All IQ 2.0 car wash systems are equipped with newly designed drive over plates with grippers that contribute to an improved customer experience. These new gripper plates provide the car wash owner with assurance that customers won’t be accelerating into the bay to make it over the old style smooth plates, and allows the customer a smooth, steady entrance sequence into the wash.

Although a seemingly minor improvement, it is this attention to detail as well as the never ending pursuit of perfection by D&S that make the IQ 2.0 In Bay Automatics the best way to wash.

IQST_Side Brush profileAll IQ 2.0 Soft Touch systems are equipped with a redesigned side brush profile that features longer filaments at the top of the brush. The longer filaments improve cleaning of hard-to-reach areas along SUV rooflines and around luggage racks and rear spoilers – resulting in cleaner vehicles and happier customers (who become regular customers)!
These design improvements produce cleaner cars using less energy, water, and chemicals, making the IQ 2.0 In Bay Automatic Car Wash System the best way to wash.

All IQ 2.0 systems are equipped with newly designed Direct Inject wax functionality which provides greater reliability and faster change overs resulting in quicker wash times. Those quicker wash times translate into greater profitability wash after wash.

These design improvements reduce the total number of components within the system, which reduces system failures and improves reliability making the IQ 2.0 In Bay Automatics the best way to wash.


The IQ 2.0 Car Wash System is equipped with newly designed DEMA Injector and Rinse Manifolds to provide better flow, more efficient fluid delivery, and allow for reliable operation at various pressures. The result is reliable performance and increased customer satisfaction.

These design improvements contribute to reducing system failure and improving ease of maintenance with the streamlining of the chemical valve system, making the IQ 2.0 the best way to wash.
Improved Trifoam/Protectant Application System
All IQ 2.0 systems are equipped with a newly designed Trifoam/Protectant Application System that provides an improved customer experience, better vehicle coverage, and overall better color.
These design improvements contribute to reduced system failures and ease of maintenance with the elimination of chemical valves, making the IQ 2.0 In Bay Automatics the best way to wash!

All IQ 2.0 systems are equipped with newly relocated foamer block assemblies and additional shower heads to create a cleaner, sleeker look, generate greater vehicle coverage, and reduce the possibility of chemical leakage.

IQ 2.0 NEW Bearings & Housings

All IQ 2.0 Car Wash Systems are equipped with new and improved Carriage Wheel Housings that contribute to longer wheel life and consistent carriage movement throughout the entire wash cycle. To reduce maintenance and maximize uptime, these improved carriage wheel housings ensure tracking stability and reliability.

IQ 2.0 Bearings

All IQ 2.0 Car Wash Systems are equipped with new and improved Carriage Wheel Bearings for longer wheel life and consistent carriage movement throughout the entire wash cycle.

Today’s high-volume demands of retail and dealership locations require the IQ 2.0 platform to perform comfortably at a faster pace with more efficient wash times than ever before. To reduce maintenance and extend wheel replacement parameters, these improved wheel bearings ensure tracking stability and reliability!

IQ Side Move Mechanism

IQ 2.0 Soft Touch Car Wash Systems are equipped with redesigned side/carriage move mechanisms for increased component reliability and machine life as well as reduced downtime.

The sturdier design includes a larger motor and shaft and heavier duty gear box for higher durability and to help withstand side brush abuse. The design also features a protection plate to prevent damage and to better protect the side brush bearing. The mechanism is also easier to maintain and simplifies side brush motor servicing/replacement.

Reason 7 - IQ 2.0

The IQ 2.0 runs on lightweight t-slotted aluminum rails. Every IQ 2.0 comes equipped with rail lengths that intersect directly over a bracket to strengthen the overhead support system. The new design creates a sturdy, stable structure for the carriage to glide.

The new rail design – along with the dual carriage drive (Reason #1) – ensures smooth, reliable operation and reduces machine component wear.


The IQ 2.0 Soft Touch and Touch Free machines come equipped with a re-designed Heavy Duty Energy Chain to help reduce the risk of chain damage on high-volume machines.

Design, mechanical, and programming improvements to the IQ 2.0 platform allow for faster, more efficient, wash times than ever before. When coupled with high-volume demands of retail and dealership locations, a rugged heavy-duty energy chain is an essential component for reliable performance. With newly designed bearing material and shaft, this new heavy-duty chain is up to the task!


The IQ 2.0 Soft Touch is designed with large Anti-Fall Brackets to help reduce the risk of damage and to help prevent the carriage from coming off the overhead rails.

All car wash operators know that, eventually, some way, somehow, a vehicle WILL come in contact with their machine. It’s then that this feature becomes of paramount importance!

These new Anti-Fall Brackets consist of two extruded aluminum sections that extend down from the frame. The Anti-Fall Brackets are stronger in design to help secure the carriage if a vehicle comes in contact with the machine. When this occurs, the Anti-Fall Brackets only allow the IQ to shift approximately 2 inches, preventing a total fall.


The new IQ 2.0 Soft Touch is equipped with significantly larger, more robust side spin motors to minimize motor failure. These larger motors have a ¾” shaft and heavier-duty gearbox to help withstand side brush abuse due to the higher load bearing capability.

The reliability of the new motors is further enhanced by improved electrical cabling with a quick disconnect design to make future motor swap-outs in a fraction of the time. Also added is a new cover for the motor gearbox to prevent moisture ingression and corrosion.

The end result is a smoother, stronger, ultra-reliable side spin design that contributes to increased component reliability, reduced down time, and extended machine life.


IQ 2.0 advance scanning technology captures a high profile scan of every vehicle to identify the length, shape and size for optimal washing and accurate positioning on every vehicle – from small compacts to full-size pickups!

A light grid on each side of the machine scans the height and length of the vehicle, while an ultrasonic sensor measures the width and position of the vehicle in the bay. Details such as vehicle placement in the bay bumpers, luggage racks and spoilers are quickly identified during the scan, which is stored in the system memory.


All motors on the new IQ 2.0 are connected by multi-conductor wire and cable assemblies using sealed connectors and termination components to prevent motor water ingression. If there is a motor or encoder problem, replacing them is now faster and easier.


IQ 2.0 Soft Touch and Touch Free Car Wash Systems now come equipped with Dual Carriage Drive Motors for increased reliability and smoother operation. Along with improved carriage wheel housings, bearings, belts, and motor shafts, the IQ 2.0 Dual Carriage Drive provides lasting, reliable performance.
