SAVE money and time WITH THIS cutting-edge consultant TO the most recent, such a lot complicated DIAGNOSTIC gear and methods
“Ed Sherman is considered one of America’s nice academics and communicators of marine technology.”--Tim Murphy, government Editor, Cruising international
Whether you're a marine electronics expert or a boatowner, complex Marine Electrics and Electronics Troubleshooting is helping you recognize the hot, extra strong tools of troubleshooting marine electric and digital platforms. a latest boat’s subtle installations and networked electronics can stretch the conventional diagnostic tools in response to hassle lighting and multimeters previous their valuable limits. This e-book will provide help to:
- Use microprocessor-based diagnostic instruments and methods from the automobile and communications sectors, tailored for boats for the 1st time
- Diagnose the main tough AC and DC difficulties
- Protect communications and navigation electronics from interference and lightning
- Seek out and cast off stray-current resources and galvanic corrosion

At that point, it’s time to replace the battery if you want to ensure its continued reliability. DIAGNOSTIC METER Although clearly an automotive-based instrument, a diagnostic meter is easily adapted to marine uses and provides added functionality and increased accuracy over a battery conductance tester. The Midtronics inTELLECT EXP-1000, which costs about $1,100, has functions for battery, starter circuit, and alternator testing, as well as capabilities for voltage drop testing. ) With the inTELLECT EXP-1000, you can isolate circuit faults caused by loose, corroded connections or undersized wiring—two common problems on boats—and it can also function as a multimeter.
Note: It’s a good idea to log this information and update it when you add or swap a piece of AC or DC equipment. You’ll be prepared for future circuit troubleshooting. 3 3 If the correct current draw is not known, some preliminary work is needed to make sure the inTELLECT is programmed for the correct amperage (see page 30). VALUE AND UTILITY The results screen for a tested circuit. 11 V) sides of the circuit. These are typical low-voltage readings and well below the 3% maximum value you should see at the main power supply circuit.
The Micro500XL will prompt you to do this if it senses a loose or low-quality connection. fused equipment Leave battery connected to boat’s electrical system, but test each battery separately. USE SWITCH TO SELECT BATTERY. Connect the meter’s red clamp to the battery’s positive terminal and the black clamp to the negative terminal. You can isolate multiple battery setups by using the battery selector switch installed on the boat. For really large battery banks (with more than two batteries), isolate the batteries by disconnecting the positive lead from each battery you are testing in the system to ensure that the Micro500XL is collecting data for just the one battery and not averaging its readings for several batteries.
