In Detail

This controller enables automation of your dust extraction system, giving more convenient working and saving both electricity and heat (when venting externally). Sensors are attached to each motor and then connected into the controller. The sensors detect the magnetic field generated when a machine's motor is switched on and the dust extractor is then automatically started.
The controller can connect up to five machines but, by adding Auto-Expand units, any number of machines can be added. Each Auto-Expand unit will accommodate an additional five motors. The Auto-Extract controller is available in 230V 1ph 13A or 16A. These units operate the extractor directly, you will need to bypass the original switch system. Sensors are available separately, depending on the length of cable required. Additional accessories include a Sensor Switch which allows a machine sensor to be disabled when dust extraction is not always required on a particular machine. Made in Axminster with UK sourced components.

NB: A sensor cable is not supplied and will need to be purchased separately. Not suitable for extraction units fitted with automatic filter cleaning systems.

Axminster repaired the unit :-)

I am delighted to say that Axminster Electronics repaired my Auto-Extract unit. It is as good as new now and once again doing a great job in the workshop.

blows fuse

My unit just keeps blowing the fuse. Tried upgrading the breaker, tried changing the plugs for 15a, it just blows it, sometimes starts working for 10 mins but always blows the fuse in the end

Today I switched the Auto-Extract Controller and it was dead, absolutely dead. It wasn't the fuse, or supply of power to it, just dead.
For £190 I expect a bit of electronics to last longer than 4 years. Therefore my initial 5 star ratings drop to poor value and bad quality.
It's great - when it works...

Great idea

I've just bought one of these because I am tired of having to switch the extractor on or off all the time when I am cutting a number of pieces or having it running while i change machine settings.
It's very easy to set up, works straight away and is easy to set up with a number of machines.
