The Electro-Sensors M100T and M5000T speed switches are complete rotation monitoring systems ideal for detecting unwanted slow down or stoppage of process equipment. These switches have a terminal block inside the housing for easy wiring connection and installation. The M100T has a relay setpoint range of between 5 and 100 RPM. The M5000T has a relay setpoint range of between 100 and 5000 RPM. This range is where the relay can be set to trip - both switches have the same operating range. These switches are commonly used to monitor drive trains, power-driven components, crushers, exhaust fans, screw conveyors, or tail pulleys on belt conveyors and elevator legs. In the event of rotational failure, such as broken drives, belt slippage, product overloads, clogs and jams, the SPDT 5-Amp control relay can be used to provide equipment shut down and/or alarm. This detection of a developing problem enables proactive maintenance to prevent equipment damage, product waste, and excessive down time.
