CAR WASH PRODUCTS
High Performance CarWash Control Components
Wickets NTS can be integrated into most every car wash, vending, and laundry piece of equipment with one of our wireless or wired interfaces. IDX’s 3 way combo credit card reader- mag strip, contactless chip NFC and contact chip EMV, offers your customers choices of how they pay for services: mag strip credit card, NFC chip for cellphones using E-wallets and RFID Gift / Fleet / Store cards as well as the new EMV contact chip cards.
The Wickets System for the carwash market utilizes modern RFID (radio frequency identification) cards that are capable of securely storing value right on the card. It is the same as having bills in your wallet or change in your pocket.
IDX manufactures the Giga Timer, 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. The Little Two Timer mounts inside the meter box while the Big Time and Jumbo Time are mounted externally on the wall.

IDX timers are built with the most durable high power outputs in the industry – bar none! The AT411 series of vacuum timers include such options as X-Tra Time, 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 pressure delay timers saves wear and tear, while the MX-48 Foaminator series is designed to control solenoids for multiple colors of soap foam.

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.
Spike Snubber Terminals … Bye Bye Electrical Interference
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.
Other Accessories … 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; transformers, locks, specialty fuses, 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.
