Current Sensing Units

Metering The Flow

When scrap comes off the line in fits and starts, Current Sensing Units can optimize hogging by providing a steady stream of material. Available for all Montgomery Horizontal Feed Hogs, they can be interlocked with Vibrating Conveyors, Powered Feed Rolls, and other discharge equipment.

The Current Sensing Unit is a control device that automatically meters the amperage load of the Hog motor. When the motor reaches a field-adjusted threshold, the Current Sensing Unit throttles the infeed equipment to avoid over-feeding. Additionally, when the Hog motor amperage falls back below its preset level, the Current Sensing Unit automatically restarts any connected infeed and discharge equipment.
