ICAST 2014 – New Power-Pole C-Monster 2.0 – Swift, Silent, Secure and SMARTby Grant Pentiricci July 22, 2014
At ICAST 2014 in Orlando, Power-Pole unveiled the 2015 updates to the C-Monster Control System, as well as some updates to their push-button controls. The updates tout a better-performing system, a new look, as well a full compatibility with Android and iOS phones. Curt Hill from Power-Pole demonstrated some of the new C-Monster control features in the JL Marine Systems booth, and we were impressed!
New features of the C-Monster 2.0 include a stronger RF signal for an extended range of the controllers. Two-way communication between the pump and the controller is now ten times faster. And a larger processor responds more quickly and boasts more memory to accommodate software upgrades.
Anglers can download the C-Monster App for the ultimate experience. Register your Power-Pole anchors and accessories directly through the C-Monster App. Then the real fun begins. In the app, you customize operations so you can take complete control of everything from deployment speed to independent control of multiple anchors. An RSSI evaluation lets you check the strength of all of your remotes while self-activating software updates keep your pump and controllers at top performing levels right through the app.
More control means more time on the water. The new remote controllers feature updated C-Monster 2.0 color accents while delivering three speed settings, double click auto up and auto down, independent control for multiple anchors, and they’re all waterproof. The new big-button standard foot switches are easy to see and easy to tap in a pivotal moment giving you double click auto up and auto down. And the advanced foot switch is sleek by design and offers three speed settings and multiple anchor control at the tap of a toe.
C-Monster 2.0, with your Power-Pole anchor, controllers and smart phone app, is one monstrous, fully integrated system, designed to give you a powerful edge for seamlessly smooth fishing.
We’re really looking forward to the 2015 release of this new control system!
