Efficient and Cost-Effective Solution for Small-scale Applications
Ecogate offers a versatile solution for shop owners who only need to control a few machines. Our Standalone Gates automatically open and close based on the workstation's activity sensor signal, providing a cost-effective and efficient way to manage airflow at specific machines without investing in a full control system.
How do Standalone Blast Gates work?
The Standalone Gate requires a 24V DC power supply connection and a workstation activity sensor connected to the "SIGNAL" input on the gate's standalone motor via low voltage cable. Volt or Current sensors are ideal for standalone operated gates.
The gate can also be wired to a dry contact on your machine's electrical panel or connected to simple timers or switches for machines without an electrical panel, like a chop saw. A central controller (greenBOX) is not needed to manage the opening and closing of this gate.
When should you get a Standalone Gate?
Standalone blast gates are perfect for large systems where you only want to manage airflow at a few machines. They can help redirect airflow to highly utilized machines for better suction when rarely-used machines are not in operation.
Standalone Ecogates are cost-effective for those who need just a few automated gates. Plus, you can try a standalone blast gate before investing in a complete system, as it can be easily integrated into our control systems by simply swapping out the motor.
When should you avoid Standalone Gates?
Avoid Standalone Gates if you plan to equip all machines in your dust collection system with them. A complete blast gate system without a central controller can cause duct settling or collapse. For a fully automated central dust collection system, we recommend installing a complete control system.
