Sync Function (Power take off)
By simply plugging in your power tool into the sync power outlet on the vacuum, the power tool will automatically control when the vacuum starts and stops. Select II on the vacuum switch. Connect the vacuum to a power outlet and it is ready to go.
As the power tool is switched on, both the power tool and the vacuum will start simultaneously. When the power tool is switched off, the vacuum continues for up to 8 seconds which clears any debris in the hose and the vacuum stops. Next time the power tool is started, the vacuum also starts. The operation of the sync is limited. For a 1600 watt vac, the max for power tool is 700 watt.
What is a vacuum cleaner with Power Take Off (PTO)?
A vacuum cleaner with Power Take Off is essentially a portable dust extraction unit, often used by carpenters, builders and renovators to capture wood and masonry dust before it spreads. Helping to reduce exposure to potentially hazardous dust, whilst also keeping homes and working environments clean.
Why is it important to extract building dust from your home or workspace?
It is important to consider proper dust collection when undertaking any building work, whether in a work environment or in your home. Repeated exposure to wood or masonry dust can be hazardous, causing anything from a flu-like illness, to chronic bronchitis, to cancer. Wood dust often contains bacteria and fungi, which, when airborne, can enter the lungs and cause illness and long term damage.
How to connect a power tool to a PTO vacuum cleaner?
Using a power tool or machine to sand, saw, router or drill can generate large volumes of potentially hazardous dust. Because of this, most dust generating tools have a port for collecting the dust. Simply connecting a hose from a dust extracting vacuum cleaner to this port, captures the dust generated directly at the point of origin.
