The functional operating unit in a modular system
The VARIO is the central control unit of the Christ roll-over wash unit system. The customer chooses the washing programme he wants and then is in charge of the operation himself. For the operator, the VARIO is the central access point, through which all the configurations and operating data is accessed.
Every Christ Roll-over wash unit comes free of charge with the self-service enabling device VARIO-XS for wall-mounting. The self-service operation is being activated by entering a wash code manually (possible with a C-ST bought ticket). The VARIO-XS has an LED display with membrane keypad, emergency stop and start button in a compact, special plastic casing.
The „big brother“ of the VARIO-XS has a larger panel for even more convenient operation of the washing plant and a robust aluminium casing. The VARIO-L is characterized by a variety of additional equipment, among others, payment systems and security features.
The VARIO TOUCH-S provides the wash customers a modern, responsive touchscreen for operating the system. The casing is made of stainless aluminium and is covered by a high-quality adhesive foil. Individual designs are possible. VARIO TOUCH-S is also suitable for the drive-in operation.
