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.
AIS Engine 3 upgrade processor
The AIS Engine 1 and 2 can be upgraded to AIS Engine 3 specification by replacing the processor. This is a straightforward procedure where the old device is simply unplugged from its socket and replaced by the new device. AIS Engine 3 relays all AIS messages.
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!
HF3W SSB Receiver
TARGET HF3/P & HF3/W
The Target HF3 is a masterpiece of R. F. engineering covering the entire spectrum between 30Khz to 30Mhz. For those new to single side band reception the unit comes complete with everything needed to ‘get on the air’ including a comprehensive instruction manual which includes a list of useful marine frequencies.
Controls on the front of the receiver change reception mode, from a narrow filter for SSB reception to a wide filter which enables high quality audio signals to be heard from broadcast stations around the world. They also control ten memory channels to store your favourite frequencies.
The large, clear liquid crystal display shows the precise frequency tuned to and there is no need for constant ‘correcting’ with the tuning knob so often associated with SSB signals as the receiver
is fully synthesised.
The Target HF3/P has a fixed level audio output to connect to third party weatherfax software. The receiver is supplied complete with a basic long wire antenna, 12 volt power cable and instruction book.
The HF3/W is complete with CD software and interface cable for connection to a PC sound card. The software enables reception of weatherfax pictures, Radiotelex weather forecasts and Navtex. Simply install the software, plug in the supplied cable to the receiver output and PC sound card to receive weatherfax pictures and forecasts from around the world.
Requires PC Windows XP to 7.
The new BM-2 Compact is designed for larger battery capacities and higher load currents than its BM-1 Compact sister product.
BM-2 Compact is designed especially for applications where space is at a premium. It fully monitors performance of 12 volt lead acid battery systems with capacities of up to 999 Amp hours. The package is supplied complete with a precision 200 AMP shunt and a prefabricated cable assembly to enable simple DIY installation. The unit continuously monitors voltage, current (charge or discharge), number of amp/hours (charge or discharge), the batteries state of charge and the time to charge or discharge. This information leads to more efficient use of the battery, which can enhance battery life and reduce the risk of failure.
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.
Tactical Wind Mast Sensor
A high performance system that sends NMEA wind speed and direction data 10 times a second.
In demanding conditions, where high performance is essential, the Clipper Tactical wind mast sensor is the ideal choice. With ten updates every second it responds very quickly to the changes in wind speed and direction, which occur during tricky manoeuvres. The sensor is supplied complete with a mast mounting kit, 20 metres of light weight cable and all necessary electrical connectors to complete the installation. The output data is in the NMEA 0183 format and can be used to drive any compatible display that utilises the MWV sentence.
NOTE – This 3 wire NMEA mast unit is not compatible with earlier 5 wire analogue Clipper, Target or Cruiser wind systems. The earlier analogue mast sensor is available on the spare parts page.
- Mast transmitter supplied with 20 metres of cable
- NMEA 0183 4800 Baud data sentence MWV – update rate = 10 per second
- Wind speed 0 to 99.9 Kts
- Wind direction 0 to 360 degrees
- Supply voltage nominal 12 Volts
- Wind sensor supply current 9mA
