The bi-directional control (connecting cable) of atmos exhaust systems communicates directly with Trotecs JobControl®, SpeedMark or DirectMark laser software. The exhaust system activates simultaneously when laser processing begins and stops when the job is completed. Other exhaust systems will need to be switched on and off manually before laser processing.
To ensure optimum extraction, we recommend that you adjust the lead and follow-up times of the exhaust system, depending on the material. You can customise the lead and follow-up times in the JobControl® laser software under Settings > Options > Hardware > Exhaust system > Lead time / Follow-up time. As an example this ensures that when processing materials with critical smoke emission, the exhaust system runs at 100% output to completely extract the dust throughout the processing time.
