Dometic Marine to Launch Nine New Products at IBEX

Dometic will show several new innovations, including a thermoelectric Cup Cooler, the VARC48 Variable Capacity Chiller, the SeaLand ECO Holding Tank Vent Filter and the Dometic Smart Touch Integrated Intelligence Control remote monitoring system; on display at booth #819

Tampa, Fla. – Sept. 22, 2014Dometic Marine, a division of Dometic Group, a global provider of leisure products for the marine, truck, caravan, motor home and automotive markets, today announced that it will introduce nine new products at this year’s International Boatbuilders’ Exhibition and Conference (IBEX), to be held in Tampa, Fla., Sept. 30-Oct. 2. Among the new products on display at booth #819 will be a thermoelectric cup cooler, a variable capacity chiller, a holding tank vent filter and a monitoring and control system for Dometic equipment on-board.

“From sanitation equipment to wireless communications to refrigeration, Dometic’s 2014 lineup of forward-thinking technologies offers boat owners greater enjoyment and comfort than ever before. We have several industry firsts this year, including Dometic’s thermoelectric Cup Cooler and the Smart Touch Integrated Intelligence Control (STIIC) software for remote monitoring, the first products of their kind for the marine industry. We’re also excited to be introducing an energy- and maintenance-saving variable capacity chiller, a true innovation in marine cooling,” said Frank Marciano, President, Dometic Americas.

This year’s IBEX product lineup includes:

Dometic Cup Cooler The industry’s first thermoelectric refrigerated cup holder for boats. The Cup Cooler keeps drinks refrigerator-cold, and can replace most standard cup holders onboard pleasure boats or workboats. With the Cup Cooler, your last sip is even colder than your first. It allows boaters to keep a can, bottle or any appropriately sized beverage container chilled on even the hottest days, something that a typical cup holder or can koozie can’t begin to accomplish.

Dometic VARC48 — The Dometic variable capacity VARC48 chiller is the first of its kind to adjust capacity output based on the current load demand. It is highly efficient, providing just the right amount of needed cooling, reducing energy costs and the size of generator needed. Its steady operation maintains a more constant load on the generator. Instead of turning on or off, it speeds up or slows down as needed to produce more or fewer BTUs. Also, there is no in-rush of current when starting, reducing demand on the entire electrical system.

The SeaLand ECO Vent Filter — A versatile and environmentally friendly filter that removes odors from a boat sanitation system’s holding tank vent line. The innovative new filter design provides the most efficient filtration by forcing more malodorous air to flow through activated charcoal media. It also offers boat owners a one-size-fits-all replacement for existing SeaLand vent filters.

Dometic Smart Touch Integrated Intelligence Control (STIIC) — A revolutionary and user-friendly software that connects a boat’s Dometic systems and interactively communicates with the boat owner. Accessible from a mobile app, STIIC allows boat owners (or their captains or technicians) to monitor all their Dometic systems from one location, such as a car or office, via mobile phone, tablet or computer using a WiFi, Ethernet or an RS485 connection. STIIC can be used to check a system’s status, change settings, turn it on, turn it off, or diagnose a problem.

The four new products above were submitted for IBEX Innovation Awards. Winners will be announced during the Industry Awards Breakfast held on the first morning of IBEX, on Tuesday, Sept. 30.

Other new products that Dometic will exhibit include:

  • Dometic Sea Xchange Watermakers The SX series and the new XTC series will be on display. Both models produce up to 2,200 GPD of potable water from seawater. The XTC is the first and only automatic watermaker to have mechanical redundancy and the Dometic STIIC interface for remote interactivity via the internet.
  • Dometic Spot Zero Water Purifiers Three Spot Zero models will be on display, including the new Double Pass system. Spot Zero systems purify dockside water and remove 95-99% of total dissolved solids, viruses, cysts, and bacteria. The water provides spot-free cleaning without drying surfaces by hand. The Double Pass system lets you purify water from two sources: Your dockside water and the output from your onboard watermaker system.
  • CD Series of Drawer Refrigerators – The energy-efficient, durable CD Series refrigerators are available in three space-saving models – the new CD20, offering 20-liter capacity, the CD30, offering 30-liter capacity and the CD-50, with 50 liters of capacity.
  • CRD50 Drawer Refrigerator – With a 50-liter capacity including a removable 4-liter freezer compartment, the new CRD-50 has a durable metal frame construction able to withstand harsh marine conditions and is available in stainless steel.
  • Cuddy II Compact Air Conditioner – Designed for small cabins, this new 3,500 BTU air conditioner is powered by 12V DC or used dockside with a suitable battery charger. It draws power gently at startup for a progressive low starting surge.
