Required for operation (customer supplies):

  • 115 VAC, 1A, 60 Hz power (230 VAC, 1A, 50 Hz optional)
  • Air pressure: clean, filtered 80 psi (5.52 bar)
  • *Air volume: The air supply flow rate needs to be at least 5 Standard Cubic Feet per Minute (SCFM) = .142 cubic meters per minute (m³/min)(2.37 liters/sec.).
  • Air supply line diameter: .170″ (4.3mm) ID x .250″ OD (6.4mm)

* Note:  If sensors are added to the system control, to turn the feeder ON/OFF, (based on spring demand in tubing between feeder and escapement), the feeder must run a minimum time period of 1-2 minutes at a time. This is necessary to ensure the spring circulation and Blowback Feature (located in outlet nozzle) are functioning as designed.  Additionally, the feeder needs to be running to have airflow down the tubing to the escapement to deliver springs at the required spring feed rate. (Parts per minute)  If a sensor is located on the tubing, between the feeder and escapement, it should be located as close to the feeder nozzle exit as possible.  This will maximize the queue of springs in the 2-3 feet of tubing prior to the escapement.
