Here is my current dust collection (4 inch pvc) layout with gates. I've added where I think my sensors and buttons should go. After looking at this, thinking I need to increase the main run to 6 inch PVC.

Thanks, I have been looking at the electrical boxes and the cost. So, I will make my own boxes and covers. I will post some pictures when I land on a design and working prototype.

One more thing, I am thinking about posting all of the models on thingiverse or do you think there is a better site? Anyone use Thingiverse?
Thanks,
Jim

Thingiverse would be a good place, use it all the time. I've been building a lot of my own boxes too.


What program are you creating your models in?

They look great. Are you using Arduino or Raspberry Pi? Python?

This got me interested, so I bought a Raspberry Pi 4 4GB and breadboarding stuff. This looks like fun to play with. .....says the Geek with 40+ years of system programming. :lol: I'm already looking at the Pandora Pi apps for touchscreen. This is gonna cost me a mint :roll:

LOL!!! Jim is getting both of us fired up Gerry. I've already got a nice collection of Arduino stuff, so I'm just waiting to see how this all turns out.

Jim, just a thought, should there be some consideration for EMI?

The CAT6e should be ok with Electromagnetic interference. I just tested a 75ft cable ran throughout my shop looping around running machines, no issues with gate open and closing.
Thanks,

Great project - watching with interest!
Just a thought on your pipe diagram. Ideally the Router table, Jointer, CNC, and lathe should all have their own port from the main trunk line.
Sanders and saws should be fine "ganged up" on a branch since they produce mostly fine dust.
Again, just a thought.

Hi Ed,

That is a great suggestion, I am thinking I will repipe the system after I get the auto gates working.
Thanks,
Jim
