Dust extractor control unit 230v 13A

Our new modular control system was developed following feedback from craftspeople who were looking for an automated way of controlling their dust extractor. 

To create your own customised system, first select the appropriate control unit from the 230v 13A, 230v 16A or 110v 16A options. A clever unit that remotely controls a motor starter for larger extractors is also available. Further guidance on the complete dust extraction system can be found here.

Next select at least one sensor. Unlike other brands which rely on magnetic sensors being carefully placed onto the tool's motor, the system simply plugs into the power cable between the tool and supply. Any mix of sensors can be combined, enabling use across 110v, 230v ad 415v supplies.

In addition to sensors, the system can also be triggered by a remote control module and manual power on switch. A sensor isolator switch and high visibility indicator module are also available. 

All of the modules are simply connected to the control unit using a small signal cable. Every module has 2 communication sockets, enabling the units to be daisy chained together. 


  • Robust Italian made Gewiss enclosure.

  • Switch to enable the dust extractor to be set to off, on or automatic.

  • LED indicator to confirm the power supply (green) and whether the system has been triggered (red).

  • Pre-set power off delay of 10 seconds between removal the last trigger and the extractor turning off, in order to clear ducting. This may be adjusted by the user by removing the unit cover and turning a control knob.

  • 1m H07RN-F 1.5mmsq industrial quality harsh environment rubber cable with 13A tough Permaplug. 1m flex between the unit and 13A socket. 

  • Maximum switching load 230v, 13A.

  • One of the most common issues with vacuum switches, is that with prolonged use, the relay burns out due to the surge in power each time the vacuum motor starts. To overcome this issue, the unit is fitted with a robust high power relay.

  • If a no volt release switch (NVR) is fitted to the extractor, this will need to be bypassed (instructions provided on request).

  • Dimensions L150mm x W120mm x D75mm (approximate).

  • May be wall mounted.

  • Can be supplied with any length of cable or alternative plug/socket on request.

  • PAT tested.

Advantages of an automated system:

  • Reduces dust, improving the workshop environment.

  • Saves power by running the extractor only when needed.

  • Reduces noise.

  • Reduces heating bills (where extractor vents outside).
