i-Socket Products

The i-Socket® Autoswitch enables the power switch/button on a tool to automatically turn on or off a vacuum or other accessory while the tool is running.

The original i-Socket Autoswitch has become a staple hardware item in shops of all sizes. It is quickly becoming a must have for woodworkers & home improvement professionals seeking to be more productive, while keeping their customers happy with a clean job site and less shop vac noise.

I-Socket® technology is now available in a family of Autoswitches, redesigned with updated components and a variety of sizes and options.

Automatic Timing

Auto turn on of vacuum and accessories with a micro second delay to reduce circuit overload.
Delays turn-off of vac and accessories by 7 seconds or more to continue to clear the hose of remaining debris.

Safe Restart™

(Workshop Pro
Releasing Soon!)

Automatically prevents power tools from powering up when electricity is restored following an outage (if the power tool was left on).

Save Electricity

Runs the vacuum only when you’re using your tool so instead of running the vac for extended periods of time you save electricity, and reduce work area noise.

Save Your lungs

Breathe easy, you're covered. i-Sockets make it easy to use your vacuum, Sawdust can contain harmful substances such as glues, paints, resins and other toxins. Masonry dust contains Crystalline Silica, a serious workplace hazard that leads to Silicosis.

How It Works

Our family of Autoswitches contain i-Socket technology, a Micro-Controller and software uniquely programmed to monitor and control the in-rush and outflow of current through the device.

A Must Have In Any Shop or Toolbox

The i-Socket® Autoswitch is well suited for any woodworking power tools including Miter Saws, Table Saws, Power Sanders and Routers.

Adaptive For Any Multi-tool Use

i-Sockets can be used where two motors need to work in tandem. Other applications include Tile-Cutting Machines to control water pump while saw is running, or auxiliary fan or pump controls for various appliances.
