Programmable Motion Control features 2 signal set points.
Press Release Summary:
July 29, 2014 - By continuously monitoring rotary speed, MSD-800 protects indoor/outdoor rotating equipment from damage. Unit alerts operator of change in speed by sending signal to control unit which can sound alarm and/or shutdown equipment completely. Installed remotely, control unit can be programmed to indicate 2 under-speed points or 2 over-speed points, or 1 of each. Speed sensor, installed directly to shaft of rotating equipment, is enclosed in weatherproof and dust-tight cast aluminum housing.
Original Press Release
New Programmable Motion Control with Two Signal Set Points
Press release date: July 23, 2014
The Model MSD is comprised of two different components, a control unit and a speed sensor. The Model MSD-800 control unit has a simple set up menu that can be programmed to indicate two under-speed points or two over-speed points, or one of each. The control unit acts as a digital tachometer that constantly displays the actual rotary speed of the equipment being monitored. The control unit is installed remotely in a control panel where it is free from dust, dirt and vibration and allows the operator to monitor equipment from one central location.
The Model MSD-1 speed sensor, which installs directly to the shaft of the rotating equipment to be monitored, is enclosed in a rugged cast aluminum housing that is designed to withstand harsh environments. The sensor detects motion by means of a precision metal disc with slots on its periphery generating electronic pulses as the disc rotates past an infra-red light source. These pulses are transmitted to the MSD-800 control unit where the signal is analyzed and the relays are activated or deactivated at preset signal speeds. The sensor enclosure is weatherproof, dust-tight and meets NEMA Type 3S, 4, 4X classifications. For hazardous environments, explosion proof sensors are available that meet NEMA Type 7, Class I Groups C and D and NEMA Type 9, Class II, Groups F and G classifications.
