Retrofit Master Controller for Village Marine and Offshore Marine Labs Watermakers, Remote Control Ready

Parker Hannifin discontinued manufacture of their Master Controller that operates the Village Marine (VMT) Pure Water Series, Squirt Series, and Stowaway Series, as well as the Offshore Marine Labs (OML) Aegean watermakers. Allen Engineering comes to the rescue with our new VMT Retrofit Master Controller to replace your failed OEM controller.

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.

Automatic Flushing

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.

Multi-color Backlight

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.

Built-In Protection

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.

Easy Installation

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 modifications.

    The Allen retrofit controller was an easy upgrade for our village marine 600. Installation was about 20 minutes
    The screen is easy to read and the multiple colors made alarms and function easy to identify.
    A great product!
