    Hi all,

    I’m just wondering if someone could help?
    I have my workbee setup with an Xsy-at1 vfd and an air cooled spindle. My dust extractor is set up though a 40 amp SSR so that when I open a blast gate is opened in my workshop, a micro switch is released starting my dust extractor.

    I’m using a workbee 1050 (1000x500) with the X-pro v4. Does anyone know if there Is there a way I could start my dust extractor automatically when my spindle starts, and shuts off when the cut finishes?

    TIA

    Wire an IoT Relay IOT Switching Relay Power Strip to the Spindle Output. When the Spindle is enabled, the IoT relay turns on. Plug the dust extractor into the IoT
