Designed for stainless steel fermenting vessels, the Tilt repeater extends range of your Tilt hydrometer so it can reach more convenient locations where you might have a tablet, phone, or Tilt Pi plugged in for continuous automatic logging. Repeater can repeat signal from one Tilt at a time as long as signal is strong enough. It is waterproof and has a 6 month battery life with included USB-micro rechargeable li-ion battery. Repeater updates at least once every 2 minutes.
Over six months of testing, the Tilt repeater is available for purchase. We have been testing with stainless steel fermentors and kegs with great success. The repeater can be placed inside a refrigerator along with a keg or fermenter to push the signal out to phones, tablets, and Raspberry Pi logging solutions. Instructions for use are as follows:
- Unscrew caps on each end the plastic enclosure. Gently push out electronics assembly.
- Using the color key located on the battery holder, press the button repeatedly to select the desired Tilt hydrometer color to repeat. For example press the button once to repeat a red Tilt or twice to repeat a green Tilt. To turn the repeater off, press the button repeatedly until the LED blinks red.
- Confirm desired color selected by opening the Tilt app and verifying selected color shows an initial specific gravity of 0.000 and temperature of 0°F (-17.8°C). Once the repeater connects (indicated by periodic green LED flash) it will show the actual repeated values.
- Return assembly to tube and screw caps back on. Place repeater as close as possible to Tilt hydrometer (but still outside fermentor) and verify green LED flashes indicating a connection.
NOTE: This product requires that you have a Tilt Hydrometer to use this.
