Re: 12 Meter Pulpit

Maybe the block was there to help the anchor seat itself in the pulpit?

Yes, F32's are trending in Whittier, Alaska right now.
Looks like trailers for F-32's are also trending!

Displaying Engine Gauges on Chartplotter

I have begun a journey to display my engine gauges on a chartplotter. There are some issues with using AC Delco gauges, and I will cover the process and final configuration in this thread: RS11 Installation The final goal is to display the gauges on an easy to access screen on the chartplotter, and ...

Re: Displaying Engine Gauges on Chartplotter

Aha, it actually looks like something I could actually do :wink: maybe. Does this RS11 connect directly to the gage wiring with no interfaces then ? That would be great considering all the drama ( extra boxes,data backbones etc.) with some other providers. Mike The RS11 connects directly to a gauge...

Re: Displaying Engine Gauges on Chartplotter

I have a question. How can you verify the accuracy of what you are seeing ? The reason I am asking is because you changed a value, how did you know what it would produce. Good question! I was using a high quality infrared thermometer on the thermostat housing to get temperatures and recording them ...

Re: Displaying Engine Gauges on Chartplotter

Does the Noland RS11 talk to your MFD using nmea 2000 ? Yes, the RS11 outputs CAN Bus sentences which are compatible with NMEA 2000. Any device on a NMEA 2000 network can see them, including ones connected by wifi such as a tablet. My chartplotter is older, so I had to add a wifi adapter to my netw...

Re: Displaying Engine Gauges on Chartplotter

That's the beauty of this type of solution -- you don't have to tie up the MFD. Because you can set alarms, both on the RS11 and the MFD, you can be warned whenever the gauges would show a value that you don't like. I have to do some more work on this aspect, but it is the driving force for my proje...

Re: Displaying Engine Gauges on Chartplotter

The resister is in the wire going from the terminal block to the RS11. Since the impedance of the temperature sensor is much lower than the input impedance of the RS11, adding even more resistance has almost no effect.

That's hilarious about the backwards gauge!

Displaying Engine Gauges on Chartplotter

One of the electronics upgrades I have long wanted to do is to be able to display my engine gauges on my chartplotter. Part of the reason for this is convenience and backup to the actual gauges. Even more important is being able to set alarms that will let me know if there is a problem. After lookin...

Re: 12 Meter Exhaust Pipe Cracked

Hopefully you don't have something like this going on. This hose was on the head waste line and the cut went past the hose clamp so waste was leaking into the bilge. I guess the hose was too hard to get on the fitting so they slit it to make it easier to install!

Re: Gas Vapor Detection...

Just to close the loop here. I followed this test procedure and it worked perfectly. Great news. The "explosive" alarm went off after about 3 seconds. After removing the butane the alarm went to "danger" in about 2 seconds and finally "safe" a couple seconds after that. Thanks for letting me know!

Re: Gas Vapor Detection...

In this case, the manufacturer has been out of business for over a decade.

A similar manufacturer's test procedure is to use unlit butane gas from a lighter, but I don't know if that will work with Scentry's product.
