Laguna 10HP, 4030CFM, 1 micron filter, 2 54Gallon collection drums, auto-clean canister. Sound blocking panels and sound absorbing blankets have been installed. Documentation for remote OnOff buttons can be found here - Dust_Collector_Automation

A new AutomationDirect ACNND-2010 VFD is installed on the unit in place of Laguna's not-great wye-delta soft start system.



Sensors on front panel indicate if bins are full or if HEPA canister needs cleaning, however, physical inspection should also be done regularly.


  • If the alarm sounds, it means the bins are nearly full. A sensor detects when they are about 2/3rd's full.
  • If this happens when you are using the dust collector, lucky you! You get to empty the DC. Don't leave it for someone else to deal with.
  • Remove the lower right sound barrier panel by twisting the latches.
  • Unlatch the bins and pull out far enough to remove bags. The alarm should stop once the bins are removed. There is a hose attached to the back that limits how far they should be moved out.
  • Remove bags and put in dumpster.
  • A box of 65 gallon bags is under the DC. Use of bags is mandatory. The 55 gallon bags used around the space for trash cans are too small.
  • Expand the bags in the bins as much as possible and fold over the edges.
  • Push bins back in place. You will hear a short beep as the bin passes under the sensor. Push bin at the bottom to ensure the bin is properly in place.
  • Re-latch the bins and replace the sound barrier panel.
  • If the alarm goes off and you find the bins are not full or the bags have been sucked up into the plenum, contact zone coordinator.
