STEP-A-Matic SML Rotary Level Control

STEP-A-Matic SML1 Rotary Level Control
The STEP-A-MATIC SML1, designed & manufactured by SYNATEL, is a patented, rotary paddle level control suitable for  powders & granular solids.
High/low level output switch. LED output state indication.
24V dc, 90-260V ac supply connections in same unit. Volt free, change over relay output.  Adjustable timer to prevent false signalling from ‘splashing’ materials.
The STEP-A-MATIC uses a patented , unique stepper motor drive instead of the traditional synchronous motor. This utilises a direct drive eliminating the need for gearboxes & clutches, and makes the drive virtually indestructible, it also allows the motor to rotate in both direction, to avoid compaction of light materials. The paddle also ‘shakes at the end of it’s rotation cycle to discard clinging material. Variable torque setting allows one paddle to suit virtually all applications, and paddles can be extended upto 2m in length. Torque & Rotation are monitored for fail-to-safe operation.
