The iQ2 operating system is pioneering the future of fume extraction. It brings multiple performance enhancements for higher efficiency of extraction, individual filter status monitoring and integral design features that combine to deliver a lower cost of ownership. And most importantly, it addresses the issue dreaded by most production teams - downtime - by minimising the potential for interrupting production for unplanned filter changes.
iQ2 will be compatible with a number of our AD laser extraction systems and will be offered as three distinct versions, each providing an increased level of control and scalable options for accessing information.
iQ2 further endorses our commitment to develop innovative product solutions that maximise productivity and reduce overall ownership costs.
The hugely successful 2012 introduction of iQ based extraction units established a step change in fume extraction technology. For the first time users were able to monitor real time filter performance and access system data to support fast and effective filter replacement and system maintenance.
iQ2 second generation combines field proven iQ reliability with a range of new and highly advanced feature enhancements, adding significantly to the list of seller and user benefits.
The iQ2 will be available in three versions:
Improved operating system including large colour touch screen display, providing detailed information to operators and USB downloadable high resolution event log for filter efficiency, system analysis and fault correction.
Extraction systems can be configured to customer requirements using the USB upload function.
Provides connectivity to a factory field bus / PLC network. Allowing constant monitoring and control of the extraction system. Complete data sets can be streamed over the PLC system for detailed performance analysis within the factory.
Worldwide remote monitoring of multiple locations/units directly from the Cloud service app or web portal. Extraction systems can be monitored and controlled remotely with information instantly accessed to ensure fast response times and reduced downtime.
