ROFU 1106 Series cycle test

It’s a good thing there is a machine to count for this test.  Here is a short video clip we made of the new 1106 series strike during cycle testing.  It may not be the most exciting clip to watch, but we are looking forward to longevity and durability.

ROFU 1106…. So close 

We’ve made you wait long enough, but after this redesign we are hoping you will love it as much as we do!    

We are improving upon it and building it with better products to make it hold up better in those extreme gate installations.  Give us another month or so and they should be ready!

Let’s Rectify this – Do you know the difference?

rofu-2014-282 copyDo you need to convert that AC transformer to DC?  Well, here is an economical way to do just that!
The ROFU #1005 (without leads) or ROFU #1006 (with 6″ leads) Full Wave Bridge Rectifiers
They are a lot more than what meets the eye! These two ROFU models will accept up to 10A Max, Up to 1000V (higher than most)

There are full wave rectifiers and half wave rectifiers, with an electric strike it may not matter as much if you use a half wave rectifier, but if you try to use one with an electromagnetic lock the magnet will not function correctly.  The pictures below show you why:

Halfwave_rectifier_en

This drawing (above) shows a half wave rectifier.  It removes the negative flow and leaves you with only the top positive half of the wave, this will give you quick burst of power.

Fullwave_rectifier_en

The full wave rectifier (above) convert the entire negative flow to positive flow, ensuring the current flow continues with no gaps.

For electro-magnetic lock installations, ROFU always recommends using a “full-wave” bridge rectifier, anything less would create breaks in the power (the bursts in the 1st drawing), and thus putting the holding force into question.  It is also important that installers know that they can use “cheap” rectifiers, but also there is a bigger possibility that they will not cancel the entire negative flow, which means it would allow “AC” power to leak through, and possibly damage the magnetic lock or the PC board.

For fail secure electric strike installations, you could use a half wave rectifier and shouldn’t have power issues, but we always recommend using a full wave bridge rectifier.

Mounting tabs.. We’ve ALWAYS INCLUDED them FREE!

Most of our ROFU strike models come standard with mounting tabs in the hardware pack!

How many hours are you wasting calling for tracking numbers?

Here are some ways ROFU tries to help you with free services from UPS, its just another bit of customer service we want to pass on to you: If you supply us with an email address on your purchase orders we’ll add it to our shipment and at our close of shipping day UPS will send you an email that will contain the tracking number, your PO number, our sales confirmation number, and the destination address and arrival date.

This is a great service but we have found out in a lot of cases the email goes to the buyer and never any further.  Regretfully it never makes it to the sales staff, sometimes the emails have already been marked as spam so the buyer will never see them either, so much needed information – LOST.  The reason we know this is because within a couple of days from shipping we get telephone call(s) from the sales person looking for the tracking number or shipping date.

We started suggesting this tracking option about 3-4 months and we are still hoping it will catch on, as we think this can work with everyone and just maybe no one will ever have to call for a tracking number again.  Keep in mind everyone who enters the PO # must be consistent in the way they enter it)!

Try it! Track via the ‘reference number’ option on UPS, this is an excellent bit of customer service that EVERYONE should use!  Try it!  We always enter your purchase order number on Reference Line 1, as
PO # Number goes here

Go here:
to the Tracking option on http://www.ups.com upsmenu Then click on Track by Reference

 

track ref
NOW enter YOUR PO number just like this refjust like this
PO # __________  and YOUR shipment information should come up! (make sure the stuff in red is that way)
If it was entered correctly the tracking number will magically appear on your screen 🙂
