Programmable Motion Control features 2 signal set points.

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. Read More
