Overview: The HS689 Control Unit Switch Assembly is designed for use with a flexible auger feed system where control of an auger drive motor is required. Power to the auger drive motor is done through feed pressure being applied to a diaphragm coupled to an electrical switch internal to the control unit housing. This switch in conjunction with a multi pole relay is used to control the auger drive motor by turning off the power when feed is present and turning on the power when feed has been removed from the control unit housing. Auxiliary switch inputs provide a series circuit that allows the Control Unit Switch Assembly to be controlled by a variety of methods including hopper level, drop tube, proximity and various other control devices found in feed systems. The sensitivity of the electrical switch is not adjustable. ELECTRICAL RATING : 1 ½ HP @ 230VAC MAX, 1 PHASE A red indicator light on the side of the switch housing will illuminate when the diaphragm has been pressed (MOTOR OFF) and the switch has been activated.The ON/OFF switch is used to enable or disable the Control Unit.
