Ahead of the January launch, REDARC has given us a glimpse and early details of its new Total Vehicle Management System (TVMS).
The TVMS uses a more familiar but new in-vehicle mounted display that teams with its bring Your Own Device ‘BYOD’ iOS or android app that allows the control of the electronic devices in any style of recreational vehicle. For example, the REDARC TVMS allows you to turn on or off lights, inverter, water pumps and other loads such as televisions, electric steps and fridges. It also offers the ability to monitor water levels, temperature, energy (battery power) consumption and storage, with the battery information available when coupled with REDARC’s Manager range battery management system.
REDARC’s national sales and marketing manager, Ben Marsh, said, “As technology changes and demand increases to bring the creature comforts from home, the REDARC TVMS takes the stress and complication out of travelling by allowing users to monitor and control devices at a glance.”
“It’s easy to keep an eye on things, with the REDARC TVMS,” Marsh said. “You can monitor battery levels, turn loads on and off as you see fit and turn the lights on or off all from your phone with our exclusive app.”
The display and app use a modern, user-friendly interface, by incorporating an easy to understand system layout. The robust display has been built and tested to withstand Australia’s tough and varied environmental conditions, while the app brings together REDARC’s expertise on innovation and continual investment into R & D and manufacturing quality products in Australia.
Thanks to its simple connections and CAN Architecture, which requires less wiring, crimping and fusing of components the TVMS offers easy installation. With multiple systems combined into one screen or a wireless device, the end user will benefit from easy-to-use system integration.
REDARC is working closely with RV manufacturers to integrate the new TVMS into recreational vehicles at point of manufacture with continued testing underway. Expect to see the Total Vehicle Management System available for fitment in campers, caravans and motorhomes early in 2018.
