Grain Probe Features
Electric power ensures fast, silent and efficient movement of the probe. All motors are mounted in the probe base for easy access and maintenance. Totally enclosed directional motors are reversing with a built-in torque-limiting device for overload protection, eliminating excessive wear and downtime. The air motor is automatically timed to operate with the downward probing cycle, may also be operated manually.
Compact control can be adapted for use either inside or outside the scale house. Fingertip touch easily operates all functions. Indicator lights also allow the operator to control traffic at the probing area. Low voltage control engages each operation with switching relays located on the mast of the probe. No special wiring required, power cord simply plugs into 110/120V, 30A outlet.
Electric Control System
All relays, transformers, overload controls and all terminal connections are located in one box on the mast for easy access. Operation with the remote control is all 24V for safety. The all-electric chain drive assures smooth, accurate control and has adjustable stops.
Two-way Stop & Go lights help control traffic flow on and off the scale. Lights are mounted for straight-ahead or rear-view vision by truck operators, and are all controlled with the same hand-held control used for probe operation.
Flood Lights & Signal Horn
The lights are aimed at the probing location and are mounted at the top of the mast to provide lighting for nighttime operation. Button-controlled signal horn lets operator alert the driver and control traffic.
