Pulse Control is a means of controlling lubrication based on machine cycles rather than a timer. Our Pulse Control system tells our unit to lubricate only when a certain amount of activity has been reached by the intermittent operation of your application.
ATS has developed an easy to use “Pulse Counter” (PC) for lubricating equipment that has intermittent operation. This control, which is customer programmed by selecting a DIP switch setting, activates the lubricator when a desired number of machine cycles has been reached, rather than by a time interval. Mounted near the machine, a motion sensor counts the pulses generated by a magnet, which is attached to a repetitively moving part of the machine, as it passes by the sensor. A signal is then sent to the circuit board, which maintains the pulse count and trigger the dispense cycle once the desired pulse count is achieved. A BLUE “LED” will flash every time the magnet passes the sensor. This indicates that the magnetic sensor is working. Example of standard settings: Switch #1, 25 pulse counts, switch #2, 50 pulse counts, switch #3, 100 pulse counts, etc. Custom factory programs are also available.
ATS’ Pulse Control system was originally meant for Wind Lubrication. It is similar to our Motion Control system. They differ, in that the Pulse Control is meant for unschedulable intermittent function of machinery, while the Motion Control system is meant for machinery that runs for the work day, and shuts off overnight.
