International heat-treatment codes and standards require welders to conform to heating parameters for the target workpiece, including heat-up time, temperature uniformity, soak time and cool-down time. The pieces of equipment used for this purpose are known as power consoles. The Ice Star ISQ controller is now available with a six-way power console. The ISQ controller is a 6- or 12-zone control system designed and manufactured specifically for metal heat treatment, specifically welding.
