2       Introduction

Congratulations on your purchase of the Maretron MPower CLMD12 12 Channel DC Load Controller Module. Carling has designed and built your CLMD12 to the highest standards for years of dependable and accurate service.

 

The Maretron CLMD12 contains 12 breaker outputs implemented by direct current (DC) Electronic Circuit Breakers (ECB’s), each capable of switching up to 5, 10, or 12 Amps, with a total current capacity of 75 Amps. In addition to fast switching, low-loss solid state ON/OFF switches, it provides accurate current measurement for each load along with short circuit protection.

 

The CLMD12 additionally contains 7 (Hardwired) inputs implemented by DC digital inputs, programmable to sense whether the input is connected to a high level (DC+), connected to a low level (DC -), or left unconnected.

 

The CLMD12 connects directly to an NMEA 2000® network, so you can turn on and off the breaker outputs from a Maretron DSM-Series display or any device running Maretron N2KView® software, such as TSM-Series multifunction displays or MBB-Series black boxes. Additionally, since the CLMD12 supports standard NMEA 2000®­ messages for control, it can be controlled by any NMEA 2000® device supporting those messages. The CLMD12 easily handles resistive DC loads like lights or inductive DC loads like pumps and motors. The CLMD12 can also be used to switch AC circuits using external relays. An added benefit of the CLMD12 is that it reports the current through each of the 12 breakers. This allows you to determine if loads are drawing too little electrical current such as burnt-out bulbs, or if the loads are starting to draw too much electrical current.

 

The CLMD12 is designed to operate within the harsh demands of the marine environment.  However, no piece of marine electronic equipment can function properly unless installed, configured, and maintained in the correct manner. For best results, please read this user’s manual from start to finish to understand instructions for installation, configuration, and usage of the CLMD12.

2.4    Quick Install

Installing the Maretron CLMD12 involves the following steps. Please refer to the individual sections for additional details.

 

1.     Unpack the box (Section 3.1)

2.     Choose a mounting location (Section 3.2)

3.     Mount the CLMD12 (Section 3.3)

4.     Connect the CLMD12 (Section 3.4)

5.     Configure the CLMD12 (Section 3.5)

2.5    Theory of Operation

The CLMD12 provides the ability to turn on or off DC power to a load circuit using 12 independent solid-state Electronic Circuit Breakers (ECB’s). Each breaker contains protection against overcurrent, overtemperature, and short circuit.

 

Each breaker in the CLMD12 may be controlled using any of the following methods:

 

1)    Maretron N2KView® software running on a personal computer, or

2)    Maretron N2KView® software running on a Maretron MBB-Series Black Box for Vessel Monitoring and Control, or

3)    Maretron N2KView® software running on a Maretron TSM-Series Vessel Monitoring and Control Touchscreen Computer, or

4)    Maretron N2KView® Mobile app running on an Android or iOS tablet or phone, or

5)    a Maretron DSM-Series NMEA 2000® Multi-function Color Graphic Display, or

6)    any NMEA 2000®-connected switch, such as an Maretron MPower CKM-Series network-connected keypad or VMM-Series network-connected switches, or

7)    any NMEA 2000® product that can transmit standard NMEA 2000® control messages such as a compatible third party MFD (Multi-function Display)

(please refer to Appendix A for details on the required messaging).

 

The breakers can be monitored and/or controlled through use of the Breaker/Switch component in the Electrical Distribution category of the Maretron display products listed above. In addition, the current through each breaker may be monitored through the Breaker/Switch Current component in the Electrical Distribution category of Maretron display products.

 

Since the output channels are implemented by Electronic Circuit Breakers, if the NMEA 2000 power is removed, all breakers will revert to the open (OFF) state. The state that the breaker will be in when the NMEA 2000 power is restored can be configured to be ON, OFF, or in the last state the breaker was in before power was removed.

 

2.5.1   Electronic Circuit Breakers

The 12 breaker outputs are switched with MOSFETs connected in a back-to-back arrangement so that back-feeding is not possible when the breaker is turned off.

All breaker outputs employ the following:

·       Latched shutdown overcurrent detection with reset

·       Overcurrent surge allowance that prevents overcurrent latch tripping when starting high surge loads such as incandescent lamps

 

The table below shows the connection and maximum current capacity for each Breaker.

Figure 1 below shows the schematic of each breaker in the CLMD12.

