    ELECTRONIC NO-FLOW MONITOR FOR DIVIDER BLOCKS




    OPERATING PRINCIPLE

    The Kenco solid state Electronic No-Flow Monitor is designed to provide protection against compressor and engine failure. The device monitors lubricant flow from the lube oil supply to the different lubrication points at the divider block. The monitor, which is wired to a proximity switch, senses an electronic pulse, which is an indication of one complete cycle of the lubrication system. An LED (light emitting diode) will pulse every time the lubrication system cycles. The adjustable shutdown timer will send a signal to sound an alarm or shut down the system if the monitor does not receive a pulse within the allotted time (adjustable between 30 seconds and 2 minutes). Best of all, the Electronic No-Flow Monitor can be mounted anywhere (not just on the divider block). The solid state design contains 3 field replaceable lithium batteries with a battery life of 3-5 years.


    FEATURES

    • Solid state protection for mechanical lubrication systems
    • Easy to install and operate-No programming necessary
    • LED cycle indicator

    SPECIFICATIONS AND WIRING



    TERMINAL DESCRIPTIONS






    Terminal 7.........................Aux. Out (-)
    Terminal 6.........................Aux Out (+)
    Terminal 5...Input (-) Proximity Switch
    Terminal 4...Input (+) Proximity Switch
    Terminal 3.........................N.O. Output
    Terminal 2.........................N.C. Output
    Terminal 1.........................Common (-)






    • Terminal 7 ­ This terminal is the common ground connection for the Auxiliary Output Pulse.
    • Terminal 6 ­ This is the (+) side of the Auxiliary Output Pulse. This pulse follows the input pulse.
    • Terminal 5 ­ This is the common ground for the Proximity Switch Input.
    • Terminal 4 ­ This terminal is for the (+) connection for the Proximity Switch Input. If the circuit does not receive a switch closure on this terminal within the timer cycle, an alarm condition will occur.
    • Terminal 3 ­ This is the Normally Open connection for the alarm output. If the unit goes into an alarm condition this connection will short to ground.
    • Terminal 2 ­ This is the Normally Closed connection for the alarm output. This connection will be shorted to ground until there is an alarm condition, then it will open.
    • Terminal 1 ­ This is the Common Ground connection for the alarm outputs.
    • J2 - This is the pulse indicator that will illuminate the low current LED each time the proximity switch receives a pulse from the divider block.
