Virtual Industries ADJUST-A-VAC™ AUTO-SHUT-OFF ESD-SAFE Kit at APEX

Jan 07, 2020

Virtual Industries Inc. today announced that it will exhibit at the 2020 IPC APEX EXPO, scheduled to take place Feb. 4-6, 2020 at the San Diego Convention Center in California. The company will demonstrate the new ADJUST-A-VAC™ AUTO-SHUT-OFF ESD-SAFE Kit with Buna-N Static Dissipative Non-Marking Vac (AV-6000A-110) in Booth #1200.

The ADJUST-A-VAC will be shown with the new AUTO-SHUT-OFF feature. A sensor automatically turns on and off the ADJUST-A-VAC, helping users to be more productive, save energy, and extend life of the unit.

Now, when users turn the power switch to the AUTO position, the unit will be off. When you pick up the vacuum pen from its holder, the blue LED vacuum level bar will glow to show that the power is on.

An integrated ten segment bar-graph-display visibly shows the vacuum level present during handling operations. The bar graph will show minimum vacuum level until a part is grasped and then the blue LED bar graph displays the vacuum level presented to the part being handled. Additionally, the vacuum port integrates a user replaceable inlet filter that protects operation of the tool from dust particles – the filter part number to order is VF-40M-5. Kits are available in 110 or 220 volt operation.
