Converting the Dillon Super 1050 Powder Check Sensor for use with the FFB Auto-Drive


Materials Required:

  • Dillon Powder Check Sensor.
  • Two feet of 18-20 AWG wire.  High strand count, flexible is preferred.
  • 1/4" Mono Speaker Plug.  We like Digikey.com p/n 889-1828-ND.

Tools Required:

  • Allen Key
  • Wire cutter/stripper
  • Soldering Iron

Step 1 - Remove the 4 screws holding the sensor together.

Step 2 - Remove the switch and buzzer assembly.

Step 3 - Unsolder the RED wire from the switch.

Step 4 - Cut the 18-20 AWG wire to Two (2) feet in length.

Step 5 - Solder the wire to the normally open terminals as pictured on the side of the switch.  In our product photo, that is the bottom two terminals as pictured.

Step 6 - Solder the other end of the wire to the 1/4" mono speaker plug.  There is no polarity of the wires.

Step 7 - Re-assemble sensor.


That's it.  The conversion can be done in less than 5 minutes once all materials/tools are ready to go.  The speaker is no longer used and can be stored for later conversion back to stock, or tossed in the trash.


Warning:  Do not use any batteries in conjunction with the switch.  Doing so will damage the Variable Frequency Drive (VFD).
