First Look: Hornady Lock-N-Load Control Panel

First Look: Hornady Lock-N-Load Control Panel

The new Hornady Lock-N-Load Control Panel works in conjunction with the Hornady Ammo Plant. The control panel is essentially a sensor that works in conjunction with multiple parts of a press.

An audible and visual alarm gives alerts on several key aspects of the reloading process, such as the powder hopper and primer hopper availability.

Also, when the sensor encounters a problem in the reloading process, such as a double-charged or under-charged load, the control panel will automatically stop the press. It will even count how many finished cartridges have been produced in a given session.

The Hornady Lock-N-Load Control Panel comes in several configurations depending on your equipment, and will be available in spring of 2014.
