The Newport 400c is the most energy-efficient, automated, and easy-to-use watermaker available, and comes with the Spectra Connect controller as standard. The Spectra Connect allows you to operate and monitor your watermaker from a remote device, and has added features like the Fill Tank mode, or a customizable Auto Run mode, One-Touch Sensor Calibration, and suggested maintenance intervals displayed on the dashboard, taking the guesswork out of operation and upkeep!
