Shredder / Extrusion controller

Features

  • Auto-Reverse. Supports 3 different methods : IR Sensor (recommended), hall sensor and proximity sensor
  • Overheat protection
  • Error and status feedback via LEDs
  • Reset button
  • Direction switch
  • Hopper sensors
  • Emergency switch
  • Semi automatic extrusion control

Behaviours

  • If jamming occurred 3 times, it stops all and goes in fatal mode, indicated by red blinking LED. In this case you push reset and/or switch to stop and then again forward after un-jamming the shredder or extrusion
  • If power comes back whilst direction is still set to forward, it waits til the user switches to stop and explicit switches to forward again
  • If hopper sensors are installed, the motor will stop when opening the hopper
  • Uninterrupted shredding will stop after one hour automatically. In later releases this time will be exteneded according to measured activity via HAL and/or speed sensor. That's a safety feature in case the operator got a heart attack, etc…
  • If set to extrusion mode, the motor won't start before the barrel didn't heat up for at least some time.
