Useful information, Wireless controller (wico), Switching on the instrument – IKA EUROSTAR 20 high speed control User Manual
The EUROSTAR 20 high speed control stirrer is controlled via a
Wireless Controller (WiCo). If the Wireless Controller is attached to
the EUROSTAR station, data exchange between the stirrer (sta-
tion) and Wireless Controller is performed via the contacts (E, Q, see
Fig. 1). "Home" symbol appears on the display of the Wireless
Controller. If the Wireless Controller is connected to the stirrer (sta-
tion) via a USB (Universal Serial Bus) cable, the
If the Wireless Controller is neither bolted to the EUROSTAR station
nor connected to the stirrer (station) via a USB cable, the data exchange
between the stirrer and Wireless Controller is performed via Bluetooth
In this case the Bluetooth
symbol is displayed.
Depending on the structure of the building, the Wireless Controller
can be operated at a distance of up to 150 m from the EUROSTAR
station, using the Bluetooth
The Wireless Controller can be attached to the stirrer (station), or
can be installed in a safe place easily accessible by the user while the
stirrer is running.
If the Wireless Controller is attached to the EUROSTAR station, the
rechargeable battery is automatically recharged via the contacts (Q,
see Fig. 1). The rechargeable battery can also be charged via the USB
port of the Wireless Controller (see “Charging the RB 1 battery
pack (rechargeable battery)“ in the “Securing“ section).
If the stirrer (station) generates vibration, the
Wireless Controller must be bolted to the stirrer
using the screw (P, see Fig. 1), or positioned remotely from the stir-
rer (station) whilst it is running.

The socket used must be earthed (fitted with
If these conditions have been met, the machine is ready for operation
when the mains plug is plugged in.
If these conditions are not met, safe operation is not guaranteed and
the machine could be damaged.
Before the first time to use the EUROSTAR stirrer, fasten the Wireless Con-
troller (WiCo) to the station with the screw (P, see Fig. 1), so that the
rechargeable battery (RB1 battery pack) in the Wireless Controller
can be charged.
After the device has been switched on at the main switch (A, see Fig.
1) the device name and software version appear in the display (C, see
Fig. 1) of the Wireless Controller (D, see Fig. 1). After a few seconds
a signal sounds, the last setting of speed is displayed (mode B). Once
the working screen is displayed, the stirrer is ready for operation.
If the Wireless Controller is switched on and is not attached to the stirrer
(the station), the green LED bar (G, see Fig. 1) and the green Bluetooth
LED (F, see Fig. 1) on the stirrer (station) will light up.
Make sure that the speed selected is appropriate for the trial run. If in
doubt, use the rotary knob (B, see Fig. 1) to select the slowest speed.
To start or stop the stirrer function, press the rotary knob (B, see Fig. 1).
The controls of the Wireless Controller can be disabled by pressing
the button (L)
, so that no inadvertent changes are made while
the device is running (the key symbol

In emergency the stirrer (station) can be
switched off by pressing the “safe STOP“
button (I, see Fig.1) on the front of the stirrer. In this case the LED
bar (G, see Fig.1) changes color from green to red, and flashes.
A message appears in the display, advising that the EUROSTAR
stirrer (station) has been forcibly switched off. To restart the stirrer,
switch the main switch (A, see Fig. 1) of the EUROSTAR stirrer (sta-
tion) OFF and ON.
If the Bluetooth
function of the Wireless Controller is active, the
user can use the Bluetooth
search button (H) to search for the
Wireless Controller. A beep signal will be audible even if the Wireless
Controller is switched off.
