A short feature about  Tripper Position Switch

The model TPS "Tripper Position Switch" is designed to indicate when the tripper of a shuttle conveyor is located on a multiple discharge point and will "trip" or activate the dumper when signaled.  This unit is rugged and durable for adverse field conditions and is commonly used in the coal and metal & non-metal mining industries.

This device is a heavy-duty style control with two SP/DT microswitches rated for 20 amps at 120 VAC, 240 VAC, or 480 VAC.  The switch actuation is bi-directional, and the roller orientation is field adjustable with a simple hex bolt adjustment.  The white acetyl roller is bi-directional, measures 3 inches in diameter by 1-5/8 inches wide, and will withstand pressure, wear, and chemical attack.  The housing is a rugged cast aluminum enclosure rated for NEMA 4 weatherproof, or NEMA 7/9 explosion-proof.   Black epoxy powder coating is optional.
