Last Coin Alert, Anti Freeze Timer, Two-Timer and a 24VAC built-in
transformer to power a coin acceptor. The MX-8 series of high

control solenoids for multiple colors of soap foam.
Timers ... Show Me The
IDX manufactures the
Little Two Timer, the Big Time, and the Jumbo Time series of
Display-Timers. Each of these may be configured as a display only for
tracking another timer, or may have the timer output in it as well.

and Jumbo Time are mounted externally on the wall.
Switches ... Electronic &
IDX offers the toughest
corrosion resistant 8 and 10 position mechanical rotary selector
switches available today. Or, step up to the 10 position electronic
selector switch with beeper, lighted button indicators, short circuit
proof solid state outputs, secret code for enabling bay wash-down, and
configurable output for the high pressure pump.
... Serviceable Hinged Door
IDX meter boxes are widely
known for ease of service with their drop-down hinged removable doors.
They are pre-wired, use snubber terminal blocks, come in a variety of
sizes and safe options, and may be configured for just about any
combination of coin acceptor, display, bill valuator and selector
switch you may want. The door's graphic overlay top surface is heavy
duty polycarbonate, is easily field customized, and easily field
replaced if damaged.
... No Locks To Pick At !
The IDX Electric Safes
have no visible locks for thieves to attack. The drawer is released
only by using your key in an electric key switch located in your
control room. The key switch activates double redundant electric
solenoids inside the vault to release the drawer for opening. No more
problems with saws, crow bars, and other implements of destruction!!
Bay Menu Signs are 24" by
36" size thick polycarbonate sheets in stainless steel frames. Spot
labels match those on meter box rotary switch and may be put on in any
order in the field. All graphics are printed on or attached to the
back surface of the sign for protection. Available with no
backlighting, with backlit spots that track meter box rotary switch,
and with optional position for mounting Big Time as shown in the photo
on the left.
Terminals ... Bye Bye
High current solenoids,
contactors and other heavy duty electrical equipment in your carwash
produce upwards of 10kV voltage spikes and showering arcs on your
24VAC. When these voltage spikes crawl around your wiring, they
can interfere with your electronic timers, displays and coin acceptors
that use the same 24VAC power resulting in "strange behavior." Snubber
terminal blocks clamp and absorb these spikes so your equipment
behaves as expected. IDX puts these snubber terminals in all meter
boxes shipped. If you experience "strange behavior" in some of your
bays, you probably need to add snubber terminals.
... The Important Details !
IDX provides nearly a
bazillion other important little accessories to look after the details
of making your carwash function at its best. They include;
beepers, coin counters, strobes, labels and decals,
snap-in acceptor face plates, indicator
lights, crimping tools, hour meters, and the list goes on an on.
