Electrically driven 4" Metal Automatic Blast Gate. Installed between the dust exhaust of a power tool and the main dust collector ducting. Includes metal 4″ diameter blast gate and approved power supply
Dust collector blast gates let you control a dust collection system’s vacuum pressure in order to achieve maximum suction at a desired tool station. Here’s how they work:
With today’s high efficiency dust collection systems, multiple blast gates can be opened at the same time. In some instances, it’s even recommended that more than one gate be opened to prevent a system from literally collapsing. So, how do you take account of all of these issues in a modern, well equipped workshop?
The iVAC Pro family of automated dust collector blast gates lets you control vacuum flows precisely and automatically. All of our blast gates are electrically driven and programmable. There are three methods of controlling an iVAC Pro Blast Gate:
Fully Automatic: when the power tool is turned on, the iVAC Tool Interface (Pro Tool Plus Auto Sensor) sends a wireless signal instructing the iVAC Pro Switch to turn on the Dust Collector, and this same signal is used to instruct the blast gate to open. When the power tool turns off it instructs the blast gate to close.
iVAC Pro Remote: in this mode an iVAC Pro Remote is used to send the Open and Close commands to the pro blast gate.
Remotely from a wired cable: in this mode the operation of a toggle switch on a wired cable will instruct the blast gate to open or close.
Installation is straightforward and each blast gate is powered from a 115Vac UL/CSA approved AC adaptor.
You can choose from 4″ plastic, 4″ metal or 6″ metal blast gate versions. The metal versions are typically used where fireproof materials are required in critical ducting paths.
The Blast Gate Manual Wired Remote cable (MWR cable) is a 3M (10’) cable and can be used with any of the iVAC Pro automated blast gates.
It allows the blast gate to be manually opened or closed from a toggle switch.
Instructions for use are in the iVAC Pro Blast Gate User Guide.
