Topic tags/keywords: question dust collector remote switch

Hello All,
My dust collector remote switch is defective and of course it’s a long weekend so I can’t contact the manufacturer until Tuesday. The DC still works but now I don’t have the luxury of using my remotes. It’s a 220volt system sold by Oneida and made by NHD Industrial out of Taiwan. The batteries in the remotes are at their stated voltage (12V) and their LED lights up when the start or stop buttons are depressed so I’m certain the receiver on the magnetic switch has gone bad. Has anyone here ever replaced only the receiver portion of a remote switch? I will see if NHD sells only that part but I wanted to know if this has happened to anyone else and if they were successful in replacing just the defective component.
Thanks in advance for your replies, Marc

If you go to clear vue’s page they sell a 5hp contact relay. This is similar to what I used with a throw away remote from the local BB. The relay handles the 220, and the cheap remote turns the relay on and off. The ones I bought has 1 remote and three receivers. I use 1on the big DC, 1 on the rotary phase converter, and 1 on the small DC for the miter saw on the other side of the shop. If you ad it up it was a lot cheaper than buying 3 remote set ups and when they give out another remote kit is only $15.

I use the setup Shawn described after having 2 commercial remotes go bad. That said, I tore the reciever out of my Oneida switch to use it on other stuff….so I have to think it can be replaced. But your battery can show voltage and still be dead, so try a fresh battery first. If you can replace the receiver I’d bet it will cost more than switching to the contact and cheap remote. So give that some thought.
