Home Switch-Breaker Autoswitch i-Socket 120010
Description

Sick and tired of having to do the same routine: start the vacuum, start the saw, make the cut, stop the saw and stop the vacuum? Now with the switch-breaker Autoswitch, no need to bother anymore with the vacuum. 

Specifically designed for the combined use of tool and standard shop type vacuum, this “intelligent” switch will control the in rush of current start up, thus eliminating circuit breaker overload.

  • Measuring 4"(100mm) x 2"(50 mm) x 3"(75 mm), it is equipped with a software imbedded microcontroller and needs to be plugged into a standard 15A/110V outlet.
  • Any tool with a 15A/110V (1875 Watts) maximum motor rating can be plugged in: portable or contractor table saw, miter saw, portable planer, router, sander, work lamp or others.
  • Any vacuum that does not exceed 15A/110V (1875 Watts) can be plugged in: wet/dry vacuum, dust collector and even power feeder.
  • The vacuum switch must be in the ON position for auto-start up.
  • One only has to power the tool ON and the vacuum will automatically start.
  • Power the tool OFF and the vacuum will continue running for 7 seconds to clean out the pipe, then automatically cycle down and sit in the ready state until the next use.

Good way to increase efficiency and focus on you work!

A word from the boss 

New decade = many challenges! (20-01-24)

A new year has just started and another decade is beginning full of hopes and challenges. Among these, labour-related issues are likely to be a major challenge for the industry as a whole.

Succession problems have already begun to leave marks to both our suppliers and our customers. Mergers, downsizing and reduced services among suppliers, decreased activity, withdrawal of business and closures to customers.

Normand also has to deal with the same problems. The planned departure of several long-time employees with more than 35 years of experience will leave a void that will not be easy to fill.

All of this will have a significant impact on the quality and quantity of services. Should we continue to offer greater accessibility at the expense of a lower quality of response and service?

Fortunately, the Boss can count on a young and dynamic succession team with remarkable ideals but different from those of the old guard. The stability and continuity of the company remain at the heart of his concerns for the benefit of all his loyal clientele which has supported him for nearly 70 years.
