Never turn up with a flat battery again, says Projecta

There’s nothing worse than exploring and adventuring only to find that your battery is dead on arrival at your destination and just when you need it most.
Projecta says its Intelli-IQ Smart Display (IQD2) makes this dreaded scenario a thing of the past.
IQD2 is the communication hub for the Projecta DC system, enabling users to create a smart home on wheels.
It provides complete control of the DC System, including charge rate and battery voltage.
IQD2 is the first of five phases of the Projecta Internet of Things (IoT)* System, and Projecta says it ensures both scalability and allows the integration of future products and technologies.
Projecta’s IQD2 links connected products within the Projecta ecosystem, providing a new way of connecting and controlling devices without being physically hardwired or relying on Bluetooth.
Projecta says you can think of the unit as being the ‘brain’ in a portable smart home system, giving users total and reliable control over their auxiliary 12V equipment.
With this functionality, Projecta says owners will never turn up at a campsite with a flat battery and a warm fridge again.

Don’t get stuck in 2024
Projecta says its IQD2 and the IDC25X DC to DC charger are designed for the future and will seamlessly integrate with the upcoming phases of Projecta IoT.
This means that as technology advances, the IQD2 and the IDC25X are prepared and ready to adapt and upgrade the smart home on wheels.
Projecta Senior Brand Manager, James Pearson, said the new IntellI-IQ Smart Display unlocked the full potential of the IDC25X DC to DC charger and other Projecta equipment.
“When paired with the IDC25X charger, the INTELLI-IQ Smart Display further elevates the charger by offering total and convenient control – in combination, the technology is unique and industry-leading for the segment,” James said.
“Many competitor systems feature Bluetooth control where the appliance connects directly to the smart device.
“These systems can be subject to functionality issues with range and connectivity; this is often because the appliance is mounted in the engine bay or another area shielded by layers of metal, causing a barrier for the Bluetooth signal.
“In comparison, the IQD2 offers automotive grade communication meaning no dropouts along with an easy set-up.”
Further, Projecta says the IQD2 takes the award-winning DC DC charger IDC25X to the next level and allows for both scalability and implementation of future products and technologies.
The IDC25X can charge any battery chemistry that is currently on the market, but with the IQD2 and the Intelli-IQ App, Projecta says defined profile settings can be changed and “allow for not yet invented battery chemistries to be charged.”
This also allows scalability when the user needs additional power.
The user can start with a 100Ah battery and one IDC25X unit. However, as needs evolve – perhaps with the introduction of luxuries typically reserved for home use, such as air conditioning, an induction cooktop, or a coffee machine, additional power and charging capabilities become necessary.
With the IQD2 installed, Projecta says it possible to add on up to five IDC25X units where two x 25A chargers become one 50A unit, three x 25A becomes 75A and so on.
The IQD2 also allows individual control of other devices like fridges, lights, compressors and inverters with the use of Projecta smart relays.
Each relay has a unique code – once you rename the relay, you can turn the device on and off.
The use of these smart relays means the Intelli-IQ Smart Display screen can control up to 60 devices.
Projecta invites you to imagine being ready for bed and you see that the outside lights are still on – with a few taps on your smartphone in the Intelli-IQ App, the lights are turned off without having to leave the bed.

Mount it anywhere
The Intelli-IQ Smart Display unit features a two-inch display screen and can be mounted anywhere the user deems suitable due to its single-wire connectivity, and the cable is easy to manipulate around a vehicle or a caravan.
Owners can also extend, shorten, or even run their wire through a trailer plug. The unit itself can be mounted flush, at an angle, or even upside down.
The screen features an ultra-wide display angle, a capacitive touch screen that supports ‘smooth touch’ with enhanced sensitivity, and swipe-to-change screens.
Additionally, it includes automatic brightness adjust and the ability to further customise settings using the Intelli-IQ App.
Through the app the user can monitor at some distance from the vehicle and program various alarms and notifications to be alerted before it is too late, meaning users should never experience the inconvenience of a flat battery.
The Intelli-IQ Smart Display can be purchased from leading automotive, caravan, camping and specialist battery / generator outlets Australia-wide, and is backed by a generous five-year warranty.
