Rotary Paddle Switch
The ROTALOG Rotary Paddle Switch by Mucon is designed to signal the presence or absence of bulk materials in silos and hoppers as well as for blockage detection in conveyor chutes. Perfect 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. Available in either side or top mounted models, the ROTALOG Rotary Paddle Switch has proven to be one of the most reliable signal point level indicators on the market, the company says.
