The bi-directional control (connecting cable) of an Atmos exhaust system directly communicates with Trotec JobControl®, SpeedMark and DirectMark software. The exhaust system is started at the same time as your laser processing and is stopped when the laser job ends. If you use a different exhaust system, please turn it on and off manually before beginning the laser processing.
For correct extraction perofrmance, we recommend that you change the lead and follow-up times for the exhaust system based on the material. This can be done in JobControl® under Settings > Options > Hardware > Exhaust system > Lead time / Follow-up time. This makes sure that, for example, when processing materials that emit smoke, the system runs at 100% power at the beginning and the end of the job to completely get rid of dust.
