Mods4cars RemoteKEY Comfort Control for Porsche Now in a New Housing

The RemoteKEY comfort control for the Porsche models 997 Carrera Coupe, 987 Cayman and 987 Boxster now has a new housing. Mods4cars retrofit module, with smart features, provides higher user comfort. Among other things, windows can be operated via the original remote control.

Las Vegas, NV (USA), January 15, 2018 — Mods4cars has reworked the design of its RemoteKEY comfort modules. As of now, the RemoteKEY control system for the Porsche 997 Carrera Coupe, the 987 Cayman and the 987 Boxster will be dispatched in the new casing. The RemoteKEY is a retrofitted controller, which delivers the Porsche owner with more comfort and numerous additional functions.

The RemoteKEY comfort control makes it possible to open and close the windows via the existing original remote control. The Chirp Function, if required, allows a short horn signal to be heard when the central locking system is actuated. Thanks to the RemoteKEY module, the central locking system locks or unlocks during or after the journey. When the reverse gear is engaged, the passenger’s mirror can fold down automatically and serve as a parking aid.

With RemoteKEY unit installed, the convertible top of the Porsche 987 Boxster can be operated via One-Touch – even in a standing position. In the Porsche 997 Coupe, the window comfort mode allows the passenger window to be closed via One-Touch.

The comfort control can be completely deactivated as required. All functions can be programmed according to personal wishes. The USB port added on the RemoteKEY is used for this purpose. Making it possible to configure the controller on the PC and to implement software updates, which are provided free of charge by Mods4cars.

Since 2002, Mods4cars has been developing retrofitting comfort and convertible controls for all common vehicle brands. “The basic idea of our products is to make the operation of individual processes of the vehicle easier and more comfortable,” says PR spokesman Sven Tornow.

“With the new housing we have now also simplified the installation of our modules,” Sven Tornow continues. Two LEDs attached to the module provide assistance during installation. Thanks to the narrower shape, the RemoteKEY can be installed more easily in the vehicle. Less plastic and the absence of screws also make a contribution to the environment.

Mods4cars retrofit top and comfort modules are available for the following vehicle brands: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Chevrolet, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volvo and Volkswagen.

The RemoteKEY comfort for Porsche models 997 Carrera Coupe, 987 Cayman and 987 Boxster is available for 249,00 Euro + tax.

About Mods4cars:
Mods4cars was founded in 2002 from the idea to add a highly demanded feature to the otherwise almost perfect Porsche Boxster: Comfort One-Touch roof operation while driving at slow speeds. The resulting product offered not only that, but also allowed quick and easy installation by just swapping out a relay box, thus leaving no traces and no permanent changes on the vehicle. The first SmartTOP roof controller was born.

The success of their first products in Germany and Europe prompted them in late 2004 to move operations to the USA, to be able to serve the American market as well as all other English speaking countries such as Australia, UK and South Africa from one central location. Their business has grown to a full-fledged international corporation with an office in Las Vegas and a full line of innovative products as well as distributors and installation partners all over the globe.

Being highly specialized in the development and distribution of aftermarket roof- and comfort controllers since 2002 allows them to offer an unsurpassed level of competence and product quality. Their main goal is optimization of each individual product to a maximum in compatibility, usability and intuitive operation. They put greatest effort into development and quality checks of all their products to achieve this goal and meet all expectations of their customers.

The extraordinary success of their products is also based on the great communication with their customers, which usually already starts for each new product during the development and prototyping phase.

ADVENTURE KINGS SOLAR PANEL RANGE – HOW MUCH POWER DO I NEED?

Sydney, NSW, Australia, 2018-Jan-15 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — When you need to recharge yourself and your 12V system, look no further than an Adventure Kings Solar charging system.

We have pioneered a range that starts from a simple 10W USB solar charger to a fully fledged 250W output array with MPPT Regulation for absolute maximum output to give you the options to power your setup no matter what you take camping with you.

All Adventure Kings Solar panels use Monocrystalline silicone cell construction which is the most efficient panel design available remaining lightweight and compact whilst still outputting effective power for use at home or in the bush.

We have fully standalone systems that include a solar regulator in both hard framed designs or the more flexible folding solar blankets which are excellent for space saving in the back of your vehicle or for emergency use.

We even have a fully customisable 110W Hard mounted system that includes fittings so you can easily and permanently mount it to your vehicle, camper trailer, campervan, caravan or boat with your choice of solar regulator.

We stock both the easy to operate low cost PWM style of regulator that has become the standard across the industry, or you can upgrade to one of our high efficiency, high output MPPT style regulators which gives you up to 30% more efficiency in cloudy or overcast conditions ensuring you get the most out of your solar setup no matter what the weather conditions.

Adventure Kings maintains its reputation for supplying functional camping setups whilst also still offering some of the most affordable solar setups available to the Australian market!

Whatever your 12V setup, Adventure Kings has a Solar charging system to efficiently top up your batteries and run accessories, with zero running costs and zero noise, whilst you kick back and relax and enjoy your favorite campsite in peace and quiet….When you are looking for a solar panel setup, you can’t look past an Adventure Kings Solar setup.

