Oceanics Systems DC Monitor
The Oceanic Systems' DC Monitor (3410) accurately measures the DC voltage, the DC current and reports them over the NMEA2000® network. It also calculates the current state of charge and the battery life remaining at the current rate of discharge. The unit can be used for batteries, alternators, solar panels and wind generators. It can also measure the voltage and current being drawn by DC loads such as Inverters, refrigerators etc. The unit keeps a track of loads and battery condition even when the NMEA2000® network is powered off so the total current draw or battery condition is always maintained and is known when the network is next powered on. Battery monitoring is done using the latest circuitry and software that includes the charge efficiency factor, the battery temperature and Peukerts exponent to calculate the remaining capacity accurately and efficiently.
The current is monitored by either, a latest state of the art DC Current Transformer placed around the conductor with no need to break the connection or by two stages of shunts for currents up to either 500 Amps or 1200 Amps for larger vessels.
The connections to the sensors are made via boat builder preferred WAGO Cage Clamp terminals which allow either solid or multistranded wires from 0.08 to 2.5mm² to be connected quickly and securely. Much more secure than screw terminals which can vibrate loose over time.
This unit is designed to operate in a protected marine environment such as an engine room. The 3410 can be either panel mounted or din rail mounted using it's optional DIN rail mounting clips. The unit reports DC Voltage, DC Current and state of charge. It uses Peukart's Constant and the Charge Efficiency Factor for the battery to ensure the most accurate state of charge reporting.
