SMA OneTouch ICS Details


The SMA OneTouch® Integrated Control System (ICS) is a computerized, automated viable air monitoring system that controls calibrated, precise air sampling through individual or multiple SMA Atriums®. SMA Atriums are Stainless Steel collection devices that direct air from the environment to impact onto a media plate. The media plate is then evaluated to determine the amount of viable contamination in the air sample.

The SMA OneTouch ICS strictly regulates the air flow rate throughout a sample cycle. The system automatically alarms the operator visually and audibly if the sample becomes compromised or is aborted. In addition, the SMA OneTouch ICS continuously monitors the air flow rate while sampling and will alert the operator if the flow rate deviates from the established 1 Cubic Feet per Minute (CFM) flow rate.

The SMA OneTouch ICS has a touchscreen interface that incorporates facility floor plans and SMA Atrium locations for sample monitoring. User accounts have access levels which limit their access to specific functionality.

VAI also offers the SMA OneTouch ICS for Isolators. This SMA OneTouch ICS configuration includes all the aforementioned benefits, provides secure sampling inside an isolator, and redirects air flow during Vaporized Hydrogen Peroxide (VHP) sterilization.

SMA OneTouch ICS Components
The SMA OneTouch ICS comes as a complete assembly that includes: Interface, Flow Center, Controller, and Vacuum components (if ordering SMA OneTouch ICS for isolators, an Isolator Flow Center).The SMA OneTouch ICS Interface is a touch screen that is used to monitor and control the SMA OneTouch ICS and all integrated SMA Atriums. The SMA OneTouch ICS Controller is a computerized system which incorporates a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and powers the Interface and Flow Center. It automates all system monitoring, sampling, and alarming functions. The SMA OneTouch ICS Flow Center contains a series of high accuracy mass-flow controllers (1.0 CFM ± 2%) that automatically regulate the air flow on each sampling line.

VAI offers on-site calibration and repair services. Please contact us for details.
