BENEFITS OF THE BATTERY MONITORING SYSTEM
The Intelligent Battery Monitoring System informs you about the current energy status, allowing you to plan your energy supply making it the key element of the vessel’s energy management. In order to carefully preserve the energy of the boat battery, it is necessary to know its State of Charge, the ageing status (State Of Health) and any changes to the battery, as weak batteries are the main cause of trouble in the boat. By using the Intelligent Battery Monitoring System, the energy management system can react quickly in case of critical battery state which influences both the consumer behavior and the alternator. It delivers real time measurements during the charging/discharging processes, preventing phenomena like overcharging or over temperature which can lead to a shortened life for your batteries.
Intelligent Battery Sensor (IBS)
Simple electrical and mechanical integration, the sensor accurately measures the battery voltage, current and temperature parameters and internally calculates the State Of Charge, State Of Health and Time Remaining accordingly.
Link Up gateway
Interfaces the I BS sensor with the NMEA 2000® network to make all the information available for any display. Wireless configurable, the Link Up gateway is also the access point for the configuration of the battery parameters.
Configuring LinkUp gateways
Simple using a mobile device and the companion LinkUp Configurator App for Android or iOS. Each device has a built-in passive NFC antenna, so the parameters of the sensor are wirelessly configured to type, instance and warning threshold on the mobile device which is then “tapped” against the LinkUp device for instant data download.
DESIGN AND FUNCTION
The Link Up gateway has a simple but yet effective design. The housing filled with bi-component resin allows the unit to be installed in Engine Rooms, making it compliant to the ISO 8846:1990 as requested by the directive 2013-53(EC). The standard NMEA 2000® M12 plug allows for a plug-and-play installation to the network backbone.
