Wise Buys: Dust Collector Remote Controls
Long Ranger Multigate System, LRMSET220
110-volt model #LRMSET110
220-volt model (shown)
I've had a remote control on my 3-hp dust collector for years, but -- just like with the TV in my living room -- the remote often comes up missing. With Penn State's MultiGate System there's no need for a remote because the metal blast gates turn the collector on and off when I open and close them, something to be done anyway. It took about two hours to install the control unit and five gates and connect them with 22-gauge wire. It's really simple, even if you don't do much electrical work. I like that the gates have an open slot, so they push stray chips out the back upon closing rather than causing the gate to jam. The base system comes with the relay box, one gate, and 100' of wire. Extra gates cost only $11 each, and an extra 100' of wire costs $10.
