Warewasher manufacturer Krupps has released version 4.0 of its iKloud wifi control system.
The software update allows the Italian headquartered firm and its customers to collect and study big data from all warewashers constantly connected to the platform.
Krupps believes this will lead to a general improvement of all of its products through non-stop learning from the warewashers installed all around the world.
Another key factor for 4.0 is that constant monitoring and control of the machine by Krupps’ technical service should improve the safety of operators during their daily activities.
Manuel Petrucci, Krupps’ marketing and communication manager, reported: “We are very satisfied with the new 4.0 technology we developed for the first time for a professional warewasher, and we are very proud that we did this focusing on user experience and on what can make daily activities easier.
“This is a very important milestone for professional warewashing and for our future the objective is to follow this path.”
He added: “Customers are said to be not only very happy with this new approach to after-sales service, but they also recognise very quickly how much they can save money and time in every daily operation.”
According to Krupps, iKloud was the first wifi control system for professional warewashers when it was launched at Host 2015.
Since then, the manufacturer has launched new ranges based on these technologies, including Uniko, the touch display made in tempered glass, designed to feature easy to recognise icons and only require quick training for operators.
iKloud enables end users to control the machine remotely, check its consumption and set a daily switch on/off. Those actions are said to improve the efficiency of the warewasher.
Plus the self-diagnostic system can recognise anomalies and send a real-time notification to the engineer, specifying the source of the error and the correct solution. Engineers can even solve any anomalies remotely.
