Speed Switch devices coupled to a corresponding shaft, must be properly mounted and aligned to avoid putting extra load on motor bearings, which may cause premature failure. The use of installation accessories such as Mounting Brackets and K-Couplings provide a secure foundation and eliminate misalignment connection problems.

Mounting Brackets

Speed Switch Installation Accessories

When ordering Mounting Brackets, please specify Model MB-1 for 2100 / 8100 electro-mechanical Speed Switch devices, and Model MB-2 for RotoGuard electronic, and all Explosion Proof devices. Mounting plate and yellow guard included.


K-Coupling Ordering Options
K-Coupling for Speed Switch Installation

The K-Coupling® is made of double-loop ELASTACAST® polyurethane elastomeric material assembled to zinc plated steel hubs, which mount to shafts using Allen screws. Motor noise and vibration will be dampened. Bearings will last longer and require less maintenance. When ordering, make sure the torque requirement is within rating limits, and always include the bore size for both ends of the coupling, which may not be the same.
