Battery Monitors

For land or marine based systems, Triskel’s battery monitors provide a clear picture of real time energy flow into or out of batteries.

Each monitor measures current, voltage and temperature and reports this together with total power, amp hours, battery state of charge and instantaneous battery capacity. The sensors are non-invasive; the power conductor from the battery passes through the monitor, and are fully isolated from the battery’s circuit.

Data from the monitor is reported over the CAN bus making the monitor fully compatible with all other Triskel data management components. A simple graphical picture of the battery’s state of charge and current energy flows can be created allowing the user (or the control system) to make informed decisions about power use and cost.
