Webasto highlights SmarTemp 3.0, SmarTemp 3.0 bluetooth controllers

Webasto North America, commercial vehicle and aftermarket equipment manufacturer, has announced the introduction of its new SmarTemp 3.0 and SmarTemp 3.0 Bluetooth controllers. The advanced new devices provide ease of use and control of both Webasto fuel-operated air heaters and fuel-operated coolant heaters, all from a single unit.

Fully programmable within a seven-day period, the SmarTemp 3.0 makes air and coolant system run times easily adjustable and is designed to work exclusively with Webasto air and coolant heaters. The unit’s backlit LCD screen brightens while in use, automatically dimming itself a few moments after interaction. The SmarTemp 3.0 supports English, French and Spanish languages, as well as Fahrenheit or Celsius temperature scales. Main menu options allow users to select and customize timed run times, low voltage disconnect thresholds, password protection and includes automated preventive maintenance reminders to start the heaters every 30 days. If the unit ever loses power, it still keeps its previous program settings, but now also retains date and time settings, eliminating the time-consuming task of reentering data.

Fleet managers can define system settings and preferences, can control individual heater functions when in range and can universally “mob” program an entire fleet’s heater settings and everything in between via the Webasto app. Managers can program and control their whole fleet through one phone and grant specific permissions to others on their service team, allowing them to help manage multiple vehicle profiles in multiple cities, states and geographic regions.

A unique parking brake input feature disables air and coolant heating functions when a vehicle’s parking brake is released. The feature allows the heaters to perform their intended duties while a vehicle is idle, but prevents unnecessary fuel use while it and its operator are on duty.

Enriched diagnostic capabilities built into the Webasto app enable users to actually access information that resides in the electronic control units in Webasto heating devices and communicates directly with the device.

Users can design and print customized diagnostic reports, which can be used for a variety of measurements and purposes, including warranty service.

Troubleshooting capabilities built into the app take users to TechWebasto.com, where they can access installer/user manuals, FAQs and other technical support assets. When necessary, the site can even locate and direct drivers in the field to the closest Webasto dealer or authorized service center.
