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.​
