Navico Group, a provider of integrated products and systems, has just announced the launch of the new Fathom® e-Power System, an integrated lithium-ion auxiliary power management system that delivers reliable power and unprecedented performance for the marine and RV industry.
The Fathom system offers advanced digital controls and power consumption monitoring, providing information on demand and giving the user complete control.
“Navico Group’s diverse range of products and brands allows us to offer advanced integrated technologies, such as the Fathom e-Power System,” said Brett Dibkey, President of Navico Group.
“To transform the navigation experience we are focusing on our ACES (Autonomy Connectivity Electrification & Shared Access) strategy, an important component of which is electrification. The advanced Fathom system offers reliable power management and control, enabling users to better understand and manage their power needs.”
Features of Navico’s system
The Fathom e-Power System is a fully vertically integrated solution that enables energy storage, power conversion and digital monitoring and control by combining the powerful components offered by Navico Group’s industry-leading brands, including Mastervolt, BEP, CZone®, Ancor and Blue Sea®.
The system allows users to extend their sailing time away from the charging source thanks to increased battery capacity and effective power management, while eliminating the harmful noise, vibration and fumes associated with traditional generator use. In addition, an intuitive user interface allows for easy monitoring and control of power on and off via multifunctional display or from mobile via smart devices.
A customised system
Available in customisable 12 V, 24 V and 48 V kits, Fathom is designed to integrate seamlessly into a wide range of boats and recreational vehicles and offers a simplified experience for both manufacturers and their customers. Hardware and software elements are tested and validated to ensure compatibility with Fathom e-Power System and third-party hardware.
More customised kits are planned to be launched throughout 2023.
“Fathom’s customisable kits are designed to simplify electrification for our OEM partners, namely construction sites,” Dibkey added. “The pre-configured kits integrate seamlessly into any boat or vehicle, allowing manufacturers to better meet customers’ specific needs.”
“Lithium-ion batteries for marine applications have received a significant boost over the past decade,” said Eric Lindquist, VP and General Manager, Power Systems at Navico Group.
“They last longer, recharge faster, have a smaller weight and footprint, and save time and money in the long run while minimising the negative impact on the environment. With so many advantages, it is not surprising that consumers are increasingly choosing lithium-ion batteries. We are proud to be at the forefront of this field and to be able to provide the most advanced power management system.”
