PBUS System

PBUS system monitors

The system monitors PSS, PSM2 and PSL serve as central display and user interface. The electrical system is monitored, controlled and managed via the system monitors. Several system monitors can be mounted side by side to display different information like tanks, batteries, power balance or AC grid simultaneously. Alternatively, several system monitors can be installed at different locations on board to be able to retrieve the desired information independently. With the system monitor as the central unit, you can expand your on-board system step by step from the smallest expansion stage, e.g. with only one shunt SHX as battery monitor, to the function as a multifunctional display or control panel in a digitally switched CAN bus system.

  •     With the battery management shunt SHX 300 / SHC 612 a battery group can be monitored.
  •     With the shunt SHX 300 an energy balance can be created.
  •     With the tank interface CMT2 up to 4 tanks can be monitored at a time.
  •     With the CMR4 switching interface, 4 switching functions can be implemented.
  •     With the AC-Interface CAV the AC system can be monitored.
  •     With the temperature interface TPC4 up to 4 temperatures can be monitored at a time.
  •     Monitoring and control of the LAU AC changeover units, the ACE series chargers and the EM-box energy management box.


When configuring your system, please also note that you must order the corresponding M12 connection cables for connecting the individual components.

FBC 265

FBC265 FBC

Remote battery main switch with adjustable deep discharge and overvoltage protection

 

For convenient switching of the battery main switch or the power supply. The FBC 265 remote-controlled main battery switch is used for the control of high-current loads such as winches, anchor winches and inverters (energy management). The adjustable over- and undervoltage protection also protects the battery from deep discharge. If the continuous current load is greater than 260 A (e.g. bow thruster), the current carrying capacity can be increased to 500 A by combining the TSC interface with the remote main switch FBR 500. For independent operation of the main switch from the P-BUS, we recommend installing a control button also for emergency operation. The battery main switch can be manually operated directly on the relay via the red and yellow buttons.

 

Operation via an external push button and/or P-BUS. All adjustments can be set in the PSM/PSL. Manual emergency operation directly at the relay possible.