 

Figure 1 – Breaker Output Schematic

 

2.5.1.1    Breaker Overcurrent protection

The overcurrent protection has two purposes: to protect the CLMD12 and to protect connected breaker loads. The CLMD12 is protected by fast acting overcurrent latches in hardware that allow for overcurrent conditions that will not damage the breaker output control circuit. Load protection is implemented in software and trip levels and delays are set in configuration (please refer to Section 3.5.1.6 for details).

 

When an overcurrent condition is detected, the CLMD12 will latch the breaker off for the remainder of the continuously powered interval unless reset by being commanded OFF and then ON again through the NMEA 2000 interface.

2.5.1.2    Breaker output control circuit protection current limit

The non-configurable breaker output control circuit protection allows surge currents to occur without tripping the overcurrent shutdown function. These surges are allowed any time the breaker is ON according to a single time constant characteristic. Over-current levels are allowed for a time that is inversely proportional to the magnitude of overcurrent according to a well-defined curve that is tailored to prevent damage to the CLMD12. This protection cannot be disabled and will trip instantaneously when a peak limit is exceeded. Continuous load currents above the hard current limit will also trip the overcurrent latch.

2.6    Breaker Load protection current limit

The configurable breaker load protection current limit provides three parameters to customize the overcurrent protection of the load.

·       Current rating: Constant load current above this level will trip the breaker OFF.

·       Inrush Delay: An adjustable delay (0 to 1500 milliseconds) that starts at the time of breaker turn ON. The configurable current limit trip is blocked during this period.

·       Trip Delay: An adjustable delay (0 to 750 milliseconds) that starts when currents exceeding the current rating setting are detected after the Inrush Delay has expired. The configurable current limit trip is blocked during this period.

2.7    Pulse Width Modulation (PWM)

Breakers can be operated in pulse width modulation (PWM) mode, also referred to as dimming, to control the brightness of incandescent or LED lighting. The breaker may be configured with a duty cycle of 5% to 100% with a resolution of 1%.

 

Warning-Symbol.png

WARNING

·       The breaker being used as a dimming module will provide an output at full battery voltage to the LED control module. Verify that the LED control module can accept this type of input prior to use. When a breaker is configured to provide a PWM output (dimming), the PWM frequency is 200Hz.Use of a breaker in a PWM mode (duty cycle less than 100%) for control of motors or other inductive loads is prohibited.

 

2.8    Paralleling Breakers

Breakers can be paralleled for higher current capacity:

·       Only parallel two breakers with the same current rating.

·       Wiring recommendation: Run two breakers wired together with matched impedance.

·       Please note that the maximum current rating when two breakers are paralleled is typically 180% of the single channel rating. (Example: 18A maximum for two 10A breakers in parallel). This is because the impedance of the two paralleled breakers will not be identical due to component variation.

·       See tables below for recommended parallel breakers:

 

Paralleled Breakers

Typical Maximum Current

Breaker #7 (12A) & Breaker #4 (12A)

22A

Breaker #9 (5A) & Breaker #6 (5A)

9A

Breaker #6 (5A) & Breaker #12 (5A)

9A

Breaker #3 (5A) & Breaker #12 (5A)

9A

Breaker #5 (10A) & Breaker #8 (10A)

18A

Breaker #2 (10A) & Breaker #8 (10A)

18A

Breaker #2 (10A) & Breaker #10 (10A)

18A

Breaker #1 (10A) & Breaker #10 (10A)

18A

 

You can parallel two breakers by assigning the same switch group number to the two breakers.

 

When you parallel breakers, configure the CLMD12 to assign 50% of the maximum current to the Current Rating parameter for each of the two paralleled breakers. For example, if you parallel Breaker #7 and Breaker #4 and wish to use them to supply power to a load rated at 22A, configure the Current Rating for each of the two breakers to 12A. This will result in a typical maximum current rating of 22A for the paralleled breakers.

 

2.9    Hardwired Inputs

The hardwired inputs respond to three voltage level states, “Active High”, “Open” and “Active Low”. That is, when the input is at V-Battery (Connected to DC (+) it will be read as a “High”. When the input is at 0 V or GND (Connected to DC (-) it will be read as “Low”. The unused inputs can be left disconnected which results in an “open” state.

 

The following diagram shows the impedance model of the Hardwired Inputs.

 

Figure 2 – Hardwired Input Impedance Model

Each hardwired input can be configured to output an ON indication in the NMEA 2000 127501 Binary Status Report PGN when the input voltage level is sensed as Low, High, or Both (Low and High). If the input voltage level is not one of the configured levels, then the input channel will output an OFF indication in the NMEA 2000 127501 Binary Status Report PGN.

