The BM-2 is designed to monitor performance of 12 volt lead acid battery systems with capacities of up to 999 Amp hours. It 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.
The Clipper Compass is a fully electronic compass with remote fluxgate sensor. The large clear display has 7 levels of illumination and gives True or magnetic heading. The sensor which is gimballed for plus/minus 30 degrees of pitch and roll, is mounted in a position where stray magnetic fields are at a minimum. An electronic auto calibration then cancels out small errors.
Steer to course function
When the steering function is selected a series of chevrons accumulate showing the magnitude and direction of the steering error. To stay on course simply turn the wheel in the direction of the chevrons until they are extinguished. The steering sensitivity can be preset by the user. An off course alarm provides a safety feature when not at the helm. If the heading deviates by more than a preset amount then the alarm will sound.
The new Clipper electromagnetic speed log measures the boat speed through the water with no moving parts.
Robust and accurate, the sensor generates an alternating magnetic field below the boat and measures the resulting electric field produced by the boat moving through the water. It is designed for installation into most types of GRP hulls.
With excellent linearity and a resolution of 0.1 Knot, over the range 0.2 to 40 Knots, the log sensor sends signals to a control box which then converts the sensor signal to boat speed, trip and total distance. This data is transmitted in NMEA 0183 format to a new Clipper EM Log display unit.
The Clipper Wind system shares the same 110mm square case as its sister instruments in the Clipper range. the display is exceptionally large and clear, with 60 segments for full 360 degree direction indication. Windspeed is shown in knots, M.P.H. or Metres/second. The pointer style is selectable, from the single segment shown above, to multi segments for greater clarity or a ‘windex’ style indicator. The new masthead unit has NMEA 0183 output sentence MWV and supplied with 20 metres of cable.
Clipper Wind system is supplied complete with Display unit, masthead unit with cable and mounting blocks.