When you’re building a tourer or planning a campsite in your head, solar panels should always be a consideration – they are a source of free, limitless power after all – but how do you know what panel to choose!?

Luckily Adventure Kings has a wide range of panels, that won’t break the bank.

There are two main considerations to make when choosing a solar panel – how much power you use and how much space you have to pack your panel/s.

First, to calculate your requirements, consider how many 12 volt accessories you use at camp.

Generally all electrical products will have a wattage listed (check for a sticker near the power cord) you can use this wattage to calculate the real-time amps the product will use while it’s on. Some products may also list an Amp/Hour rating which simply gives an average on the total amount of amps used per hour the product is turned on. For example, the Adventure Kings 60L fridge/freezer is rated to use less than 1 amp/hour when the interior is set at 5°C and the outside temperature is 32°C.

So let’s work through an example:

You arrive at camp at 6pm on Friday, and it’s 32°C – your fridge is down to temperature at 5°C thanks to being plugged in while you drive and you’re ready for an icy cold beverage while you light the campfire, roll out your swag and set up the awning. Then you set up an Illuminator Strip Light and as the sun sets you turn it on and wind it down for ambient light.

As the temperature drops into the night your fridge will use less power, but every time you open it for a bevvy it has to work to cool back down again, so we’ll assume the fridge is using the rated 0.83Amp/Hours all night and into the morning. 6pm to 8am the fridge has used around 12 amp hours. The Illuminator strip light was on for 5 hours total and uses 0.4A at its low level for a total of 2A

So between 6pm and 8am you used 14 Amps total – whether you have a 98AH or 115AH deep cycle battery you’ve still got plenty of juice.

But throughout the next day your fridge will continue to use power. Between 8am Saturday and 8am Sunday it will use another 24 Amps. Add another 5 hours of strip light use for 2Amps and add in a phone charge using a cig socket USB adapter rated at 12W – that’s another Amp per hour your phone is on charge. In this case your phone is charged in 2 hours so that’s another 2Amps. Plus you use your Thumper to inflate some inner tubes to relax and float in the river – you use your Thumper for 15 minutes. To calculate the amps used per hour, you find the instantaneous power listed on the sticker (45Amps) and because you’ve used it for a quarter of an hour, calculate one quarter of 45. For this example we’ll call it 12Amp/Hours.

So Saturday to Sunday morning 8am you’ve used 40Amp/Hours – combine this with the Friday night total 14Amps and you’re looking at 54Amp/Hours – at this point your Deep cycle battery has used over 55% capacity if you’ve got the 98AH battery, and over 46% capacity if you’re using a 115AH battery.

You’re planning to leave camp at 4pm so the fridge still needs to be powered by your battery for a further eight hours. That’s another 8Amp/Hours, bringing the total weekend use up to 62Amp/Hours. 63% of your 98AH battery and 53% of your 115AH battery – you should definitely add a solar panel to keep those batteries charged!

Now you can look at the output of the different solar panels available.

4WD Supacentre offers a 110W fixed solar panel, a 120W Folding Solar blanket (with PWM regulator) a 160W Folding solar kit (with PWM regulator) and a 250W folding solar panel kit (with PWM regulator). The table below shows their maximum charging amperage (assuming the same PWM regulator for all panels) as well as the estimated total Amp/Hours after 6,8 and 10 hours of sun light.

So even six hours of sunlight on the Saturday and Sunday and your battery will have recharged at least 72A/H with a 110W Fixed Solar Panel (with added PWM regulator.) This would cover your power usage and keep your batteries charged. Of course, this is only a guide and your actual consumption may vary depending on many factors including, but not limited to, the outside temperature, fridge temperature, battery condition, wiring size and condition, solar panel angle and position etc etc.

The second consideration is the amount of space you have in your vehicle – for smaller vehicles, a 120W portable Solar blanket is perfect as it packs down to a compact size and still packs a punch.

For permanent mounting solar panels, the choice is obvious – a 110W fixed solar panel (or two!) These feature a thicker aluminium frame and don’t come with a regulator so you can connect your own, use a DC to DC charger and even connect multiple.

For bigger vehicle where space is less of a priority a 160 or 250 watt folding solar panel is ideal. You can set these at varying angles to catch the sun, and they mean you can park in the shade and have your panel in the sun doing the hard work! They also provide plenty of power for bigger camp setups or hotter conditions where your fridge is working more to keep your drinks cool.

Promwad partners with Asian chip vendors to offer cost-effective electronic designs in Europe

VILNIUS, Lithuania, 2017-Aug-04 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — Promwad Electronics Design House has partnered with leading technological fabless companies in China and Southeast Asia to offer its clients cost-effective electronics product development from the center of Europe and to manufacture any batch size of new devices with priority tech support.

Promwad was one of only a few design houses in the EMEA region authorized by Allwinner, one of the leading Chinese chip manufacturers. Promwad’s engineers design electronics based upon Allwinner components and provide tech support during the entire life cycle of the designed devices:

  • tablet PCs, multimedia and portable devices based on Allwinner SoC A series;
  • TV set-top boxes with OTT and IPTV based on Allwinner SoC H series;
  • dash cameras, video cameras and action cameras based on Allwinner SoC V series;
  • onboard multimedia systems for vehicles based on Allwinner SoC T series.

