Heavy Duty. Reversing Air Break Cam Controller / Masters with joystick operating handle Maximum working voltage 500V A, C. 3 phase 50 cycles. Maximum continuous current 40 amps maximum number of notches 6 on either side. A greater number of notches can be provided for special purpose controllers if so required.
The housing of controllers is made of heavy gauge sheets steel suitably reinforced to give exceptional rigidity which is essential for satisfactory operation. The Cam Shaft is mounted in the housing, on moulded bushes (bearing) of synthetic material fixed to the front and rear Walls. These bearings do not require any lubrication whatsoever. The Cams themselves are moulded from the highest quality malemine and are accurately cut to correspond to the switching sequence. The Cams have an exceptionally long life.
Switching Element :
The body of the switching elements is made of high grade Malemine which is specially suited for heavy duty. The material is non-tracking and is capable of withstanding heavy arcing. The contacts themselves are made from high grade silver cadmium alloy which are continuously rated upto 40 amps. These contacts can interrupt a current of 70 amps at 500V a/c. when fitted with are barriers between adjacent contacts.
The same switching elements are used in both. Cam Controllers and Master Controllers. The switching capacity of the contacts when used for Master Controller operation is 15 amps at 440 ale on highly inductive loads and 2.5 amps on 220V DC when handling inductive loads. These switching capacities are fal' in excess of those actually required in practice, as such, replacement of Contacts for Master Controllers may not be necessary.
Two way Shunt Limit Switch is also to prevent over travel or over traverse. The Limit Switch is fitted with 2 numbers of silver cadmium bimetal (cladcon) tipped contacts which remain normally closed and supply power to the contactor coil in control panel. When the lever is moved over a projecting member fixed at a predetermined position on either side of the gantry, the power supply to the contactor coil is cut off. The contacts are rated for 10 amps, at 440 Volts A. C. 50 cycles supply system.
The housing of the limit switches is made of heavy gauge sheet steel suitably reinforced to give exceptional rigidity which is essential for satisfactory operation. The shaft is mounted in the housing on moulded bushes (bearing) of synthetic material fixed to the front and rear walls. These bearing do not require any lubrication whatsoever.
