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?Estimated Reading Time: < 1 Minute
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 Maretron DSM150/250 or N2KView.
The following image shows how fuel passes through the filter and how you can monitor filter Vacuum using the Maretron FPM100 in conjunction with the vacuum sensor PT-V-0-1BAR-01.
