Operating on an electronic system, the machines have inbuilt equipment to record usage data, temperature displays for rinse and wash tanks and chemical use, providing analysis to improve operational efficiencies. A stand-by facility is designed to save energy when not in use, and double-skinned features should enable quieter operation and reduced heat loss.
