Maretron’s Alternating Current Monitor (ACM100) provides information about the AC electrical system including voltage, current, frequency, and power. This intermediate system, which ships with one current transformer, is used to monitor a single phase shore power connection (or any other AC source – generator, invertor, etc.), and if for any reason the boat becomes disconnected from the shore power, then a text message is sent to notify someone of the condition.
The following table shows the products included within this example system plus a list of the information or data available for display.
|Product||Description||Available Data List|
|DSM250||Display||Displays data in this list, monitors the data and sounds an internal buzzer if there is a problem|
|ACM100||Shore power monitor||Monitors voltage, current, frequency and power|
|SMS100||Texting module||Sends text messages to one or more phone numbers when any monitored data in this list goes outside programmed limits|
The following screenshots (click to enlarge) are examples of Text Messages you can receive when monitoring these values.
