Zoning your boat

Thinking about installing an AC on your yacht? If you have several cabins and a living area on board, but you do not manage the climate properly, it might be a very heavy burden on your power resources. What might help prevent this, is something called ‘zoning’. Although this can be a very expensive solution, there is a nice open source project that will allow you to install such a system for about 10% of the cost of a ‘professional’ system. If you have the skills of course…
“The existing zoning systems were built by companies that have been on the market for a long time, have established operating procedures, trained personnel, quite possibly they have grown beyond the ability to change. They do stuff a certain way “just because we always did it this way”. They completely ignore the progress in the embedded systems and still rely on low integration specialized chips to manufacture their controllers, and miss the opportunity to utilize the power that embedded microprosessor based systems offer.”
