The iControl Integrated Control System for ProdigyTechnology  incorporates high-density powder and lo-volume air (HDLVTM) technology. The system incorporates many user-friendly features, such as a preset table for easy entering and editing of gun parameters, as well as purge-ability to give powder coaters enhanced capabilities for optimal system performance and maximum line efficiency. The operator can view all gun setting sin a single screen and quickly copy settings to all guns for easy preset setup. The technology can be customized to provide digital control of all application parameters--voltage, current, triggering and air flow control--through a single, user-friendly operator interface. Digital flow control provides closed-loop airflow control that automatically adjusts for fluctuations in air pressure input. By controlling airflow to the powder pump, instead of controlling air pressure, the system is said to provide for stable air input to the pump and more constant powder flow to the gun.
