What is SmartPod?

SmartPod is a digitally controlled product dispensing system and is the most advanced mobile dispensing system available for dispensing an EPA-registered disinfecting and sanitizing chemistry. SmartPod has been designed specifically to apply Defend-X Disinfecting and Sanitizing Solution, and Odor-X Odor Eliminator products from Turtle Wax Pro.

What advantages does the digital control provide on the SmartPod dispenser?

Digital control allows SmartPod to dispense products in a consistent way, application after application. Once a baseline is established for the amount of product required to treat a specific vehicle, room, or other items, a specific product application cycle can be set up for that object. Up to three pre-set application cycles can be programmed into the SmartPod digital control. The digital control system can be programmed to dispense an exact amount of product over a specific amount of time, to give control of the application consistency. Having this level control is crucial to ensure correct and effective application of the Defend-X Disinfecting and Sanitizing Solution.

Is SmartPod simple to use?

Absolutely. SmartPod uses an intuitive touch-screen interface that directs the operator through the process. Color-coded hoses allow for quick identification of the correct application wand for the chosen product. SmartPod even includes on-board instructional tutorial videos to explain assembly and operation.

What are the dimensions of SmartPod?

SmartPod is a robust maneuverable dispensing system, with a design suited to a service center, detailing shop, warehouse, or even outdoor application (weather permitting).

Height: 46” (1168 mm)

Width: 29” (740 mm)

What products can be used with the SmartPod dispenser?

Defend-X and Odor-X by Turtle Wax Pro in 1 gallon containers (128 oz.) are the only products approved and authorized to be used in the SmartPod dispenser at this time.

How much product does SmartPod use?

In a standard sized passenger car:

  • Typical application of Defend-X requires 1.5 oz.

  • Typical application of Odor-X requires 0.5 oz.

What spray technology does the SmartPod employ?

The spray wands are specially designed to dispense Defend-X in the right droplet size to be in compliance with the EPA claims. The combination of the spray wands and SmartPod’s digital controls manage the right amount of chemistry per average vehicle size to meet the EPA claims for wetness and dwell or dry time. Ergonomically designed trigger wands allow for application into tight spaces without operator fatigue. An on-board air compressor provides clean / dry air to propel the products onto surfaces being treated.

Does SmartPod use Electrostatic application technology?

SmartPod does not use Electrostatic technology.

What are the power requirements for SmartPod?

SmartPod uses a standard 120V North American plug. SmartPod requires the use of a 3 prong grounded extension cord and receptacle. Amperage rating is 5.5 Amps.

Are there other utility requirements for SmartPod?

WiFi connectivity is required at all times to ensure proper setup and application tracking. No external compressed air or water connection is required for SmartPod.

What is the purpose of the WiFi connection?

SmartPod connects to a secure cloud server to allow for remote monitoring of product levels, alerts, and dispensing statistics. This data is accessible by location and company managers to allow for product ordering, and application / performance tracking. All messages are time-stamped before being sent to the cloud to facilitate application tracking and reporting.

What happens if SmartPod loses its WiFi connection?

SmartPod will check for a WiFi connection when it is turned on, and will not allow startup without WiFi. If WiFi is lost while SmartPod is active or during a dispense cycle, the system will continue to function, and data is recorded to prevent data loss.

The standard hose length provided with SmartPod is 25’. Other hoses up to 50’ in length are available for an additional fee.
