Magnet LED indicator

The control panel on your magnetic drilling machine is designed for maximum ease of use and safety. Here you can find the Magnet LED indicator, which tells you whether the magnetic force is sufficient enough to start your drilling job. There are two options:

  • The LED indicator lights up GREEN when generated magnetic force is sufficient.
  • The LED indicator lights up RED when generated magnetic force is insufficient due to:

• Surface not being flat
• Workpiece not being magnetizable (e.g. aluminum)
• Workpiece is coated or painted
• Workpiece is not thick enough

GYRO-TEC safety

GYRO-TEC safety features a gyroscopic sensor which detects acceleration and displacement in any direction. The GYRO-TEC safety feature engages three seconds after the motor is started. Whenever the machine recognizes a sudden or unwanted movement the motor will be shut down automatically by the machine’s electronics. This safety functionality offers extra protection in various circumstances, such as:

 

  • Sudden loss of magnetic force while in operation
  • Excessive vibration caused by incorrect drilling procedure, worn-out cutting tools, etc.
  • Sudden displacement of the workpiece to which the magnetic drilling machine is attached

By the motor shutting down automatically, risk of damaging or hurting the machine, tools, workpiece and operator is reduced.

Carbon brushes

The carbon brushes on the magnetic drilling machine are equipped with two protective features. The purpose of both features is to schedule timely service and avoid additional costs by unexpected downtime or unnecessary part replacement.

Carbon brush wear indicator

On top of the motor housing you will find an integrated LED light. Under normal circumstances this light is off. The LED light will start burning red when the carbon brushes are worn to a level where it is advised to replace them.

Automatic shut-off 

When the carbon brushes are actually worn to a level where replacement is needed, the motor will be shut-off automatically. This prevents the armature from being damaged. During automatic shut-off, the integrated LED light is no longer lit.

Power protection

The power protection feature is two-fold; it consists of both power fluctuation protection and power surge protection. Special safety components built into
the electronics of the machine make it more reliable in situations where power supply can be of varying quality due to factors:

  • Around the workplace, for example caused by switching on high power or unreliable electrical devices, a broken circuit breaker or faulty wiring
  • Outside the workplace, for example caused by an instable power grid or lightning

A machine with this feature is able to cope with standard rated voltage and frequency fluctuations ranging from:

  • 110 Volt to 130 Volt and 45 Hz to 65 Hz, or
  • 220 Volt to 240 Volt and 45 Hz to 65 Hz

reducing the probability of breakdown and minimizing down-time and repair cost.

Power fluctuation protection

When the frequency is too high (above 65 Hz) or too low (below 45 Hz), the motor will not start. If the frequency of the power supply falls outside the range
during your drilling job, the motor will shut off automatically. The machine will work again normally when the normal frequency has been restored.*

Power surge protection

Beyond the rated voltage, a machine with this feature is able to cope with voltage spikes up to 4,000 Volt (1-2μs)*, which could be caused by nearby welding activities. Depending on the height of the spike, it may be necessary to replace built-in fuses, the control unit or the power switch, but other valuable parts like the motor and magnet will be protected.

*Disclaimer: Euroboor is not liable for any damage caused to the machine due to electrical problems in the workplace. Above mentioned protection is not guaranteed in all cases of voltage spikes and/or frequency fluctuations. Euroboor accepts no liability when it comes to the power protection not functioning or functioning poorly.

 

2-way magnet function

The 2-way magnet function is a protective function, in which the magnetic force is activated for 50% when the magnet is switched on and for 100% when the motor is also switched on. At half the magnetic force, the magnet sticks to the surface enough to hold the machine in position when not in use. This subsequently ensures that the machine uses less energy, generates less heat and therefore lasts longer.

Integrated motor cable

The frame of your magnetic drilling machine is designed for maximum safety and comfort. It is provided with an ergonomic handle and integrated motor cable. The integrated motor cable offers increased safety as the cable is completely incorporated in the frame. This prevents the user from getting caught in the cable and the cable from tearing or snapping off. It also prevents a lot of unnecessary repairs and therefore additional costs because the user can no longer lift and carry the machine by the motor cable, which often happens in practice.

Overheat protection

The overheat safety function is an all-time electronic temperature protection. If the temperature of the motor unit runs up to 100˚ C. – 105˚ C. the motor unit will stop. After a few minutes it can be started again. This ensures that the machine will not overheat and prevents unexpected downtime and high repair costs.
