M300 Slipswitch

Underspeed Sensor

M3001V10AI, M3005V10AI

The M300 Slipswitch is a simple inductive shaft speed monitoring device. The self-contained unit has a single set point, which signals when the shaft speed has dropped by 20% of normal running speed. It is used for detecting dangerous slow downs and underspeed on conveyors, bucket elevators, airlocks, mixers, fans, grinders and many other machines. An inductive sensing device located in the nose of the M300 enclosure will detect a metal target. This target can be an existing bolt head or device attached to a shaft. During installation the M300 is set to the normal machine shaft RPM by calibrating with the magnet provided. The internal microprocessor sets the underspeed output to operate at exactly 20% below normal machine shaft RPM. This allows the M300 output to be used for automatic shutdown of machinery during dangerous underspeed or belt slip conditions.
