Retrofit Master Controller for Village Marine and Offshore Marine Labs Watermakers
The Allen Engineering VMT Retrofit Master Controller operates similarly to the DISCONTINUED original Village Marine (or Offshore Marine Labs) master controller. Both controllers do the following: start and stop the low- and high-pressure pumps; manage a timed fresh water flush cycle; keep track of maintenance intervals; and monitor for pressure faults. There are a few key differences and enhancements.
For years, customers asked Village Marine for scheduled auto-flushing. The standard answer was "You don't want that." Well, we disagree.
With our Auto-Flush feature, you never have to initiate a fresh water flush cycle. Press "Run" to make water, then press "Stop" to stop making water. Our master controller does the rest. After a short delay, your desalinator begins its auto-flush cycle. Then, if you don't need to make water, the auto-flush will run again after a set number of days. You determine how long the cycle lasts. You determine how often the auto-flush cycle happens. You are in control.
For those of you who don't have an auto-flush system on your watermaker, don't worry. Auto-flushing is disabled by default, and you operate your desalinator as you always have.
At long last, programmable automatic flushing is available for your
Village Marine or Offshore Marine Labs watermaker. The watermaker can
now be left unattended for extended periods without the need for
preserving the membranes. You control how often, and how long, the fresh
water flush cycle runs. Also, with Auto-Flush enabled, your desalinator
will automatically flush after making water. System power and fresh
water pressure are required for this to function.
The backlight of the Allen Engineering VMT Retrofit
Master Controller remains off during standby mode. During normal
operation, the backlight color is white. During fresh water flushing and
when non-critical “caution” messages are displayed, the back-light
color is amber. In the event of a serious fault, a “warning” message is
displayed, and the back light color flashes red.
Our VMT Retrofit Controller will not allow a "run-dry" event. Even if
just running your low-pressure booster pump, the VMT Retrofit Controller
will protect your pump by shutting it down if pressure does not come up
in a reasonable time, or if pressure is lost while running. The
high-pressure pump will not start if feed pressure is inadequate, and
will shut down immediately if feed pressure is lost.
The Allen Engineering VMT Retrofit Master Controller is so easy to
install, almost anyone can do it. Two screwdrivers and a wrench are all
that are needed. Just remove your old 20-0386 (Village Marine Tec),
20-1348 (Offshore Marine Labs) or 20-1399 (USCG versions) master
controller, and mount our VMT Retrofit Master Controller. Plug it in,
and you are ready to go! No drilling. No cutting. No wiring
