Boatowner s Illustrated Electrical Handbook by Charlie Wing

By Charlie Wing

Even if you're taking to the ocean below energy or sail, even if you leap round the bay on your runabout or move oceans on your cruiser, youll locate every thing you want to continue, fix, and improve your boats DC and AC electric structures during this thoroughly sensible advisor. Boatowners Illustrated electric guide is the ordinary, roll-up-your-sleeves guide for onboard electric tasks, from solving unfastened connections to rewiring your boat to ABYC standards.
«The Boatowners Illustrated electric instruction manual is ideal for studying how your boats electric approach and masses of its gear works, and it'll be a useful consultant whilst including apparatus in addition. This publication has to be in each boaters library as a prepared reference on find out how to make potent maintenance and variations that conform to ABYC standards.»-from the Foreword through Ed Sherman, Senior teacher and Curriculum clothier, American Boat and Yacht Council

Considering the cost of the batteries alone, the optimum depth of discharge is approximately 50%. 2. Due to a lower purchase cost, the golf cart battery is the most economical battery. Fig. 16 Expected Charge/Discharge Cycles Best wet cells 6K Golf cart (6V) Typical AGM 4K Charging Cutoff Typical gelled 2K 0K 0 20 40 60 Depth of Discharge, % 80 100 A boat is not an ideal environment, so you should count on getting about half of the cycles shown. Thus, instead of 3,000 discharges to 50% for the best wet-acid battery, you might assume 1,500 cycles.

If, as recommended, the house batteries are separated into two banks, there is little need for a dedicated engine-starting battery. 40 Batteries Some boaters still carry a small automotive enginestarting battery as a safety backup, however. Absorbed-glass mat batteries were developed as superior engine-starting batteries, but are being used more and more as marine house batteries. They retain all of their electrolyte in spongy fiberglass mats and are “sealed” with valve-regulated caps, which recombine charging gases under most conditions.

5-volt battery. In the best case, the resistance reading will be grossly in error. At worst, we will burn out the 50 µA ammeter. In general, to measure the resistance of a circuit component, you must first remove the component from the circuit by disconnecting one of its leads. Never try to measure resistance within a circuit with a live voltage. A similar caution applies to measuring current in a circuit directly with a multimeter. 25 amp). Others contain an internal shunt that allows measurements up to 10 amps.
