Reduced installation time and labor allowing for mounting and connection of eight switches at one time versus individually. Reduced wire harness complexity, using one harness to our controller to accommodate up to 32 circuits. Reduced harness size offers an overall reduction in weight, improving the operational efficiency of the equipment. Increase in switch lifecycle over traditional electromechanical switches.
Touchscreen Control Module Features:
Voltage feedback (vehicles battery/alternator voltage) Amperage meter for each switch gives you the status of how much current each accessory is drawing Board temperature feedback (shown on screen) Customization: legends (3 lines of text) Automatic backlighting off after 30 minutes of being inactivity Automatic power off after 6 hours of being inactive or engine not running (Deep sleep mode) One touch off function One second hold on off button shuts all circuits down Automatic system shut down when the touchscreen is unplugged Backlight dimming Multiple Source select (One touchscreen can control up to 32 circuits) Come with its own mounting bracket. Bluetooth for use in programming the touchscreen. **The primary reason for the Bluetooth integrated into the Touchscreen is for programming purposes, and not for remote control due to the limited range.Touchscreen housings are precisionmachined billet aluminum which contributes to the distance limitations.Ranges may vary from 5 feet up to15 feet depending on the location of the Touchscreen, the surroundings, phone type, phone cover, and many other variables.
Additional Touchscreen Mounting Options (sold separately): RAM-201U Double Socket Arm for 1-inch RAM Ball (Must have this in order to mount touchscreen)RAM-238U Base with 1-inch RAM Ball (For fixed surface mounting and interconnect between double socket arm)RAM-224-1U Suction Cup Base with 1-inch RAM Ball (For fixed surface mounting and interconnect between double socket arm)
