The RetractoControl 2 is an automated electro-pneumatic control system for our Retractex housings. By automating sensor retraction and cleaning processes, the Hamilton RetractoControl 2 allows you to reduce maintenance time and cost as well as increase the sensor lifetime in your process*. As the unit is designed and manufactured with the Retractex aperture in mind, the time for installation of automated sensor reaction and cleaning system is greatly reduced*.
• Automatic sensor retraction and reinsertion
• Customizable programming allows for optimization to your process
• Automatized cleaning
*Dependent on your process, installation and use of the system.

RetractoControl 2 with Traditional Sensors
Traditional sensor outputs are routed to a transmitter or analyzer. The transmitter output would go to the process control system where signals from the RetractoControl 2 can alert the system about cleaning cycles.
RetractoControl 2 with Arc Sensors
Arc sensor outputs can be directly connected to the control system. Signals from the RetractoControl 2 can be used to update the system at the start and the end of cleaning cycles.
The RetractoControl is available in many configurations to suit your particular requirements. Please find below our ordering information table to quickly identify the correct ordering code.
