Handheld Setup Unit

The handheld IBC Setup Unit (ISU) is the latest diagnostics tool developed by D. R. Joseph, Inc. for allowing direct access to the IS-IBC1® Internal Bubble Cooling Systems and the new digital sensors. Lightweight, compact, and easy-to-use, the ISU is designed for easy access to the IS-IBC1® system for calibration, storing and retrieving parameter settings, diagnostics, and monitoring the process. It reduces the time required to setup and diagnose the IBC system by stepping the user through the common tasks. The ISU is especially useful for maintaining existing IS-IBC1® systems and storing recipes for lines with multiple dies and products.

Features when connected to:
IS-IBC1 System

  • Valve Calibration Tutor ensures the valve is calibrated properly.
  • Parameter Management allows only valid changes to any parameter.
  • Factory Defaults allows quick restoration of any IBC system to original factory settings.

PP4 Digital Sensor System

  • Quick Search finds all sensors on the PP4 network. Note: digital sensors not on the PP4 network can be temporarily added to complete testing requirements.
  • Sensor Monitor shows internal sensor operation including signal strength, range, output status and temperature.
  • Verify function ensures all internal settings are valid.
  • Sensor Reset function restores the sensor to the original factory settings ensuring proper operation after any non-fatal fault.


The unit is powered by the connected system, so there are no batteries to maintain. Power supply is 5 volts DC. The unit is also supplied with three levels of security to allow managers to define what features and parameters the user can access. It also is provided with language text in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. Optionally, the unit can be interfaced with the IBM PC and Microsoft Windows based IBCViewer program. This D. R. Joseph program supports system setup management on your Windows based PC using a database.
