Each machine tool will have an associated Sensor. The Sensor detects the magnetic field generated by the current flowing in the machine’s power cable when the tool is on.
The Sensor is attached to the machine’s power cord with a clip. There is no need to do any electrical connections to the tool’s power wiring.
The attaching clip will accommodate various sizes of power cords. Installation takes less than a minute and no tools are needed.
Each machine’s sensor is connected to the associated Blast Gate with a six foot cable that is supplied. The cable’s connectors are the familiar telephone type that simply clips into the jacks on the sensor and gate.
