Hampshire Controls Corp. Announces New Ownership and President
After successfully leading Hampshire Controls Corporation for 18 years – providing real-time monitors, loggers, and condition notification systems of unsurpassed quality and reliability - Diane Rush recently retired as Owner and President of Hampshire Controls.
Ms. Rush stated, “I am pleased to announce that Dr. Michael Pilon, a 30-year veteran from the bioanalytical instrumentation industry, has purchased Hampshire Controls and has assumed the chief executive role.”
She continued, “Mike served as the General Manager of one of Thermo Fisher Scientific’s most successful business units for 17 years, supplying critical life-saving imaging technologies to radiation oncology clinics and unique imaging technologies to the analytical instruments industries. He adds considerable experience and expertise to our already talented team.”
Dr. Pilon, the new Owner & President, indicates, “We plan no short-term changes to our products or services. We will remain focused on delivering the high-quality monitoring, logging, and condition notification systems and calibration services offered since the company’s founding in 1976. However, we will be developing some exciting innovative products focusing on Hampshire Controls’ mission: ‘Safeguarding Your Precious Biological Materials.’”
“Our company is exceedingly grateful to Diane for her exceptional leadership and friendship over the years, and importantly, for agreeing to stay onboard as President Emeritus through the end of 2021 to ensure a smooth transition. We wish her the very best in her retirement.”
“We thank our customers, distributors, vendors, and other business partners for their staunch support throughout the years. We look forward to the work ahead and toward strengthening our business relationships.”
Hampshire Controls Corporation designs and manufactures wired and wireless NIST monitors, loggers, alert notification and airflow monitoring equipment for continuous tracking and traceability for lab research, vaccine storage, pharmaceutical storage, food storage and industrial manufacturing applications.

Hampshire Controls Corp. continues to serve all of our
customers throughout North America at 100% capacity from our
Dover, NH location. We have sufficient inventory and our supply
chains are all operating effectively.
Although New Hampshire is experiencing an uptick in transmission
levels in some towns in the region, the vaccination rate
continues to increase. We continue to follow all CDC, state and
local guidelines for optimum employee safety, and thus, do not
expect any change in our operational status at this time.
However, we continue to track the situation and will continue to
keep you informed of our status.
September 15, 2020 - United Vaccines Chooses Hampshire Controls' Ultra Cold Freezer Temperature Nitrogen Level Detector/Alarm and Air Flow Monitor/Alarm for Vaccine Production and Storage.
Headquartered in Verona, Wisconsin, United Vaccines, Inc. (UV) is known as the leading manufacturer of veterinary vaccines for the fur-bearing animal industry worldwide. Like many manufacturing companies, UV faces a continuing problem; their important biological samples must be properly maintained in ultra-cold, long-term storage with 24/7 monitoring.
Currently, United Vaccines' facility utlilizes Hampshire Controls' Model LD 215 freezer/dewar liquid nitrogen level detector/alarm systems to act as a fail-safe for the mammalian vaccines UV is producing and storing in ultra cold dewars. They also use Hampshire Controls’ 'Air Flow Monitor/Alarm' systems to monitor their laminar flow hoods and biosafety cabinets.

June 6, 2019 - Case Study Conducted with the University of
Colorado's Anschutz Medical Campus Lab by Students from the
University of New Hampshire's Peter T. Paul College of Business
Hampshire Controls worked with students and faculty at the University of New Hampshire's Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics, to help students write a "real-world" case study involving one of our customers; the University of Colorado's, Anschutz Medical Campus Lab.
Like many of our other medical and laboratory customers, we provided the University of Colorado with systems to help solve their unique cold storage applications issues involving research viruses and other medical-related biological samples stored inside ultra cold temperature freezers and dewars. After an application review, we recommended the use of our Model T Sentry 140 temperature alarm/monitoring systems and this is what they purchased and what we installed.
April 3, 2019 - Unique Integration of Model AMS Remote Ethernet Network Logger and Alarm Notification System with Existing Monitoring Modules.
Flexcon Industries is one of the leading manufacturers of pre-pressurized diaphragm water tanks in the world. They recently purchased a model AMS data logging system to work with existing Hampshire Controls monitor/alarm systems for continuous real-time monitoring and logging of various environmental conditions in their manufacturing processes.
For their application, Flexcon needed to continuously measure
eight temperature locations within their serpentine composite
convection oven while collecting temperature and humidity data
from various other manufacturing machines and related processing
materials. Manufacturing process control is critical.
To make this possible, we
installed an MPS-8 (with eight, type "K"
thermocouple sensors located within specific regions of the
oven) and one, special TT-150HT monitoring module (that collects
temperature and humidity at another location) were integrated
into the Model AMS.
All data is transmitted from the modules to the AMS via Wi-Fi. With complete data collection and logging, they can now ensure ideal manufacturing process conditions exist and they can also analyze their data to continuously improve their processes.
March 5, 2019 - Laboratory Research Integration of Model AMS Remote Ethernet Network Logger/Alarm Notification System with Monitoring Modules.
The laboratory at the Harvard Chan School of Public Health advanced biomedical research lab is currently using an AMS logger/alarm notification system along with six, Hampshire Controls Model TT-200 battery-operated temperature transmitters with type "T" thermocouples.
The TT-200s send data via Wi-Fi to the AMS system for continuous temperature logging and alarm indication of all six of their liquid nitrogen dewars. The LN2 freezers store their biological samples used for their research.
These biological samples must be stored within a safe “cold chain” temperature range in order to ensure that ongoing research can be effectively conducted.
