ROHSLOGO

 

 

ABT is committed to reducing the lead content in all its product lines in an environmentally responsible, technologically feasible, and cost-effective manner without sacrificing the current high levels of performance, quality, and reliability. As a result, ABT has initiated lead-free research and development programs to identify and evaluate possible lead-tin solder substitutes, while working with suppliers and other companies to establish lead-free standards and testing requirements for individual electronic components. Although only small amounts of lead have been commonly used in discrete components, IC packages, and printed circuit boards, its presence in these products is an increasingly visible governmental and environmental concern. ABT integrates RoHS compliant products and components wherever possible.

MyControl VoiceMateTM

vrsmoduleMyControl VoiceMate is a speech-sound-dependent recognition module featuring an on-board microcontroller, allowing training of all 9 bathing control functions. Using sophisticated award-winning speech and sound recognition technology, the VoiceMate maps spoken or sound commands (words, sentences, or sounds) to system control functions. With proper, easy-to-use training, the VoiceMate can achieve greater than 99% recognition accuracy.

 

MyControl’s VoiceMate can be used in CL (constant listening mode) or MTM (manual trigger mode). Simply touch the MODE pad on the Touch Assist screen and VoiceMate changes between the two recognition options. LEDs (labeled talk), located on the touch key pad panels light to let a user know when VoiceMate is listening for a command (talk LED) and to indicate Mode status.

Touch Assist Dual 8 function Touch screen

Key-pad-B[1]

 

Introduce yourself to ABT’s Touch Assist Touch Screen Technologies. Each touch screen requires little pressure to activate the bathing system’s functions. Touch pressure required for activation is equal to the same weight just less than a quarter and a dime! The Touch Screens feature easy to read screen text. Touch screens feature blue back lighting and feature LED status indication when a screen pad is touched.

Multiple touch key pads can be daisy chained together.

All electronic control boards are hand manufactured and undergo numerous quality control tests. You will find thatMyControl’s electronics will provide you with years of trouble-free operation. In the rare event of a problem, each Printed Circuit Control Board was designed to be easily serviced or replaced by a qualified technician.

Electronic Controller box panel and virtual key pads

The Electronic Controller panel located in the basin underside mounted at the water valve assembly provides LED status indication of function operation. Virtual scaled size versions of touch key pads A and B accessible from a compatible computer or handheld device allows for direct operation of functions from the underside of the bath system’s basin. This provides for easy service updates and system operation checks. LED status for functions is present on the virtual touch panels.
