  5. I see that the FPM100 has an accessory for measuring pressures in the range of -1Bar to 1 Bar. Can I use this sensor to monitor my fuel filters? Yes, the FPM100 can transmit vacuum pressure data on the NMEA2000 bus by using Maretron sensor part number PT-V-0-1BAR-01. This sensor must be installed on the vacuum side of your fuel filter to help you determine fuel filter health displayed on a Ma...

  7. Why do some of the FPM100 pressure transducer accessories have a small plastic tube within the cable? Some pressure transducers measure gauge pressure (pressure above atmospheric). These transducers have a small plastic vent tube enclosed in the connecting cable. Special care must be taken not to block or kink the vent tube, and not to expose the ven... Read More
  8. How do I choose the right Maretron tank monitoring product for my particular application? Maretron offers three different types of tank monitoring technologies (i.e., adapter, ultrasonic, and pressure) for monitoring fluids aboard a vessel. Selecting the correct sensor can be confusing so this article helps you choose the right tank senso... Read More
