Didn’t focus too much on this aspect of things, thinking my eagle eye missed nothing - then I got a squib…. This is a brilliant, easy to set up, dependable and consistent tool that adds tremendous peace of mind to my reloading.

I love the concept, however the sensor will not work if your powder tube is cloudy or stained. I have ordered new powder tubes for my Dillon 550, the system should perform as designed after the replacement..

Very nice to get notified when powder is below desired level..

I normally dont run under half powder level, to get the most consistent powderdrop..
Only wish they would make an easyer way to empty hopper when finish reloading, like a side drop off (nothing to do with the sensor though)

Simple to use and effective! Allows easier operation because you can access the powder funnel easier.

The DAA Infra-Red Low Powder Sensor is an efficient, high-tech solution to a problem every reloader has encountered: Making sure to fill that powder hopper in time, before you accidently load empty cases without powder… (don’t feel stupid, we’ve all done it…)

Unlike other solutions on the market, the DAA Infra-Red Low Powder Sensor can be used on all powder hoppers, not just the Dillon hopper. And It allows the user to determine at what level of powder the alarm will be triggered. Simply position the device at the height of your choosing, and when the powder level drops below the bottom of the IR sensors – the alarm will sound.

The Alarm signal is a bright red LED light as well as a loud beeping sound. Impossible to miss even when reloading with hearing protection. The bright red light immediately draws your attention to the problem, so that you can top up  your hopper before the powder level drops lower than you would like. (many precision reloaders are wary about allowing the powder level to drop lower than about 1/3 capacity of the hopper, as when the hopper gets too empty the powder flow changes slightly)

The DAA Infra-Red Low Powder Sensor is powder by a 9v battery (not included) which will power the unit for more than 3 years of normal use. The Unit incorporates a motion sensor, which puts the device into “sleep” mode when the press in not in use, conserving power. It automatically awakens when you start to operate your press, giving you a green light to show the battery is good and the device is monitoring your powder level.

The Sensor is a compact size and contoured to fit snugly onto the side of your powder hopper, without interfering with other dies or accessories on your press. You can position it so it’s facing you – making the alarm LED as visible as possible.

Add the DAA Infra-Red Low Powder Sensor to your powder hopper, and avoid the unfortunate error of running out of powder as you load!