Allwinner was founded ten years ago; its headquarters are based in Zhuhai, Guangdong, China. In 2013 and 2014 this chip vendor was the world’s largest supplier of application processors for Android tablets.

Also Promwad became an official partner of Telink, Shanghai, and has significantly expanded its expertise in the fields of Bluetooth and BLE. This chip vendor specializes in Bluetooth and Zigbee for IoT and wearable electronics, remote controls, smart lighting and smart toys.

The engineers of Promwad have a lot of experience with the most popular chipsets of other vendors: TI CC265x, Silabs EFR32 Blue Gecko, Nordic nRF, Qualcomm/CSR10xx, and Dialog DA1458x. And now Telink TLSR826x BLE SoC has been added to this list; this system on chip has low power consumption, supports Zigbee, 6LoWPAN/Thread, and HomeKit.

Promwad maintains cooperation with the company Realtek from Taiwan and uses its chips to design network equipment from CPE – routers, gateways, WiFi hotspots to operators-side telecom equipment such as unmanaged and managed switches.

“Today the center of the semiconductor industry’s innovations and manufacture is shifting to Asia. Traditional chip vendors from the USA and Europe face growing competition from this region. Our customers demand functional and cost effective solutions to be designed at closer location such as Belarus or Lithuania and manufactured in Asia, that’s why establishing close links with Asian chip makers is a natural step for us,” says Ivan Kuten, the Business Developer of Promwad. “Namely by using such cooperation we cover our most growing capabilities in tablets, consumer gadgets, STB, CPE and multimedia devices. Now our customers in the EU and North America can create new hi-tech devices with controlled costs, tech support in English and manufacturing facilities in Europe or Asia.”

The manufacturer Mods4cars has completely redesigned the design of its retrofit SmartTV modules. The Video-in-motion unlocker for Mercedes-Benz are now being sent in a new housing. This enables the passenger to use and operate the TV and DVD system during the drive. The SmartTV Box is installed in the vehicle and the function is permanently enabled.

The module can be retrofitted to enable TV and DVD playback while driving. This allows the passenger to use the entertainment technology and play DVDs on long journeys.

“Our SmartTV module provides a well thought out and professional solution for TV unblocking,” says PR spokesman, Sven Tornow. The SmartTV module is firmly installed in the vehicle, which means that the functions are retained even after inspection by a workshop.

Mods4cars has now optimized the design of SmartTV modules. The housing, specially designed for Mods4cars, is 30% narrower and can be installed more easily in the vehicle. Two LEDs provide additional help with the installation. Since less plastic and no screws are used, it is also more environmentally friendly.

The SmartTV module has a standard USB port. This makes it possible to upload software updates, which Mods4cars provides free of charge. Thereby the Video-in-motion unlocker always remains up to date. The SmartTV control can be deactivated completely if necessary. A trace-free dismantling is also possible at any time, since no cables are cut during installation.

About Mods4cars:
Mods4cars was founded in 2002 from the idea to add a highly demanded feature to the otherwise almost perfect Porsche Boxster: Comfort One-Touch roof operation while driving at slow speeds. The resulting product offered not only that, but also allowed quick and easy installation by just swapping out a relay box, thus leaving no traces and no permanent changes on the vehicle. The first SmartTOP roof controller was born.

The success of their first products in Germany and Europe prompted them in late 2004 to move operations to the USA, to be able to serve the American market as well as all other English speaking countries such as Australia, UK and South Africa from one central location. Their business has grown to a full-fledged international corporation with an office in Las Vegas and a full line of innovative products as well as distributors and installation partners all over the globe.

Being highly specialized in the development and distribution of aftermarket roof- and comfort controllers since 2002 allows them to offer an unsurpassed level of competence and product quality. Their main goal is optimization of each individual product to a maximum in compatibility, usability and intuitive operation. They put greatest effort into development and quality checks of all their products to achieve this goal and meet all expectations of their customers.

SmartTOP Additional Soft Top Control by Mods4cars Now Available for Mini Convertible F57

As of now, the SmartTOP soft top control is available for the new Mini Convertible F57. Mods4cars retrofitting comfort module, enables the convertible top and sunroof to be operated from a distance via the original vehicle key. In addition, the convertible top and sunroof can be operated via the console button in the interior via One-Touch.

Las Vegas, NV (USA), May 23rd, 2017 — The SmartTOP roof module for the new Mini Cabriolet F57 is now available. The latest development of the company, Mods4cars, provides smart functions for a more comfortable operation of the convertible top. With the SmartTOP module installed, among other functions, it is possible to open the sunroof and convertible top via the interior button with One-Touch.

The individual functions of the SmartTOP roof module can be programmed according to the customers personal wishes. Thanks to the sophisticated SmartTOP Cabriolet module, starting or stopping the engine does not interrupt the convertibles top movement. Furthermore, the module can be completely deactivated as required.
