Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] AC Panel Green Light

Ben,

If you look back in the photo section, you will see my power monitoring panel with a circuit breaker. The meters are mounted in the triangular piece of wood to port of the Ac panel. There is a volt, amp, and frequency meter mounted on it in addition to the circuit breaker.

It is always on .

January 24 this year I plugged into a 50 amp pedestal and saw there was 110 volts coming out of it. If I did not have my additional circuit breaker off I would have damaged a lot of things. Having all 3 meters on at once really is nice as you can just look over at any time and see whats happening in big red numbers.

Thanks Bill .  I will check out light source as well as meter.  I have been thinking a Cruz Pro or maybe Blue Sea would be invaluable.  Especially in older marinas where you could experience low or high voltage and be unawares.  I did put a multi meter on my generator and found it was putting out only 200 vac.  I was able to go into control box and adjust upward to 220 vac.  A permanently installed meter would have informed me much sooner.

Ben,

 

The Green 220VAC light on BeBe has gotten dimmer with age. I have not looked, but I am guessing it is a 220VAC LED.

This, or something similar would likely work:

You may want to consider installing something more than a bulb, which really tells you nothing.

 

I installed a CruzPro VAF110. It is a TriData meter that tells me Volts, Amps being consumed, and Frequency (50 or 60htz). http://www.cruzpro.com/vaf110.html

 

 

This gives me data on shore power and on generator power, which ever source is delivering power to the main AC breaker box.

 

I am sure that there are other meters/gauges that do the same thing.

 

Best,

 

Bill

Sorry Ian.  I inadvertently left signature line off.  My bad.  Thanks for info.  I will contact Amel as I have other parts I need order.

Has anyone had the AC panel green light fail?  Mine failed -  lots of Power from genset or shore but no light.  I assume it is small 220v AC bulb.  Can anyone recommend a source ?
