for LOSS of SITE POWER
Have you the frustration of a flashing "low battery alarm" only to find the 240V input had dropped out?
Its happened to me on both the boat and the caravan.
The solution is quite a simple one.
Monitor the 240V power inlet for loss of power.
Our 240V current sensor measures the AC current flowing in and displays the power in watts on the Pico.
Simply set the alarm at the lowest acceptable power level in watts.
If this is a large power boat with multiple power inlets, you can have each inlet monitored.
Each sensor is set for the maximum power input.
- 15A for RV applications and
- 30A+ for Marine applications.
Order the AC current sensor with the Simarine system and select the current flow.
