Takes the guesswork out of when to empty your dust collector or pre-separator’s dust bin. This optical sensor uses infrared technology to automatically detect when the dust bin is full and alerts the user with a high visibility strobe light - perfect for busy and noisy work environments.
The Dust Sentry is ideal for use with wood dusts and other general dust collection applications. Installs easily to the lid of any shape/size dust bin and can be adjusted to detect any preset fill level (4" to 6" from the lid is recommended). Strobe indicator light can be mounted up to 8 feet away from the sensor for maximum visibility in the shop.
The Sentry Keeps Watch So You Never Have To Worry About Overfilling Your Drum!
When you're hard at work in your shop, the last thing you want to discover is an overfilled dust container and corresponding dust-packed filter. Oneida Air Systems' bin level sensors are designed to automatically alert you when your dust container is full and needs to be emptied. Our adjustable sensors work with any nearly any type of waste material, wet or dry!
How Does It Work?
The Dust Sentry uses adjustable Infrared Sensing Technology to detect when the material in the drum has reached a custom preset fill-level. Once this level is reached, the Sentry flashes a bright red strobe light that can be mounted anywhere within 8ft of the drum. This lets you know exactly when the container needs to be emptied, taking the guesswork out of dust collection. You'll never again have to unpack a cyclone and filter full of chips because you forgot to empty the drum!
