Wander around in the afternoon and drive romantically. When we drive past government departments, enterprises, properties, shopping malls, hotels, parking lots, communities, gas stations and other places, more and more smart car wash stores are springing up like bamboo shoots after a rain in the wind of the Internet of Things. Whoever is smarter, whoever is simpler and more convenient, who owns a car, spreads word of mouth and attracts customers. The smart car wash is convenient for residents’ life and constantly improves the experience, which has been well received by users. Of course, the intelligent car washing machine cannot be without the presence of our automation equipment manufacturers and the presence of our IKON Drives.
Smart car wash generally includes the following steps:
First: Member license plate recognition to enter, non-member scan code payment.
Second: when you arrive at the location, wet the body with clean water and spray the no-scrub car fluid.
Third: 360-degree water rinse the body
Fourth: spray wipe-free water wax
Fifth: the air-drying coating is completed (the residual water droplets after the air-drying coating do not need to be wiped without leaving water marks)

Smart car wash generally includes the following control requirements:
As a mature car wash service brand, it has multiple stores. How to quickly know the number of car washes per day, daily operating income, equipment working hours, etc., which involves data collection and centralized monitoring. Haiwell IoT terminal products HMI/cloud box/IPC/SCADA cloud configuration all support the MQTT protocol. Through the on-site Ethernet, the data is transmitted to the EMQ server on the cloud server, and then the data is stored in the Haiwell data interconnection tool. To the database, the database can be connected to the intelligent ERP management system, so that centralized monitoring of field equipment and data collection and monitoring can be realized, as shown in the following figure:

IKON Drives IoT terminal screen and cloud box also support mobile payment function, which can be connected to Alipay and WeChat payment systems. The configuration of payment system can be quickly completed through IKON Drives cloud configuration software, which is easy to operate and widely used in various charging systems. .
