Model 8763 Level Control Device

Hoppers, both vibratory and conveyor, can be equipped with an automatic level control switch (Model 8761A) to maintain a predetermined level of parts in the feeder bowl. 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 optical sensor within the level device. This allows current to flow to the vibratory hopper or conveyor, turning it on until the part level in the feeder bowl is restored.
