The Dust Switch from Sternvent Co. Inc. mounts next to the circuit breaker circuit breaker, electric device that, like a fuse, interrupts an electric current in a circuit when the current becomes too high. The advantage of a circuit breaker is that it can be reset after it has been tripped; a fuse must be replaced after it has been used panel in a woodworking shop. It turns on the dust collector when a machine is activated by sensing the flow of current from the breaker. When no machines are on, the dust collector automatically shuts off. Sternvent says it is ideal for small production shops, maintenance facilities and high school wood shops.
