The diesel heating installation set for boats and yachts
For many years, Autoterm heaters, which have become known under the names Planar 2D and Planar 44D, have proven themselves in travel vehicles on land and at sea. The product has since been given a new name, but the robust, reliable technology remains.
This is also done by the other advantages of the air heater, now called Autoterm Air. Without loss of guarantee, they can also be installed in campers or boats by laypeople. Of course, the installation instructions and installation guidelines must be observed, which guarantee professional installation and thus safe, perfectly functioning operation of the heating.
All Autoterm heaters are recognizably tested for safety through the award of the E-mark (e2). They can therefore be installed without registration.
What does this heater "Marine"
There are no special heaters for the marine sector, the heater itself is 100% identical to the models installed in land vehicles. Special "marine kits" are offered on the market again and again, but all of them merely represent a combination of some components, but do not contain a special heater.
What advantage does our marine kit offer then?
Since every boat or ship is different, we have long refused to offer a “marine kit”. There is just more than one type of hull wall penetration, more than one type of heating installation, etc. That means a fixed kit makes no sense at all, unless we simply conceal the variety of possibilities and simply deliver SOMETHING. Unfortunately, that doesn't suit us, so we thought about something:
The individually combinable kit for the boat heater installation
We have designed our shop so that the relevant components can be freely configured.
Due to the possibility of an individual combination, we have the right solution for every installation situation.
Autoterm heaters for water and land vehicles
The boat heating installation set includes a diesel air heater from Autoterm.
Heaters are available with just under 2 (Autoterm Air 2D) or 4 kW (Autoterm Air 4D) heating power.
Basically, the heater should be selected to match the volume of the room to be heated and not with too much heating power, since constant running at only the lowest level leads to soot in the combustion chamber. Occasional burning off at the highest power level is advisable in any case and ensures a long service life for the heater.
Both the 2 kW and the 4 kW heating are available for 12 V or 24 V on-board voltage. When ordering, please select power and supply voltage accordingly.
Autoterm heaters can also be installed by the boat owner without loss of guarantee (manufacturer's instructions for installation must of course be observed).
They are also provided with an e-mark (e2). This means that your installation does not require any registration or acceptance.
Independent height adjustment
Autoterm diesel air parking heaters have an altitude kit that automatically adjusts the fuel supply to changing air pressure conditions. A boat tour on Lake Titiccaca at 3800 m above sea level. So nothing stands in the way.
Different control panels can be used to operate the heating. (Wire is 1,80m extensions are avialable)
PU-5: A simple control element with a rotary control for setting a power level. A separately available temperature sensor can be connected for regulation via temperature mode.
PU-27: An electronic control panel with OLED display and integrated temperature sensor (cable length 1.8 m) that also has a timer function. Menu navigation in English and Russian, operating instructions also in German.
The heating wiring harness has an emergency switching input, which is often used to use its own remote control. The heater can then be regulated or switched on and off via permanent contact or a pulse signal.
Operating voltage: 12 V or 24 V.
