BM-1 Compact
BM-1 Compact

Compact battery monitor, just 124 x 62mm x 23mm!

Based on the highly successful BM-1 marine battery monitor, the BM-1 Compact is especially designed for applications where space is at a premium.

Caravans, mobile homes, RV’s, small boats and renewable power installations can all benefit from the BM-1 Compact. It is able to monitor the performance of any 12 Volt lead acid battery system with a capacity up to 600 AmpHours. The BM-1 Compact is supplied with a precision 100 Amp shunt and prefabricated cables to enable simple DIY installation.

The unit continually monitors the voltage, the current (charge or discharge) and calculates the state of charge together with the time remaining to charge or discharge the battery.

This information can lead to a more efficient use of the battery enhancing its life and reducing the risk of failure.

Operation is very simple. One screen displays the voltage, current (charge or discharge) and a bar graph showing the remaining capacity. A flashing alarm is also included to warn if the capacity is getting too low. A second screen shows the remaining time available at the current charge/discharge rate together with the remaining capacity in both analog and digital format.

The BM-1 Compact consumes a miserly 1.5mA!

BM-1 Compact is used in various vehicles by the Ministry of Defence.

EASY LIGHT LED Luminaire
EASY LIGHT LED Luminaire

The NASA Marine 12 Volt Easylight luminaire contains 48 high efficiency LEDs in a slender surface mounting package.

The cool white version (CW) is recommended where maximum illumination is required and the warm white (WW) where a more natural light is preferred. Light output for the (CW) is typically 300 Lumens and typically 250 Lumens for the (WW).

The unit is designed for surface mounting directly on a ceiling or wall using the screws provided. It is not waterproof and is intended for use in a dry cabin only.

Mounting
When fitting ensure that the ventilation slots are not obstructed and take care not to over tighten the screws. When in operation the space behind the unit may get warm so avoid mounting on surfaces where this could cause a problem.
The power leads can be taken through a convenient hole in the mounting panel or alternatively through one of the end vent slots. Connect to a 12 volt DC supply via a suitable switch and a 1 Amp fuse. The red wire goes to the positive supply connection and the black wire to negative. (An internal diode protects the unit against supply reversal.)

Supernova Combi Tri and Anchor L.E.D mastlight
Supernova Combi Tri and Anchor L.E.D mastlight

Supernova lights use high efficiency LEDs ensuring long life and low power consumption. A tough polycarbonate shell protects Supernova from the elements while a Gore-Tex membrane vent ensures equalization of pressure on the seals.

A simple two wire connection powers the Combi light. Connecting the red wire to positive and the black wire to negative will illuminate the tricolour light. Reversing the connections will illuminate the anchor light.
A rotary switch is supplied with the Combi light to facilitate the supply reversal.

In the central position both lights are off. Switching clockwise or anticlockwise selects the required lighting configuration.
If a toggle or rocker switch is preferred, to match existing switches, then a centreoff two pole changeover switch can be used.

Supernova navigation lights are intended for use on vessels up to 12 metres in length. They comply with CE generic EMC standards and are waterproof to IP65 and IP67. There is no specific EU standard for LED navigation lights. Supernova lights do not have any national approvals.

Semi Flexible SOLAR PANELS
Semi Flexible SOLAR PANELS

At just 3.5mm thin our weather proof panels are tough enough to withstand being stepped on when wearing soft soled shoes

A solar panel can provide a near maintenance free solution to keeping batteries charged when unattended. An occasional wipe with a damp cloth is all that is necessary to ensure the panel continues to trickle energy into the battery. Keeping the battery topped up will improve its reliability and can extend its useful working life. Whilst solar panels give their maximum output in direct sunlight, even an overcast day can provide a useful level of charge.

The Nasa marine 12 volt, semi flexible solar panels are robustly constructed on a fibre glass substrate and are protected by a scratch proof transparent Tedlar polymer. Only 3.5mm thick and lightweight, they have no metal outer components to make contact with the surface to which they are fitted.  The efficient and stable polycrystalline cells are encapsulated between two tough outer layers so the whole panel is weatherproof and carries a limited one year warranty.

The panels can be gently flexed (in one dimension.) to follow a smooth curve, such as a coach roof, by up to 2.5cm per 100cm of panel length. Four, grommet finished, holes are provided for screw fixing. Alternatively panels can be glued into position using mastic. The panels do not contain glass and, when correctly mounted, can be stepped upon when wearing soft soled shoes.
A sealed junction box is fitted with 2.5m of output cable, a connector and fuse protected crocodile clips. Electrical connection is simple though the use of a solar regulator is recommended to prevent overcharge if the system is to be left unattended for long periods or the solar panel to battery ratio exceeds the minimum of 10W to 100Ah.  An internal blocking diode prevents reverse current drain at night. The panel is protected with an inline 3 Amp fuse.

The 10W panel measures 370 x 280mm

The 20W panel measures 510 x 360mm

MOBi MOB Indicator
MOBi MOB Indicator

The Nasa MOBi is a state of the art, fail-safe transponder man overboard system. It consists of a base unit and up to eight active transponders for crew or valuable equipment. In operation the base station sequentially interrogates each transponder which then broadcasts its presence. In the event of a crew member falling overboard the drop in signal level is detected by the base unit which sounds a high intensity audible alarm. To aid identification of the missing crew member the base station continually displays the names of all the crew currently logged on, the signal levels of their transponder fob and their current status. Three AAA cells power each transponder for several weeks of continuous use. Should the base station be turned off the transponders will go to sleep with a life of several years. So if you are sailing with Tom, Dick and Harry don’t forget to take MOBi with you!

Gas Monitor
Gas Monitor

Liquified petroleum gas (LPG) is an invaluable source of energy on many sailing vessels. It should, however, be used with great care. In its gaseous form it is heavier than air and will always collect at the lowest level in a vessel. Any leak of gas, any spillage of liquid could sink to the bilge and, unable to escape, build up to explosive proportions.

The NASA Marine gas detector system warns if the level of LPG rises above 10% of the lowest explosive limit (LEL) giving adequate warning of the need to ventilate the area before a dangerous situation occurs. The system consists of a cabin mounted monitor and a remote sensor. The monitor gives visual and audible warning if gas levels at the sensor rise above 10% LEL and will warn of fault conditions such as damaged cables etc.
The splash proof sensor is supplied with a 5 metre cable and has a test button to check the system right through to the gas sense element. The sense element is user replaceable in the event of contamination.  Supplied with power cable.

EX-1 exhaust temperature monitor/alarm
EX-1 exhaust temperature monitor/alarm

The EX-1 continually displays the exhaust gas temperature in wet exhaust systems giving advanced warning of potential problems.

The EX-1 measures the exhaust gas temperature directly and displays it in degrees centigrade or Fahrenheit. Once the normal working temperature has been established a maximum temperature, a few degrees higher, can be programmed into the EX-1 which will then sound an alarm if that temperature is exceeded.Even a small rise in temperature can indicate a potential problem such as a minor blockage, leak or failing pump which can be corrected before a complete failure occurs.
