Micron Computer Setworks: How To Integrate

Over time, a common query from our valued customers has been, "How can I install computer setworks on my bandmill?"

SW-350-PRO computer setworks

Here’s a simple step-by-step guide:

1. Installing the SPRT-500 Sensor:

The SPRT-500, a wired sensor, is engineered to precisely measure the displacement of your sawing head.

  • Installation Simply position the sensor atop your sawing head, and connect the cable ring to the saw head. All the essential brackets and bolts are included in the set.

  • Customization The sensor wire's length is adjustable based on your needs. Specify your desired length when placing an order via our website or through a phone call.

  • Durability Crafted from robust metal, the SPRT-500 sensor is purpose-built for sawmill conditions, guaranteeing accuracy and reliability.



2. Setting Up the Micron Control Panel:

This is where technology harmonizes with your sawmill's operations. Micron computer setworks can control a wide range of lifting motors, including DC, AC, hydraulic motors, etc.

  • Mounting Along with the control panel, we provide screws to ensure you can securely mount it onto a plate, making it both stable and accessible.

  • For DC Motors with a Toggle Switch (or Rocker Switch) After integrating a winch relay, simply connect your existing toggle switch to this relay. The Micron setworks will efficiently handle movement, allowing you to use your toggle switch just as before.

  • For Sawing Heads with a Winch Just connect the winch relay to the winch, and the computer setworks effortlessly takes care of the winch's positioning.

  • For Hydraulic Motors Link the Micron setworks to the existing electromechanical valves, and the system will work in tandem with the valves already present on your sawmill.

  • For DC Motors (under 40 Amps) Our specially designed SW-350-PRO-NRWD setworks, perfect for sawmills like Norwood, is the way to go. This variant comes with a built-in relay-based driver for the DC motor. Should you ever face relay issues, replacements are conveniently accessible.

  • For Asynchronous Motors (controlled by contactors) Effortlessly connect the setworks either to the contactors' coils or directly to the up/down buttons.

3. Connecting the SPRT-500 Sensor to the Control Panel:

Once the sensor is secured, it's a matter of linking it to the control panel using the preconnected connector, a staple in models like the SW-350-PRO. Think of it as plugging a charger into a socket (very easy).

4. Powering Up:

The Micron setworks panel is compatible with a 12-24 VDC range. Depending on your setup, draw power either from a car battery fitted to your band sawmill or from an AC to DC converter if your sawmill runs on electricity.

5. Configuring the Setworks:

After installation, there's a brief initial setup. Adjust essential parameters like minimum and maximum height, among a few others. This usually takes about 10 minutes. Plus, our computer setworks boasts a special embedded machine-learning algorithm. This intelligent feature learns the parameters of the up/down movement of the saw head, ensuring precise and accurate positioning.

Conclusion:

Micron computer setworks is synonymous with adaptability and ease. Whether you have an old or new band sawmill, this technological enhancement assures a boost in precision and operational efficiency. With our guide, integrating Micron computer setworks into your operations is a smooth journey.

There's no need to invest in a brand new sawmill to enjoy these advanced features. Continue using your familiar, trusted sawmill – the one you know inside out, down to every bolt – and simply upgrade it with Micron computer setworks.

The most universal setworks version is SW-350-PRO.
