The iVAC Switch Box is an intelligent controller for a vacuum.
The iVAC Switch Box enables the automatic switching of a vacuum for your health, enhanced safety, convenience, and energy efficiency.
The iVAC Switch Box unit is intended to be used with a power tool such as a router, planer, saw or sander and, an associated vacuum.
The intelligent sensing, electronic delay and programmed overrun optimise your dust collection and power consumption.
A vacuum connected to the iVAC Switch Box is controlled by 3 modes: AUTO - 0 - 1.
AUTO (automatic): When the connected power tool is switched on the vacuum will automatically switch on after a delay of 1 or 2 seconds. This delay function is to prevent the start up power surges of the power tool and vacuum coinciding and overloading your switch box and/or power source.
When the power tool is switched off the vacuum will continue to run for 8 or 16 seconds then automatically switch off. This overrun function is to purge dust and debris from your power tool, workstation and pipes.
1 (ON): The vacuum is permanently ON regardless of the state of the power tool.
0 (OFF): The vacuum is permanently OFF regardless of the state of the power tool.