Warning-Symbol.png

WARNING

The System Ground signal (Connector J2, Pin 6) must be connected to the supply voltage ground reference for proper system operation, regardless of whether any of the Discrete Input signals are connected. A 14awg. wire is recommended for this connection to the supply source up to 100ft.

 

3.4.4   Main DC (+) Connection

Connect a source of DC (+) with a ring terminal to the 1/4”-20 stud on the top of the device, being careful not to torque the connection beyond the specified value of 20 in-lbs. (2.26 N·m). Ensure that the cable providing the DC (+) signal is protected by a fuse or circuit breaker with a value appropriate to protecting the wire or the 75A maximum specification of the CLMD12, whichever is less.

 

Note: Multiple CLMD12 units can be connected to the same Main DC (+) feeder source so long as the unit’s main fuse / breaker overcurrent protection does not exceed 75A (The maximum specification of the CLMD12) and the feeder wire to each unit is sized identically.

     

3.4.5   Checking Connections

Once all of the connections to the CLMD12 have been completed, check to see that information is being properly transmitted by observing an appropriate NMEA 2000® display.  If you don’t see channel on/off status, refer to Section 6, “Troubleshooting”.


 

3.5    Configuring the CLMD12

The CLMD12 will transmit data over the NMEA 2000® network as it is shipped from the factory; however, it may require configuration, depending on the type of switches monitored and the number of similar products on the NMEA 2000® network. There are several configurable items within the CLMD12, which are detailed in the remainder of this section.

3.5.1.6.3  Default State

This allows you to configure the state of the breaker when the CLMD12 is powered on. You can set this to one of the following values:

·       OFF

·       ON

·       LAST KNOWN STATE

3.5.1.6.4  Default Lock State

This parameter allows you to configure whether the breaker is locked when the CLMD12 is powered on. You can set this to one of the following values:

·       LOCKED

·       UNLOCKED

3.5.1.6.5  Sound Alarm When Tripped

This parameter allows you to configure whether an alarm is sounded on OctoPlex and Maretron branded Touch Screen displays whenever the breaker is tripped.

3.5.1.6.6  Trip Delay

This parameter allows you to configure the trip delay for the breaker (the current through the breaker must exceed the current rating of the breaker for this amount of time for the breaker to trip). This can be set in the range of 0 ms to 750 ms.

3.5.1.6.7  Inrush Delay

This parameter allows you to configure the inrush delay for the breaker. When the breaker is switched from OFF to ON, the current through the breaker can exceed the current rating of the breaker for this amount of time without the breaker tripping. This allows for a brief period of current inrush, preventing the circuit from inadvertently tripping when energized. This can be set in the range of 0 ms to 1500 ms.

3.5.1.6.8  Default Dim Value

This parameter allows you to configure the percent dimming value for the breaker when the CLMD12 is powered on. This value will be applied only if the Dimming Allowed box is checked. This can be set in the range of 5% to 100% with a resolution of1%.

3.5.1.6.9  Current Dim Value

This read-only field shows the percent dimming value for the breaker.

3.5.1.6.10           Dimming Allowed

This parameter allows you to configure whether the channel is dimmable. Check this box to allow dimming commands to change the dimming level of the breaker and clear this box to force the breaker to operate at 100% dimming level.

3.5.1.6.11           Combine With

To parallel two breakers, select the number of the breaker you wish to combine this breaker with. The dropdown box will present a list of other breakers with the same current capability which may be paralleled with this breaker, If two breakers are paralleled, the breaker with the higher number mirrors the state of the breaker with the lower number. For example, if you parallel Breaker 1 and Breaker 2, any change in state of Breaker 1 will be mirrored by Breaker 2.

3.5.1.6.12           Factory Current Rating

This parameter allows you to configure the maximum value to which the Current Rating can configured. This parameter should be configured to the current rating for the wire connected to this breaker. The value you can program into this field is limited by the current capacity of the channel being programmed.

3.5.1.6.13           Current Rating

This parameter allows you to configure the desired trip level for this breaker. Exceeding this current will initiate a trip. The value you program into this field will be limited by the value in the Factory Current Rating field.

3.5.1.6.14           Current

This read-only field shows the real-time current passing through the breaker.

3.5.1.6.15           Voltage

This read-only field shows the real-time voltage at the load terminal of the breaker.

3.5.1.6.16           Flash Map

This parameter allows you to configure a breaker to use a flash map. A value of 0 means that the breaker is not assigned to any flash map, and a value of 1 through 15 assigns the breaker to the flash map corresponding to that number.

