Re: Isolation Transformer Sound Question

Arno Luijten
 

Hi,

You do not mention which model Amel you have.
I'm not sure how loud they are but being a classic transformer and a big one the 50/60 hum could be quite annoying. Putting them against a wooden wall could make it a giant loudspeaker so to say.
Apart from that you may want to consider the heat coming off the transformer. They need sufficient airflow. Also they are quite heavy so you need to mount them quite sturdy.
I once put a similar isolation transformer in a boat (in a locker) and the sound in the adjacent cabin was clearly audible. Luckily nobody had to sleep there.

Cheers,

Re: Volvo D3-110 Sensor - Spare Sensor Sets

 

Ruedi,

The best advice I can give you to get a list is to contact Volvo France for that list with your model and serial number. You have model C and I believe the latest model is at least H. 

Volvo France is the ones who modified at least some, maybe all of the D3s for isolated ground. There might be a different sensor between some models. I am not sure of that. 

The sensor that seems to be the most common sensor to fail and cause problems is the boost sensor followed by the oil pressure sensor, but this is not an analytical answer.

If/when you get an answer, please let me know, and if possible, ask which models of the D3, in addition to the C, the list will apply to. 

Best,

Because our Volvo D3-110 is running with some sensors, I try to find out which of those are most important and vital to have as spare. I do have the D3-110 C and I’m quite happy with it, but I feel better to have those sensors who could fail as spare.

 

Does anyone have a list and a source of those vital sensors?

Can anybody let us know which of those you have spare and where you ordered them?

 

@Bill Rose: Do I need to have all these sensors with isolated ground? Not sure about these?

I found some with 3 Pins, four pins and also 2 pins. The “m prop valve” Sensor has only 2 pins and therefore most likely not with isolated ground?? Correct?

Resource - hinges for chain locker A54

Stefan Schaufert
 

Dear Amelians,

 

18 month ago I tried to refurbish the hinges on the anchor locker/ cover door.

Without success. 

Unfortunately Maud wrote me today that the (chain locker)

„hinges for the lockers of your boat are no longer available from us.“

 

They appear to be the same as for the watertight bulkhead doors.

 

Does anybody used another resource to get this hinges?

Isolation Transformer Sound Question

Chris Doucette
 

Hi-

Installing a Victron 3600 Watt Auto 115/230 V  Isolation Transformer- Im selecting the spot- I beleive it might go right in the small area underneath and forward of the chart table.  
Question: any persons know how load these are?  More or less than a Muliplus?

Hi,

Yes the central spindle does pull out from the top. It can be stubborn at times but it should come out once you have removed the two or three inserts that sit at the top of the tower where the spindle sinks into.
You may need to use some penetrating oil to free them up a bit more.

Re: Running larger battery charger cables

Bill Kinney
 

If you drill holes here, be sure to figure out how you are going to make them waterproof after running the cables.   This is one of the watertight bulkheads that is critical to making an Amel, an Amel.  The engine room is by far the most likely place to have water entering the boat in an unplanned manner.  That is a big enough problem, but having holes which allow that problem to spread unchecked to the rest of the hull has the potential to turn a big problem into a disaster.


Many of the older Amels I have been on have some, or in a few cases all, of the watertight bulkheads compromised by unthinking modifications.

If you have an Amel savvy surveyor, one of the first things he’ll look for is holes in what are supposed to be watertight bulkheads.
