The Whirligig universal shaft sensor mount from 4B Elevator Components, Ltd., East Peoria, Illinois, U.S., features a three-in-one target/bracket/guard and is available for all industry standard cylindrical or DIN inductive sensors. The patent pending Whirligig can be used with 4B's M800 speedswitch (above) or its M300 slipswitch to monitor dangerous belt slip conditions. The Whirligig bolts to the base plate and the complete assembly bolts to the machine shaft, making installation simple and reliable. Shaft or machine vibration will not affect the sensor's performance, as the whole assembly moves with the shaft.
