KB62: Three-probe controls

Category: Control Considerations | Updated: 6/12/2007 8:20:31 AM | Owner: The Professor | Read: 5084 (Last: 9/23/2019 11:20:02 AM)

Resolution

Speed has traditionally been controlled by rider arms, electric eyes and more recently by ultrasonic sensors. Low voltage probes can also control the loop, high speed at the top probe, low speed in the middle and stop at the bottom. This provides a ready visual setting of loop limits without the weight of a loop arm or expense and sensitivity of electric eyes or ultrasonic sensors .
