Control your watermaker from anywhere
HP Watermakers has launched the HP Bibi allowing boat owners full automatic control of their watermakers.
Users of the device will be able to check every process of the watermaker or simply to turn it on and off from any worldwide location meaning that time-consuming and uncomfortable manual checks are no longer required.
“We had to go down into the hot and narrow engine room,” said Davide Tezzon from HP Watermakers. Even with the semi-automatic watermakers introduced in the 1990s, which still dominate the market today, “[we were] still going down into the same engine room and checking the valves and manually regulating pressure."
The Bibi system is compatible with every automatic watermaker using MODBUS or CANBUS protocols and allows the user to access any of the watermaker’s functions and data logs directly from the internet.
“Bibi is the first user friendly interface for watermakers. Compact, easy to install and ready to communicate,” said Davide.
The system is connected to a MODBUS protocol port on the watermaker. This interfacing board is connected bidirectionally to the internet, so is able to both send information and receive inputs, such as alarms and alerts.
Compatible with Andriod and IoS, the system works with a cloud application and authorised users are able to start and stop the watermaker, reset the alarms, monitor the machine’s operation and access the historical logs and parameters from any internet-connected device.
HP watermakers are available in the UK through AJS Technical Services.
