The iVAC Family of Products
The iVAC Switch Box was introduced to the market in April 2009 and to date (Nov 2014) over 32,000 units have been sold. Feedback from the customer, requested additional features and this led to the development of the iVAC Pro System which could interface basic power tools used in your workshop to dust collectors up to 2HP.
Once again there was feedback from the customer which led to an ongoing series of developments.
In August 2011 the iVAC Contactor was introduced and this enabled the iVAC Pro System to interface with Dust Collectors up to 10HP.
In May 2012 the iVAC Pro Tool HP was launched and it enables high power tools rated at greater than 3HP, or operating on three phase AC mains, to be connected to the system. As a result the iVAC Pro System could accommodate basically any power tool or dust collector found in a hobbyists workshop.
In September 2013 the iVAC Pro Blast Gate entered the market. The PBG-04 is a 4” automatic Blast Gate based on a plastic housing. In November 2014 it has been joined by two all metal Blast Gates at 4” and 6”. Automatic Blast Gate