3.5.1.6.17           User Config Allowed

This parameter allows you to configure whether configuration changes can be made to the breaker. If this is checked, other configuration parameters for the breaker can be changed. If this is cleared, other configuration parameters for the breaker cannot be changed.

3.5.1.6.18           Status

This group of indicators show real-time status of the breaker.

3.5.1.6.18.1        Short Load

When lit, this read-only field indicates that the breaker has tripped due to a detected short circuit.

3.5.1.6.18.2        Breaker Locked

When lit, this read-only field indicates that the breaker has been locked and will not respond to switch commands on the network. The purpose of the lock feature is to avoid inadvertent or accidental breaker state changes. The breaker must be unlocked before the breaker state can be remotely changed again.

3.5.1.6.18.3        Breaker Tripped

When lit, this read-only field indicates that the breaker has tripped due to an overcurrent condition. Switch the breaker OFF to acknowledge the ‘breaker tripped’ indication. You can then switch the breaker back to the ON position.

3.5.1.6.18.4        Breaker ON

When lit, this read-only field indicates that the breaker is in the ON state.

3.5.1.6.18.5        Open Load

When lit, this read-only field indicates an Open Load (no load) condition which indicates that the breaker is turned ON but there is little or no current being drawn. Possible conditions:

·       External switch controlling load is in the OFF position

·       If the connected load is a light, the bulb could be defective

·       The load is mis-wired

·       The load is very small (less than 1.0 Amp)

3.5.1.6.18.6        Communications Error

When lit, this read-only field indicates that the breaker has lost communication with the main processor.

3.5.1.6.18.7        Breaker Communicating

When lit, this read-only field indicates that the breaker is communicating with the network.

3.5.2   Flash Map

The Flash Function allows control of a breaker to be periodic. Common uses of this function include turning off a head fan or light after a set period of time, etc. Five parameters dictate the behavior of the circuit and are detailed below. A maximum of 15 flash table entries may be defined.

 

Figure 6 – CLMD12 Flash Map Tab


 

3.5.2.1    Cycles

This parameter allows you to configure the number of cycles that this flash map will execute after a breaker configured to use this flash map has been switched to the ON state. A value of 0 will repeat the cycle indefinitely, and values in the range of 1 cycle to 255 cycles will execute that number of cycles.

3.5.2.2    On Time

This parameter allows you to configure the time that a breaker will be ON during a cycle. This can be set to a value in the range of 0 seconds to 6553.5 seconds in increments of 0.1 seconds.

3.5.2.3    Off Time

This parameter allows you to configure the time that a breaker will be OFF during a cycle. This can be set to a value in the range of 0 seconds to 6553.5 seconds in increments of 0.1 seconds. A value of 0 will disable this flash map.

3.5.2.4    Start Flash Cycle in Off State

This parameter allows you to configure the Flash Map to start with ‘Off Time’ as the first behavior of the Flash Map. The Flash Map will then execute the configured number of Cycles.

3.5.2.5    Finish Flash Cycle in On State

This parameter allows you to configure the Flash Map to stop the flash cycle with the breaker to finish in the On state once the configured number of cycles are executed.

 

3.5.3   Discrete I/O

When a device transmitting the 127501 Binary Status Report message is part of the installation, it can be configured to control the behavior of the breakers. This includes the the seven hardwired  inputs present on the CLMD12. Up to thirty-six (36) total Discrete I/O’s can be programmed into one CLMD12. One Discrete I/O can control multiple breakers, or because the Discrete I/O state is maintained independent of any breaker state a breaker can be controlled from multiple Discrete I/O input signals. Example: two separately wired wall switches are controlling the same light (breaker).

 

Figure 7 – CLMD12 Discrete I/O Tab

3.5.3.1    Data Instance

4       Operation

4.1    Manual Breaker Control

Breakers may be manually turned on and off via messages received over the NMEA 2000 network.

4.2    Automatic Breaker Control by Flash Function

The Flash Function allows control of a breaker to be periodic. Common uses of this function include controlling a foghorn, automatically turning off a head fan or light after a set period of time, etc. Three parameters dictate the behavior of the circuit and are set via the Maretron N2KAnalyzer utility. A maximum of 15 flash table entries may be defined.

