  2. How do I monitor the bilge with Maretron equipment? Before we discuss how to monitor the bilge with Maretron equipment, let's take a look at a typical bilge pump and alarm wiring diagram (see Figure 1). Notice that there are two ways to turn the bilge pump on. First, there is the float switch -- ... Read More
  3. 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
  4. I see that Maretron’s DSM150, DSM200, and DSM250 displays have a TLA100 configuration setting called "Tank Number:"; what is this? Maretron's DSM150, DSM200, and DSM250 displays have a TLA100 configuration setting called "Tank Number", which is used to set the tank number so subsequent transmissions from the TLA100 can identify which tank of a particular fluid is being repo...
