Split charge to multiple battery banks is an integral part of the system, using the
advanced P2000 system. The module also picks up the voltage and amperage redings
for the display via re-installed integral shunts, requiring only a single multi-core
data cable to feed the display, making for a simple installation.
VSR system employs heavy duty contactors rated at 100, 200 and 350 amp which are
sealed to IP66, providing far greater switching than other systems, and includes
remote timed on emergency link start for low engine battery capacity.
VASR system includes current limiting to prevent overload to the charging system
and engine battery from inverter or thruster operation with low battery voltage.
battgaurdcan be fitted to avoid a flat service battery from excessive inverter use.
It also provides a power reserve for critical circuits while improving battery life.
continuous rating 80, 125 and 250 amp
multi-function remote control panel with :-
Bar-graph display provides multiple view of both volt and amp readings for all load
batteries, allowing battery level, plus charge and discharge to be monitored for
all batteries simultaneously.
Digital + bar-graph allows overall view of batteries via bar-graph, then checked
accurately if required with the digital read-out
Fresh water tank levelcan be checked on the ammeter bar-graph display, it only requires
fitting a remote tank level sensor.
Powercentre have manufactured switch panels since 1983, during this period supplying
around 10,000 units, mainly custom panels to the production boat builders.
Powercentre has always had a number of design rules, no fuses are fitted only circuit
breakers, battery status and split charging is integral when fitted, and no stick-on
labels are used.
To-day we offer a range of standard or custom one-off switch panels for boat builders
or individuals fitting out a boat. These are based on a range of standard modules,
circuit breakers, displays, split charge and flat battery protection. Though made
up of standard modules, the panel size and layout are designed by Powercentre to
suit your particular boat.
The new compact range of switch panel coming on-line employ PTC re-setable fuses.
This is a Polymer that has a low resistance normally, if a high current is applied
it changes to a high resistance. This blocks the current flow until the fault is
removed, at which point it reverts to a low resistance. Due to it’s construction
it is waterproof and ideal for damp environment
The existing range uses thermal circuit breakers, mounted to give a flush re-set
button. Switching is carried out with either a rocker, or toggle switch with visual
indication of switch on and circuit breaker tripped via red and green LED’s
PTC protection is mounted alongside the switch, if it trips a window lights red,
a blue light indicates circuit live. A number of switches can be fitted 2 fuses allowing
independent feeds to 2 circuits.
Navigation lightsprovide independent circuit protection to each circuit. all the
navigation light switches are inter-locked to only allow correct sequence. The boat
mimic indicates which navigation lights are switched on.
Thermal circuit breakers are mounted next to the switch, in normal use they are flush
with the panels front, on tripping they pop out and show a red light.
