1036591 has a high- or low-level float alarm.

“The nice thing about this is it doesn’t require a seal,” Callander says of the enclosure’s two-piece design. “Seals can wear down and deteriorate over time. This seals in and screws tight.” An optional terminal block and 240-volt models are available. 888/342-5753; www.sjerhombus.com.
