Overview: The HS809 Hopper Feed Level Control is used to interface a proximity switch mounted low or high in a feed hopper with fill augers or feed line augers. The HS809 uses a 2-wire proximity switch as the input and provides two Normally Open dry contacts as the output. The HS809 features a built-in 1 -1023 seconds ON delay timer to prevent short cycling. The typical application for the HS809 is to control the feed level in a feed hopper by controlling the fill auger providing feed to the hopper with a second HS809 controlling the feed line motor pulling feed out of the feed hopper. This configuration prevents feed lines from ever running out of feed. To control the feed level in a feed hopper, two (2) HS809 will be needed to control the upper proximity switch and the lower proximity switch.
