Vitals provides advanced warning of potential equipment failures with an array of smart alarms that alert you to potential problems before they become catastrophic. The specific benefit of this centralized monitoring and alarm system is that it can be easily configured to suit your specific boat. Be it the temperature of a bearing or the cycle times of your bilge pumps, Vitals will monitor your vessel's systems and alert you when any piece of monitored equipment is outside of its defined running parameters.
With Vitals, you can set early warning signals at thresholds relevant to the specific equipment that needs monitoring. This improves the accuracy of alarms and avoids nuisance notifications. When an alarm is activated, the Vitals menu will accurately pinpoint exactly what the alarm pertains to, and corrective action can be taken immediately, with no wasted downtime trying to identify the problem.
Vitals is designed to suit a vessel of any size, and is easy and intuitive to set up and configure. Most importantly, Vitals offers an early warning system that can prevent an otherwise simple problem from resulting in an expensive repair, downtime, and the lost enjoyment of your vessel. Enjoy your voyage knowing that you are protecting your investment and protecting the safety of those on board with Vitals.