·       Flash ON time:   Duration of time the load is ON

·       Flash OFF time: Duration of time the load is OFF

·       Number of Cycles: Number of times to repeat the cycle – 0 to 255 (0 will cause the cycle to be repeated indefinitely)

4.3    Automatic Breaker Control by Discrete I/O Function

When a device which transmits a 127501 Binary Status Report message is present on the NMEA 2000 network or internal hardwired inputs are utilized, the indicator states transmitted in these messages can be configured to control the behavior of the breakers. Up to thirty-six (36) total  Discrete I/O inputs per CLMD12 can be programmed. One Discrete I/O can control multiple breakers, or because the Discrete I/O state is maintained independent of any breaker state, a breaker can be controlled from multiple Discrete I/O input signals. Example: two separately wired wall switches are controlling the same light (breaker).

4.4    Manual Bypass

The Maretron Mechanical Bypass Module (CBMD12) P/N A3675 can be installed in conjunction with the CLMD12.

 

The bypass module provides a manual method (On/Off switch) to control loads by providing power to each load in case of CLMD12 malfunction and/or NMEA 2000 network failure. The power outputs provided by the bypass module are over current protected via an individual fuse for each output. Please ensure that the current rating of the fuse for each load is appropriate to protect the load and the wiring for that load.

 

Please note that the bypass module does not support paralleled outputs, since each circuit is controlled by a separate switch. Additionally, the bypass module does not support dimming of circuits.

 

Warning-Symbol.png

WARNING

 

The CBMD12 Mechanical Bypass Module is not ignition protected. Ensure that the area is free of fumes and gasses when the switches are cycled and when fuses are removed and/or installed.

 

To change control from the CLMD12 load module to the CBMD12 bypass module, please perform the following steps:

 

1)    Ensure that the area is free of fumes and gasses.

2)    Ensure that all switches on the CBMD12 bypass module are in the OFF position.

3)    Connect power to the ¼”-20 power stud on the CBMD12 bypass module.

4)    Unplug the J1 connector from the CLMD12 load module.

5)    Plug the J1 connector into the CBMD12 bypass module.

6)    For the circuits you wish to energize, set the corresponding switches on the CBMD12 bypass module to the ON position.

 

Please refer to the diagram of how the bypass module is installed below in Figure 12.

Warning-Symbol.png

WARNING

 

The CLMD12 DC 12 Channel Load Module is operated under remote control. Before servicing any load device connected to the CLMD12, you must first disconnect the wire between the CLMD12 load terminal and the load device. Failure to do so can result in serious bodily harm.

 


 

Regular maintenance is important to ensure continued proper operation of the Maretron CLMD12.  Perform the following tasks periodically:

 

 

6       Troubleshooting

If you notice unexpected operation of the Maretron CLMD12, follow the troubleshooting procedures in this section to remedy simple problems. If these steps do not solve your problem, please contact Maretron Technical Support (refer to Section 8 for contact information).

 

Symptom

Troubleshooting Procedure

No breaker/switch data visible on NMEA 2000® network.

  • Ensure that the CLMD12 is properly connected to the NMEA 2000® network.
  • Ensure that the CLMD12 instance of the breaker/switch component matches the instance programmed into the CLMD12, as described in Section 3.5.5.1.

A breaker/switch always reads “Error”

The CLMD12 may have shut down the affected channel due to an overtemperature or overcurrent condition detected on the CLMD12 breaker itself.

  • Ensure that the current drawn by the load is less than the current rating for the connected channel.
  • Ensure that no short circuits or other wiring problems exist on the load circuit, and reset the channel by turning it OFF, then ON.
  • If the breaker or switch control returns to the error state, closely examine the load wiring for problems and ensure that the load draws the appropriate amount of current.

A breaker/switch is “ON”, but the load is not powered.

  • Ensure that the load is connected to the load terminal of the same CLMD12 channel that the breaker/switch component is controlling.
  • Ensure that the load’s terminal which is not connected to the CLMD12 is connected to vessel ground.
  • Ensure that the connection between the breaker and the channel’s power terminal is good.
  • Ensure that the breaker supplying power to the channel is not tripped.

You can see, but not control, the state of a breaker/switch

  • If you are controlling the load via a DSM-Series display, ensure that it is running at least firmware revision 1.4.10.
  • If you are controlling the load via N2KView software, ensure that you have a switch control license for the software.

Appendix A – NMEA 2000® Interfacing

 

This appendix is intended to relate specific characteristics of the CLMD12 to how they are communicated via NMEA 2000® messages in order to help ascertain whether the messaging implemented by the CLMD12 is compatible with other NMEA 2000® products. It is not a complete description of the messages. If you require detailed information on the messages, please obtain a copy of the NMEA 2000® standard documents from the National Marine Electronics Association (www.nmea.org).
