Ask Hytrol: How to Set the Speed on the E24i™ Motor

Posted by Hytrol Training on Jul 19, 2017 9:38:00 AM

In today's Ask Hytrol video, we're going to demonstrate how to set the speed using the dip switches on the E24i™ motor.  There are six numbered dip switches located on the E24i motor. When the dip switches are aligned on the right, they are in the ON position. When they are aligned on the left, they are in the OFF position. Switches 1 and 2 are read only at power up, which means any changes to the switches will not work until the power is cycled to the E24i™.

Ask Hytrol: How to Upgrade the Switch on the ProSort 400

Posted by Jonathan Noell on May 18, 2017 10:50:00 AM

 

In today's Ask Hytrol, we're going to discuss how to upgrade your ProSort 400's switch to the latest configuration. First, remove the hex bolt on the rubber bushing mounting bracket. Disconnect the green airlines from the fittings on the cylinder. Loosen the jam nut on the cylinder rod so that the cylinder may unscrew from the rod end. Unscrew the rubber bushing from the cylinder's base. Once the old bushing is removed, add a drop of thread locker onto the new bushing stud and screw the stud tightly into the back of the cylinder. Hytrol recommends allowing the thread locker to cure for approximately 15 minutes.
