PPI’s Magnetic Speed Switch

PPI’s Speed Switch Design is setting the bar for ease of installation in the conveyor monitoring field. The innovative magnetic coupling system eliminates the conventional drill and tap of the past. Simply snap the sensor into place on the shaft, connect wiring and installation is complete. The magnetic coupling not only makes installation a breeze, it allows the unit to break away from the shaft if struck by errant debris, minimizing equipment damage compared to rigid designs. The Speed Switch Series offers a variety of different pulse outputs and accommodates shaft sizes from 1” in diameter and greater, making it very versatile.


Features and Benefits

  • Installs in seconds by utilizing a user friendly magnetic design to attach to the shaft
  • Reduces costly set up & installation time by eliminating the need for a drill and tap
