What is Part-NET?
Part-Net is the world’s first and only, user friendly interface for desalinators, easy to install and ready to communicate with all plotters on the market, Garmin, Raymarine, Furuno, Simrad, B&G, Lowrance. HP Part-NET single interface, designed to control HP’s RP TRONIC series fully automatic desalinators.
The goal of HP Watermakers, which underlies Part-NET, is to bring the watermaker into the hands of the users (shipowner, captain), involving them in the choice of equipment and accessories. This way they can access the HP Watermakers application directly from the plotters of any brand on the market, and while navigating, and they can use the watermaker, start it, stop it, control it, and access all functions without taking their eyes off the navigation.
You will be able to have control over the startup the shutdown the resets the settings the errors the interac- tive manual of your watermaker, thanks to the Part-NET interface or on the new 7” TOUCH SCREEN remote control panel.
– The 7″ Part-NET touch screen is a hub that exchanges BUS signals from the watermaker’s PLC and turns it into protocols to send to its screen, navigation plotters, and the Internet.
– Part-NET is equipped with an RJ45 port to connect directly to the plotter’s hubs or Internet switch. Communication through this port is direct, so once the Ethernet cable is connected to the plotters, the desalter hardware is automatically detected and all pages displayed by the browser on the touch screen will also be displayed on the plotters. On some models such as Raymarine Axiom, the HP Watermaker logo is shown on the app page by default even if the hardware is not connected. On Garmin, Simrad, B&G and Furuno the logo is shown only if the hardware is connected to the plotter.
– Once the hardware is connected, the user can control all the functions of the HP Watermakers RP TRONIC series desalinators directly from the chart plotters by browsing through the different pages available.
– If there is an Internet connection on board, Part-NET can send the same html pages over the Internet, where the machine will be controlled from its dedicated cloud portal for the BiBi® remote control system.
