Conveyor Components Co. has added a TPS (tripper position switch) to its product line of belt alignment controls. The model TA-2 TPS is designed to indicate when the tripper of a shuttle conveyor is located on a multiple discharge point. This device is a heavy-duty style control with two SP/DT micro switches rated for 20 amps at 120 VAC, 240 VAC, or 480 VAC. The switch actuation is bi-directional, and the roller orientation is field adjustable with a simple hex bolt adjustment. The white acetyl roller is bi-directional, measures 3 in. in diam by 1 5/8 in. wide, and will withstand pressure, wear, and chemical attack. The housing is a rugged cast aluminum enclosure rated for NEMA 4 weatherproof, or NEMA 7/9 explosion proof. Epoxy coating is available as an option.
