Automated Dust Collector

At our October 2017 regular meeting I demonstrated an automated dust collector system that I build for my home shop.  This system includes current sensors and pneumatic controlled blast gates on each tool.  Everything is controlled by a Arduino based custom controller.

There is more to this topic than can be covered in 45 minutes.  So I’ve posted the slide deck and Arduino Sketch.

  • Slide Deck – MS PowerPoint .PPTX file (42Mb)
  • Arduino Sketch – This is an Arduino .INO file which can be opened in the Arduino IDE or Notepad++
