This comprehensive temperature monitoring system monitors six temperatures, including two exhausts, using Maretron’s 8” TSM800C touchscreen, a Temperature Monitor (TMP100) and six Maretron temperature transducers. The Ethernet gateway allows you to view the temperatures on a smartphone or tablet so you can observe all data remotely. Finally, the Vessel Data Recorder (VDR100) keeps a complete record of all the temperatures, with the GPS200 providing reference positions and times.
In addition, the software in the TSM800C touchscreen can monitor all the temperatures and sound an alarm if any of them goes higher or lower than a preset limit.
Note that the first two channels of the TMP100 match to thermocouple transducers which makes them ideal for exhaust temperature monitoring, and the remaining four channels match to thermistor transducers.
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|
|TSM800C||Display||8” Touchscreen displays data in this list, monitors the data and if there is a problem will sound external buzzer.|
|ALM100||Alarm buzzer||Sounds a loud buzzer when any monitored data in this list goes outside programmed limit|
|TMP100||Temperature Monitor||Monitors temperature for 2 exhausts, main cabin, engine room, refrigeration and freezer|
|IPG100||N2K to ethernet||NMEA 2000 to ethernet gateway|
|E2500||Wifi router||Allows monitoring wirelessly or wired onboard, or remotely with internet connection|
|VDR100||Vessel Data Recorder||Performance analysis, vessel tracking, preventative maintenance, warranty incident, and accident investigation|
|GPS200||Cabin top GPS||Position, speed over ground, course over ground, time, date, magnetic variation and more|
The following components (click to enlarge) are examples of how monitored data can be displayed on the TSM800C, tablet or smartphone using N2KView or N2KView Mobile. The components are arranged on favourite screens at positions and sizes to suit the user's needs. See N2KView web page for exampes of full screenshots.
