The PSM Systems Monitor and BCM Battery Controller from philippi are solutions for your boat's management needs.
The PSM provides comprehensive information of a vessel’s vital systems plus remote switching and other functions. Using a CAN based digital network, communication between the various components is by Ethernet cable, and is a simple “plug-and-play” installation. Monitoring is available for up to 16 batteries, 16 tanks, and multiple DC energy loads or sources. Multiple Displays can be connected to a PSM system, and the 2.8” x 2.1” high-color, touch-activated screen has attractive and easy-to-identify graphics and commands. Operation is simple, logical, and intuitive, with all set-up procedures being performed on the screen with no computer connection necessary. A PSM system can be as basic as one Display and one Shunt, and adding components is a simple matter of connecting them in to the Ethernet cable daisy-chain and letting the PSM logic sort out the rest. Software upgrades are made possible via a Micro SD Card reader in the PSM Display.
The BCM is a state-of-the-art, highly accurate instrument that employs digital data transfer between a Shunt and Monitor. To achieve this, the Shunt is equipped with a 16 bit micro processor that converts the current reading to digital data before then transferring it to the Monitor. The result is high overall accuracy and reliability, especially accumulatively over time, as the measurements are made at the Shunt and not at the end of a pair of wires extended to the Monitor, which are susceptible to induction, interference or losses.
