NMEA2000 is a system used for data exchange in a network with a bus structured backbone and a drop cable between the backbone and each device. This drop cable provides the device with power in most instances, and streams the data into the backbone making it available for all other NMEA2000 enabled devices to use.

Examples of marine electronic devices which may be included in a network are autopilot, wind instruments, Depth sounders, AIS (automatic identification system), chart plotters, navigation instruments, GPS,
engine instruments, tank level indicators and fuel flow indicators.

Retrofitting of engine information systems (RPM, oil pressure, water temperature, exhaust temperature, alternator voltage, etc.) is one of our specialities.  This will enable the display of all engine information on your NMEA2000 enabled display, chart plotter or computer.


There are also a large number of NMEA2000 sensors available. These sensors carry out their dedicated function and then place the data on the NMEA2000 bus. With these sensors on a network there is no longer need to have a dedicated display for each sensor, eg: depth sounder, wind instruments, fuel gauges and so on.

 

It is now possible to display this information on an NMEA2000 compatible multifunction display, an NMEA2000 compatible chart plotter or, with the correct software and interface, on a laptop or on board computer or a remote computer via the internet.

PDAR  Pro Reg D 12/24 volt.  Digital software control with slow start, dynamic Progressive battery charging,  can be used in parallel ( recommended ) or stand alone regulator, programable for different battery types, single unit fits 99% of alternators and all battery types, charges to 4 step progressive constant current charging curves, self diagnosing fault system, totally isolates the advanced regulator in fault condition, battery Temperature sensing, high battery temp trip, high battery voltage trip, high alternator voltage trip, de-sulphation ability on open lead acid batteries, in event of failure auto return to standard alternator regulator, can be used with or without the temperature sensor, monitors for excessive neg voltage drop and trips, protects batteries if temperature sensor open circuited, protects batteries if split charge relay/diode fails open, protects batteries if advanced reg fails closed, protects batteries if battery sense wire falls off.  10 LED display, 12  or 24 volt operation selectable.  Remote control option.  Alternator temperature sensor and boost disengage.  Thermostatically controlled cooling fan for maximum performance.
What To Expect From An Advanced Regulator:
1) Maintains maximum performance of an alternator’s power curve within a preset envelope as defined by battery manufacturers.
2) Batteries charging 4-20 times faster. ( depending on original system ).
3) Enables 25-35% extra useful power to be stored in batteries. A conventional alternator will only charge the battery to a max of about 75% and, at about 35% remaining capacity, the low voltage level renders it useless. This means that, of
100A of battery capacity, only about 35A are available to be used. An advanced regulator will fully charge the battery giving an extra 25% capacity. This increases the useable available power by about 70 - 80 %.
4) Battery plates kept free from sulphate damage results in longer life.
5) Due to the built in safety features, in the event of incorrect installation the unit will
switch itself off.
6) Reduces needless running hours on the main engine.
7) Compensates for voltage drops resulting from long cable runs, ammeters, diodes
and other general wiring associated problems.
8) Automatically converts a machine-sensed alternator to a permanent battery
