The growing popularity of motorhomes and caravans in New Zealand has also seen a rise in the number of devices and conveniences connecting to the power supply…….which can quickly drain the batteries or even overload them.
To help manage the demand, battery technology company Projecta has now extended its INTELLI-RV range of RV and Caravan power management systems to include a second Bluetooth compatible model, known as the PM300-BT.
Previously available only on the range-topping PM400, the Bluetooth feature allows users to control and monitor key electronics from the comfort and ease of their smart phone using the official app.
Like the PM400, the lower cost PM300-BT comes with a remote LCD screen that offers information on battery/solar charging (Volts, AMPs, SOC, time remaining), up to four water tank level inputs with pump control, a load switch and night /silent mode for quiet operation.
The main wiring unit features 14 fused outputs for wiring up 12V appliances and lighting, WAGO terminals for easy installation, plus a host of protection features and sensors to ensure easy, safe operation and monitoring of electricals. The all-in-one power management solution offers 30A (12V) 5-stage charging, 35A power supply, 30A MPPT solar charging and 100A DC VSR.
“As more technology is introduced to motorhomes and caravans, people want to be able to monitor and manage their various systems to ensure they are working optimally,” says Tim Paterson, National Sales Manager for Griffiths Equipment, which distributes Projecta products in New Zealand.
IDC25/45 Charge Link
Projecta has also released a new IDC ‘Charge Link’ that allows users of INTELLI-RV power management systems (excluding the PM100 model) to install its popular IDC25 and IDC45 DC chargers in parallel and achieve full compatibility and communication between the two systems.
A broad range of batteries including GEL, AGM, Wet, Calcium and Lithium can be effectively managed using Projecta’s IDC25 and IDC45 chargers.
Projecta has also added several sensors and extra length cables to the range of INTELLI-RV accessories in order to provide more versatile options for installation.
The new accessories cater to installers working with larger vehicles and include a 200mm Water Sensor with 7.5m of cable, a Battery Sensor with 10m of cable, plus 10m and 15m cables for the remote LED and LCD displays that feature in the PM200, PM300, PM300-BT and PM400.
These Projecta Intelli-RV and Caravanning power management systems and their accessories are now available from leading automotive outlets throughout New Zealand.
