The iVac automatically turns your dust collection system on as soon as your
power tool is turned on. A great tool that can save time and make your shop a
safer place to work in.
This tool is intended to be used in conjunction with a dust collection, or
vacuum system and an associated power tool. The power tool can range from a
high power table saw, down to a low power mini drill. In fact most power tools
that generate dust.
Other Features Include
Designed for Continuous Operation.
Compact and lightweight and can be wall mounted.
Extends the life of your vacuum system.
ETL Safety Approval
Three Modes of Operation (Auto - Off - On)
Turn On Delay
This is the time delay from when the power tool is turned on to when
the vacuum is turned on.
When a tool or vacuum is turned on, there is an initial power surge from
the AC mains.
By means of the delay, it avoids the two power surges occurring at the same
time and causing the AC mains circuit breaker to trip.
Turn Off Delay
The Turn Off delay of 6 seconds ensures that your work area continues to be
cleared of remaining airborne debris even after the tool has stopped.
Two Input power cords
To permit operation from two separately protected AC mains circuits, when the
combined power from the tool and the vacuum exceed 15 Amps.
Power Cord Protection
Both power cords are individually protected with 15 Amp circuit breakers.
- The iVac Switch Box is designed to operate from one or
two 15 Amp AC mains circuits.
- The maximum AC current to the tool should not exceed 12 Amps.
- Turn On Delay (In Auto Mode.) 0.5 seconds to 2.0 seconds.
- Turn Off Delay (In Auto Mode.) Approximately 6.0 seconds.
- Turn On Tool Current in Auto Mode. 0.3 Amps to 12 Amps.
Excellent product. Love the fact you can have two separate sources of power for the tool and vacuum. That’s a great idea.
Pretty good switch. There is a slight delay (1/4 or 1/2 second) before the power is routed to the vacuum. If you have a soft start vacuum you won't get to full power on that until a 1/4 or 1/2 second again, so if you are doing a fast cut on the mitre saw you will be done before the vacuum is at full power. Hold the trigger for a little bit before making cut is the solution. I like that it runs for a few seconds after you are done too. Overall quite happy with it
Starts the Shop vac a little after the tool started and stops it a few moment after the tool stops working. Very effective.
Does what it is supposed to do. I like that it has the option to use one or two inputs. You are not limited to 15A. Mounts to wall easily
