Function description

• iTeach
  • The installation of the iValve does no more require any settings of hydraulic parameters. It adjusts itself.
• iAccess
  • From your office, you can access and monitor the iValve remotely, display data, condition and error messages, change parameters and check which provisions are necessary.
  • iAccess will be provided as an option, depending on the remote management system of the controller.
• iMonitoring
  • The valve monitors and analyses itself. It forecasts at what point in time which measures e.g. clean oil filter or replace a part will be needful - like you might know it from your car. In combination with iAccess you can get these data on your screen at your office.
  • iMonitoring will be available as an option in a second phase.
