This article describes how to install a Treon Industrial Node or Industrial Node 6 with the help of the Treon Magnetic Epoxy Mount Adapter.

Using the Magnetic Epoxy Mount Adapter enables attaching Industrial Node to uneven surfaces and without any opening for a bolt. The Industrial Node will be pre-fixed by a magnet and the final​ installation must then be done with a suitable glue. It is possible to manually align the Industrial Node.

Installation with an Magnetic Epoxy Mount Adapter requires a Treon Magnetic Epoxy Mount Adapter, epoxy, and a surface of 32 mm diameter.

 

What you need

For this installation method you will need:

  • Treon Magnetic Epoxy Mount Adapter
  • Silicone grease
  • Glue (Loctite EA 3450, Loctite HY 4070 or other suitable glue)
  • Torque wrench

 

Step 1: Apply Silicon Grease

Apply and carefully spread the silicon grease to the EMagnetic Epoxy Mount Adapter’s top surface. This is the surface opposite to the magnet surface.

If you are unsure which surface is the right one, test the magnetic surface of the adapter with a metal surface and then choose the opposite surface for this step.

Apply grease to clean surface
Apply around the thread hole
Spread with finger
Whole surface of adapter
should be covered

Step 2: Connect Magnetic Epoxy Mount Adapter to Industrial Node

Take the Magnetic Epoxy Mount Adapter and carefully screw it to the Industrial Node. The greased surface should point toward the Industrial Node, and the magnetic side away from the Node.

Take the Epoxy Mount Adapter
Screw in all the way

Step 3: Tighten

Set the torque in the torque wrench to exactly 8 Nm. The SW size is 30 mm.

Hold the Industrial Node with the SW 30 spanner or wrench and carefully tighten the Magnetic Epoxy Mount Adapter.

Tighten with torque wrench

Step 4: Clean Machine Surface

Now carefully clean the surface of the machine where the Industrial Node should be attached.

 

Step 5: Apply the Glue

Prepare the glue and then apply it to the surface of your machine according to the instructions of the glue manufacturer.

Take the epoxy glue
Mix on disposable surface
Mix both phases
Ready when fully mixed
Apply glue to machine surface
Spread glue evenly

Please note: If you use a an epoxy glue that gets mixed in the nozzle, like the Loctite HY 4070, you can apply direclty to the machine surface.

Step 6: Attach Industrial Node to Machine

Place the Industrial Node on top of the glue. Now align the Node so that its axis​ points directly toward either the drive or the non-drive end of the machine.​

Attach Industrial Node to machine

Let the glue harden fully before turning on the machine.

 

The Industrial Node or Industrial Node 6 is now fully installed!
