SAVE money and time WITH THIS state of the art advisor TO the most recent, so much complex DIAGNOSTIC gear AND TECHNIQUES

"Ed Sherman is one in all America's nice lecturers and communicators of marine technology." -- Tim Murphy, former govt editor, Cruising World

Whether you're a marine electronics expert or a boatowner, Advanced Marine Electrics and Electronics Troubleshooting is helping you already know the hot, extra strong tools of troubleshooting marine electric and digital structures. a contemporary boat's subtle installations and networked electronics can stretch the conventional diagnostic equipment, in line with hassle lighting fixtures and multimeters, earlier their beneficial limits. This publication will aid you:

  • Use microprocessor-based diagnostic instruments and strategies from the car 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 dispose of stray-current resources and galvanic corrosion

13 V) than the voltage at the battery terminals with the engine turned off. This difference just means the charging system is doing something. 5 V above the initial battery reading with the engine off, then the voltage regulator is at fault. 5 volt above the static battery voltage, the alternator’s amperage capacity is too small for the loads it is serving. results of the battery condition tests. This information has more value than you might think, but it requires a bit of prior recordkeeping on your part.

1 switch open + bus bar fuse cabin light DC + battery supplementary test leads (provided with meter) – bus bar DC – inTELLECT EXP-1000 To calculate voltage drop, both of the inTELLECT EXP-1000’s lead sets are required. The battery test lead and the DMM (digital multimeter) lead have different plug ends, so you can’t connect them incorrectly at the meter. Each lead has one black and one red end clamp for attachment to the circuit. Attach the red lead from the DMM lead on the positive side at the circuit’s source of power, and the black lead to the negative side.

CHAPTER Testing Batteries, Charging Systems, and Starter Circuits, and Measuring Voltage Drop 2 O f all the areas marine electricians or boatowners must deal with, batteries, alternators, and starter motors, along with their related circuitry, are among the most critical. Boats rely heavily on the integrity of their DC electrical system; on most boats, if the batteries go dead, you’re simply out of luck—you can’t walk home! The electrical system is one area where our automotive counterparts have the advantage.
