User-friendly Auto Sash Controller Upgrades Announced

May 07 2021

Laboratory fume cupboard operatives now have access to a newly upgraded auto sash controller, which enables them to operate the unit with greater ease and efficiency. The enhanced unit has been created in response to customer demand by UK-based world-leading specialist in electronic airflow controls and monitors, TEL.

Auto sash controllers automatically close fume cupboard hoods when they detect that there is no operator present, helping to minimise energy consumption. TEL’s research indicates that the installation of one of its controllers can save customers approximately £1000 in energy costs per fume cupboard per year.

TEL’s modified controller now features the Auto Stop function, automatically stopping the opening sash at the sash working height of 500mm (this may be adjusted subject to user preference to 400mm), ensuring a safe face velocity of 0.5m/second. The new capability precludes the need for users to fit their own stopping devices.

TEL’s upgraded auto sash controller also features a new, more easily navigated menu, which has been restructured into function groups, allowing users to quickly access specific functions without scrolling through all menu items.

TEL’s Director, Richard Eady, said: “TEL works in close partnership with fume cupboard manufacturers, contractors and users across the world and our priority is to develop products that meet their evolving requirements.

“With our newly upgraded auto sash controller, we are pleased to have once again responded to customer needs with a sustainable product that is now even more user-friendly.”

Established in 1969, TEL is a second-generation family firm. It was a pioneer in the manufacture of fume hood airflow controls and monitors critical to the respiratory protection of laboratory workers, enabling customers to comply with health and safety legislation.

Its products are used in hundreds of thousands of laboratories worldwide via an international supplier network spanning Europe, the US, Africa and Asia. TEL provides a full-service offer, including product and laboratory design consultation, product supply and installation, training and technical backup.
