You know, that's what I was thinking
By the way, I agree that TMAX is overly-complex with the need for 3 channels, the lack of proportional control over the entire volume of each tank. Sounds like I need to do some expensive and costly re-working of the ballast tank control panel
Anyway, what about TAE? I heard that it also monitors the condition of the receiver battery, something I would die to have
. The UNI BTS switch (not the UNIpro) also has this too, but it's meant for single tanks.
I think that the SBTS switch (similar to TMAX, just used for a single tank) is also redundant, just like TMAX.
I wish that Engel would create a product that is just like a UNIpro, but is used for twin piston tanks.
Also, I think that a single tank is very bad for a camera sub. The fact that it upsets the levelness of the boat when diving/surfacing is unbearable. For a single tank type TA or XP, it's even worse. When the piston is at 85%-100%, it holds the boat at a unlevel angle. The only way to solve this is to move forward and let the pitch controller do the work. Then again, I can't always be moving when I'm trying to take a shot. The same thing applies to the UNIpro when used for a single tank.
This pretty much omits the Lafayette, and the 212A. I really need to consider this as the Lafayette and 212A are one of the most modern boats currently made by Engel, and are also the cheapest.
Yet I still need more evidence to start eliminating subs. I think I'm in for a biggie, since my local lake has huge waves, enough to make even a large canoe look like it's being played by god.
