Esslingen, 25 June 2019 – Camping is becoming more and more digital and recreational vehicles are morphing into mobile smart homes. In keeping with this trend, Eberspaecher will be on hand at the Caravan Salon in Düsseldorf to demonstrate how camping enthusiasts can use voice command to ensure their vehicle temperature remains comfortable. In Hall 13, Stand A 11, the thermal management expert will be exhibiting the Airtronic 2, a fuel operated air heater for greater comfort. Other highlights include the bike shows performed by Eberspaecher brand ambassador Danny MacAskill on the first weekend of the fair.
With the new Eberspaecher Skill for Amazon Alexa, camping comfort has become even more digital: with the voice command “Alexa, open my pre-heater and heat my car,” RV owners can easily ensure that their vehicle is pleasantly warm. The new skill also makes it possible to monitor the temperature in the vehicle while on the road. All that’s needed for this is the EasyStart Web operating element in combination with Alexa-enabled speakers or the Amazon Alexa App. Alternatively, the pre-heater can also be controlled digitally via smartphone, smartwatch, and any other Internet-enabled mobile device. Those who prefer more of a classic approach can conveniently operate their pre-heater with a radio remote control or the permanently installed EasyStart Pro.
A pleasant climate in all weather conditions
Whether you’re in the midst of the first cool fall days, winter camping in the mountains, or experiencing a sudden shift in the weather, Eberspaecher’s vehicle heaters will always keep your RV at the right temperature – regardless of the conditions. The Diesel heaters ensure the greatest degree of independence that’s possible while travelling. The Airtronic 2 creates a feel-good atmosphere and is particularly durable. Specially developed for motorhomes, the Airtronic M2 Recreational has a greater air flow rate. This is particularly suitable for installations with long air flow systems. Another advantage is how quietly it operates, which is made possible by the stepless control of the heat output. In addition, the new metering pump is acoustically optimized – the “ticking” sound while extracting fuel is thus thing of the past. The Hydronic S3 Economy is the efficient, compact water heater in the Esslingen-based company’s product portfolio.
This year, Eberspaecher is showing the Plugtronic electric vehicle heater for manufacturers in particular: when integrated into a RV’s cooling circuit, the compact water heater can simply be connected to the 230 V socket. Especially convenient for quiet camping nights: Since the Plugtronic receives its energy from the socket, it is completely silent. Combined with the Hydronic S3 Economy, motorhome owners also have more heating power on hand for frosty nights. On top of that, they can remain self-sufficient thanks to the fuel operated water heater.
