The Hopper Sensor detects the presence of coal near the sensor. When coal feeds from the hopper such that the level of coal is below the switch, the Auger will engage and fill the hopper to a point just above the switch. This sensor is for Coal Guns with automatic augers only.
There are 2 different sensors used. They are NOT interchangeable, but can be quickly identified by color. This one (see photo) is gray colored.
Order this item if your sensor has failed. If you are retrofitting a Coal Gun for auger feed, please call or email for assistance:
