  1. Why doesn’t Maretron offer a WSO100 with a built in GPS or compass? The WSO100 is generally placed at the highest point on the vessel so that it is not obstructed from the wind. Unfortunately, the highest point on a vessel is often the worst possible placement for a GPS or compass. Take for example a GPS mounted at t... Read More
  2. Why is the WSO100 shaped the way it is? The WSO100 was designed from the ground up to work in the marine environment. Unlike ultrasonic wind measurement devices originally designed for land based applications where the unit is always mounted parallel with the earth, marine applications req... Read More
  3. What is the supplied cable length of the TMP100 sensors; is it possible to extend the cable? Maretron thermistor probes come with 6' long wires. Yes, you can extend Maretron TMP100 sensor wires to complete temperature sensing applications throughout a vessel.In many applications technicians have extended thermistor wires up to 100 feet ...

  4. What temperature probes are compatible with Maretron’s Temperature Monitor (TMP100)? Maretron's Temperature Monitor (TMP100) has six channels for connecting up to six temperature probes. Two channels accommodate K-Type thermocouples and the remaining four channels accommodate thermistor type temperature probes. Maretron offers b... Read More
  5. I see that the FFM100 has a configuration called "Sensor:1-Phase"; what is this option used for? The FFM100 is compatible with single phase, single pulse sensors for flow measurements such as water and other non-lubricated fluids.This function allows the user to select specific fluid sensors that may provide a higher accuracy for a desired flow ...

  7. What 3-Phase applications is the ACM100 compatible with? The ACM100 is designed to measure 3-Phase "WYE" configurations. However, it can be used to measure many parameters of 3-phase Delta configurations in the following manner:Configure the ACM100 for a circuit type of "3-Phase Y (Ph. A, B, C)"Use the fol... Read More
  8. Is the FPM100 compatible with non-Maretron 4-20 mA pressure transducers? Maretron highly recommends using Maretron pressure transducers to achieve the specified accuracy; However, the FPM100 will support other linear 4-20mA transducers even though Maretron can't guarantee overall system accuracy.The 4-20mA sensor mus...

  9. Can the J2K100 connect to third party protocol converters that support J1708 or J1587? Maretron's J2K100 attaches directly into J1939 networks of compatible engines, transmissions, and gensets and converts the J1939 data to NMEA 2000. For engines that offer protocols such as J1708 or J1587, users may choose to translate the engine... Read More
  10. How do I choose the correct pressure range when specifying a pressure transducer for measuring fluid level in a deisel or water tank? Maretron offers pressure transducers with different pressure ranges. You choose a particular transducer based on the depth of the tank (assuming you install the pressure transducer at the deepest part of the tank, otherwise use the installation depth... Read More
