This system creates an electronic link between your workshop dust collector and specific power tools, automatically triggering the vacuum to run only while the tools are in use. Two components are used: a transmitter that connects to a power tool, and a switchbox that is coupled to a dust collector. You simply plug any power tool into the transmitter, and plug the transmitter into an outlet.
As soon as the tool begins drawing power, the transmitter sends a radio signal to the switch box up to 40' away, activating the vacuum. When the tool stops running, the transmitter sends a shut-off signal to the vacuum after a programmable delay of 0, 5, 15 or 45 seconds to ensure the collection system is cleared.
Used with up to eight separate transmitters, the switch box circuitry records the status of each tool so that the final tool to shut off triggers the vacuum to stop – handy in shops where more than one person is working. Each switch box and transmitter has its own binary control switch, so you can set individual transmitters to work with a specific switch box only. This allows multiple switch boxes to be used in close proximity (up to four maximum) without interference, for shops with multiple dust collection systems.
Switches and transmitters have a 4-5/8" square by 1-7/8" thick ABS housing, and are available in 115V (15A) and 240V (20A) versions. TUV-certified for use in Canada and the USA. An efficient system for running your dust collection network in unison with your power tools.
The 240V Switch Box and Transmitter are not stocked at our retail stores, but can be ordered for pick-up at our stores.
