Model 8651 Level Control Switch

Model 8651

All parts feeding hoppers can use an Automatic Level Control Switch (ADI Model 8651) to maintain a predetermined level of parts in the feeder bowl. This product is independent from a storage hopper and is used to remotely operate hoppers, conveyors, and other electrical devices.

The complete Level Control Switch assembly consists of an 18-inch rigid support column, an adjustable-height cast aluminum support arm, and a free-moving sensor arm attached to the switch body. The end of the sensor arm is shaped like a paddle which rides on top of the parts in a feeder bowl. A low level of parts causes the sensor arm to rotate down, activating the Parts Level Control Switch contacts. This allows current to flow to the vibratory hopper, turning it on and initiating part movement.
