This comprehensive system provides vital battery information including voltage, current, state of charge, and battery temperature. If the battery voltage drops to an unacceptable level, the display (TSM800C - 8” touchscreen) can detect the problem and sound the buzzer in addition to instructing the text module (SMS100) to send a text message. The Internet Protocol Gateway (IPG100) and WiFi router (E2500) allows the information to be viewed wirelessly on the boat using smartphones and tablets and remotely from the shore with an Internet connection.

The following table shows the products included within this example system plus a list of the information or data available for display.
