Murphy Screens Video

Great video. For those familiar with the 2012 BIG Screen I think you'll find this new set up much better.

I wish i could swap the screen to my 2012 x2. The new Murphy screen can adjust the filltime of all Ballastpumps and thats a big plus point to the 2012īs. The 2012 screen bugging me!

Ya looks like they solved the BIG problems, now hopefully they get the 2012's running silky smooth.

Small edit...

Jibber, pls see this post, they improved the 2012's... Still not the 2013, but closer.

Same with 2010 (I suspect 2011 was adjustable as well). Huge oversight in 2012 IMO.

One option would be to have a dealer configure the fill timer to twice what you think you need. That way you just set it to 50% and if you change bags from 750# to 1100#, you just adjust the 2012 touch screen to 67.5%.

Small edit:

In other words your rear port ballast is 250# let's say that is 2500 revolutions, the tech term is 'pulse counts', of the pump... That is just a guess and just for this example...

When you go to the dealer because you want to add a 750# bag, have them configure it for 2500+7500 = 10,000 x 2 = 20,000 to read 100% full on the medallion screen....I believe the same applies to those 2012 without the touch screen as well. So now at 50% full your pump would have run 10k revolutions and your 750# plus the stock 250# will be full. Then when you change to an 1100# bag, you'll need 11,000+2500 = 13,500 revolutions (pulse counts) to fill... Or 67.5% of the 20,000 your dealer configured.

In this configuration, I would advise you to vent the bags with a check valve, that way you can determine what % was needed to over fill the total ballast.

Small edit: sorry again Nick, 2nd hijack in as many weeks.
