Award for level app
Truma LevelControl has won the 2017 DCC Technology Award – a prize awarded by the German Camping Club (DCC) for accessories that make caravanning safer and more comfortable.
The device uses ultrasound to measure the gas level in a gas cylinder and then sends this data via the Truma iNet Box to a smartphone via Bluetooth or SMS. In the Truma App, customers see a detailed overview of their gas supplies in kilograms and as a percentage, and are also given an indication of how long the remaining gas will last – wherever they are, either in the vehicle or out and about. Practical, user-friendly and reliable – these are the attributes that convinced the DCC jury.
LevelControl adds another useful, practical feature to the Truma iNet System. And it works with all common European steel and aluminium cylinders.
The experts also praised the fact that the handy device attaches easily to the bottom of the gas cylinder with the integrated magnets and links to the iNet Box. An optional clamping sheet is available for aluminium cylinders.
Another positive feature is that LevelControl runs on batteries and already complies with the latest explosion protection specifications that will be required in future for DIN EN 1949, and can therefore safely be used inside the gas compartment.
