This electronically driven automatic blast gate system is an optional upgrade to the iVac Pro Wireless Dust Collection Control System, bringing one-touch simplicity to managing your dust collection airflow. Simply turn on your power tool, and the iVac Pro Tool (42891, sold separately) sends a wireless signal to automatically open the corresponding Pro Blast Gate, and another signal to the iVac Pro Switch (42897, sold separately), which turns on your dust collector. Turn off your power tool, and after a short interval to clear dust, the blast gate closes and the dust collector powers down. This automation prevents the irritating dust clouds that result from forgetting to open a blast gate, and the reduced suction that results from forgetting to close it afterward. The system also ensures that at least one gate stays open when the vacuum is on to prevent overloading the motor on your dust collector. Prevents the irritating dust clouds you get from forgetting to open the blast gateReduces the potential for accidents from reaching for blast gates while machines are runningOptimizes the suction in your system by keeping a minimum number of gates open at one timeBlast gates can also be controlled via the handheld wireless remote or manually with the toggle switchKit includes two blast gates for 4'' hose, two 115v AC adapters, a wireless remote control and a manual toggle switchUp to eight blast gates can operate on one systemAdditional blast gates available separately (52504)RF range: 40'
