The 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.
I just wanted to share with you another great reason for having the EX-1 fitted. Over the last few weeks of using our boat I observed that the running temperature had gone up around 5 degrees or so. Now with using the boat in the winter one would expect the reverse, so it caused me to think more about it. Added to that, when I did use the engine at full revs on load (something I do regularly just as a check) the exhaust alarm went off (it doesn’t normally.) I then observed the seawater tell-tail was more pronounced (the tell-tail feed is off the line between the Jabsco pump and the inlet to the cooler. Hmmm: possible blockage? I removed the impellor and true enough, one of the vanes had come off. On stripping the cooling system (I was already working on the leaking silencer) I found one part of the impellor up against the tube stack, but more importantly, when I removed the hose feeding the tube stack, via a small elbow, I found a larger part of the impellor jammed inside, reducing the flow by as much as 50% and causing s sediment build up behind it, reducing it further. All cleaned out now, but the reason for telling you is that the EX-1 gave me warning before any real damage could have been caused. It is a brilliant piece of kit.
RG 58 10 m Cable pack
Coaxial cables are vital to the performance of your antenna and radio system. Selecting the best coaxial cable has become more and more complicated as more suppliers are offering a broader range of products. The cable selected will affect the system’s cost, coverage and reliability. That’s why for our antennas we only use one type of coaxial cable, the TOP PERFORMANCE RG 58 CU MIL, designed to guarantee the best signal transmission.
