I hate emptying the bin on my cyclone, but I hate even more when I forget to and fill my filters with dust and chips; basically means an evening wasted cleaning out chips from the filters and then multiple rounds of blowing the fine dust out. I have my cyclone in its own room to keep the noise down so I can’t see the bin…I originally had a Oneida Dust Sentry, it was ok but was inconsistent. After moving to a new shop and filling the filters 3 times in a row, I looked for an alternate.
There is a small but dedicated Clearvue owner community; this sensor was made by one of the Clearvue members, it worked so well that Clearvue has begun selling it on their website. I think that the guy still makes each of these sensors in his garage. Simple in design but works extremely well. Strobe light and loud siren goes off each time the bin is full. You can also wire it to automatically shut off the dust collector when the sensor is triggered.
Overall, expensive, but well worth the money.
