Caravan Camper Trailer Monitoring Battery Water Temp Automate RV Wireless Mesh Control
SIMARINE is a complete monitoring system for batteries, current flows, tanks, temperature, pitch and roll angles, and environment. It is made up of a PICO display and input gathering modules and shunts.
The PICO offers you a complete monitoring system for your 12/24 volt battery. With many connectivity options and ease of use, this device provides you with a simple overview of all important details regarding your battery (voltage, current, amp hours, battery capacity in%, battery temperature) and also regarding tank levels and temperatures. Equipped with a 3.5" LCD TFT screen, high-resolution IPS technology with high brightness, optimal color reproduction, wide viewing angles and a virtually indestructible Gorilla glass with anti-reflection coating, the PICO Blue is suitable for both indoor and outdoor installation. Thanks to special capacitive CapSense® touch buttons, you can easily operate your PICO even with wet fingers. You can also monitor individual loads (refrigerators) or generators (wind generator) via a 4-fold measuring shunt.
Maximum monitoring capability: 6 x battery banks with "Real-Time Battery Health ™" (monitors current, voltage and temperature), 6 x battery voltages, 14 tank levels or voltage sensors, 14 environment levels like CO2 or cabin pressure, 10 temperatures, 24 individual currents, one inclinometer sensor with pitch and roll readings.
PICO’s display unit is made of a sleek anodized aluminum casing and a thick Gorilla® Glass with Anti-Reflective coating protecting the optically bonded high-contrast 3.5 inch IPS LCD display. It’s water and dust proof and can be mounted both indoors and outdoors. The screen brightness is automatically adjusted with a light sensor. The device is operated by four water tolerant CapSense® touch buttons.
Automate RV guides users to maximize independence without loss of convenience. Users develop a good understanding the “time to go” for battery, LPG and water.
- When energy and water are limited, users are conscious of over-consuming. This can add inconvenience to a well deserved holiday.
- Lifting the LPG bottle to guess the quantity remaining is a hassle.
- You lose track of the time under a welcoming hot shower.
- As the crema drips from the coffee machine, you keep an eye on the battery level.
The system captures energy and water usage information with both a wired and wireless network. The wireless network does most of the work. It doesn’t need the internet to function. Installed on this network are economical energy and water flow devices plus the switches to operate them. Every time an LED light is turned on, the power used is automatically stored. Likewise with water flow. Devices like water pumps, slide-outs or lighting are all controlled by secure wireless. The security of the network is well protected. It operates in an Australian Govt approved 900Mhz spectrum equipped with encryption and anti-jamming. Each controller is also a repeater, strengthening the “mesh” Network.
Complex energy and water usage is translated into “time to go”. Users know if they have enough energy (battery, LPG) and water for the camping period.
Automate RV uses AI (Artificial Intelligence) to do this. It calculates the “run rate” over periods tailored for the user.
Automate RV turns a battery voltage gauge or water tank level meter into a wireless, finger-tip or even voice control system. Its easy to participate in sustainability when systems are “ fun to use”.
