It is not affected by dust or material build up. It can be used as a slack/broken chain detector when installed as shown below. The sensor has an adjustable sensing range (1” – 4”) and an LED helps with field adjustment. Using the mounting block supplied, cut a 4” diameter hole in the sheet metal and position the mounting block so that the sensor is centered on this hole. Alternatively, the sensor and mount can be installed on a stainless steel plate without drilling a hole for the sensor. In this case, the sensor will not be affected because the sensing field can pass through the stainless steel plate. WARNING - Make sure that there is no ferrous steel (such as the machine’s frame) within the sensing field. WDA Sensor (WDA3V34C) WDA High Temperature Sensor (HTAS1V34) Target or Bolt – 3/8” dia 1 – 3” WDA - High Power Reluctance Sensor Sensitivity Adjustment LE D Speed Relay Contacts change state when sensor stops detecting target or bolt. Plastic Paddle Steel Flight OPTION 1 Sensor Detecting Bolt Installed on the Paddle Under normal running conditions, the target bolt passes through the sensor’s field and a pulse is sent to the speed relay. If the chain becomes slack, the target bolt will drop below the field and the pulses will stop, causing the relay contact to change state. OPTION 2 Sensor Detecting Steel Flight Under normal running conditions, the steel flight passes through the sensor’s field and a pulse is sent to the speed relay. If the chain becomes slack, the steel flight will drop below the field and the pulses will stop, causing the relay contact to change state. OPTION 3 Sensor Waiting to Detect Steel Flight Under normal running conditions, the steel flight is out of the sensor’s field, so no pulses are sent to the speed relay. If the chain becomes slack, the steel flight comes into the sensor’s field and a pulse is sent to the speed relay, causing it to change state.
