The Rotalog rotary paddle switch is designed to signal the presence or absence of bulk materials in silos and hoppers, as well as for blockage detection in conveyor chutes. Ideal for dry bulk solids, including powders, chips, and granules, the Rotalog detects the product when the rotation of the paddles inside the container is impeded. A control signal is detected and after approximately half a second, the motor circuit switches off. All active parts become stationary, resulting in long motor life and no paddle wear. The Rotalog rotary paddle switch is available in either side- or top-mounted models.
