Topic tags/keywords: question

Anyone know of an Automatic Vacuum Switch made for a Delta 50-760 Dust Collector? I have tried iVac switch from Lee Valley Tools, but the 50-760 motor draws too much power and trips the breaker.

Delta 50-760: 1-1/2 HP , 120/240V (wired for 120V) , 1 Phase, 60Hz

Any help very much appreciated !!!

I used a jet remote switch – not automatic – but it has a key fob type control and it works fine.

It would be nice to have remote option available, but dust collector is outside in another room with 8” wall between. Tried remote option, but signal blocked by wall.

Out of curiosity, any idea how much that jet remote switch costs?

You can always wire the small switch to a larger contactor or motor starter in the vacuum circuit.

Sorry, I’m no help with the switch but….on another subject….how did you enlarge the chop saw hood for your slider from the one designed with the plenum that you were using as a reference model, but was built for a non-slider. And….how’s it working for you. I just purchased a Ryobi 10” slider and want to get a dust collector hood made for it before I get distracted.

I hook mine into two separate circuits. It works fine then.

Have your say...
