Current Sensors in woodworking machines run vacuum fans to clear sawdust and debris

For clean finishing, accurate work and safer surfaces, woodworking equipment and factory installations use Airotronics Current Sensors. When the CS senses current to power on a cutting, joining, planing or finishing machine, the relay output turns on an integrated vacuum and fan system.

Woodworking machine sawdustShavings, chips and sawdust are cleared away as the work is done. In commercial applications, the Current Sensor is built into the control panel for cutting tools, saws, routers and more.
An on-board LED indicates sensed current through the toroid. When the current exceeds 1Amp, the relay turns on the fan, with a 1.5hp motor powered by 120VAC line voltage.

Airotronics Current Sensor DiagramAirotronics CS is an over- or under-current sensing control. Toroidal sensing means no break in the power wiring.
The combination of the over current LED, current adjustment, and percentage trip adjustment provides easy, accurate setting.
