Battery temp monitor and alarm


karkauai
 

Hi All,
I want to add a temp sensor with monitor and alarm to my battery compartment.  My primary charger has a temp sensor, but that doesn’t give a readout or even work at all unless I am using the charger. With charging by a backup charger, Yanmar, and now Solar, none of which have a temp sensor, I want to be able to monitor temp in the battery compartment.  I’ve been searching the net and so far only find monitors that will notify me by cell phone and other heigh-tech solutions.  I just want a simple sensor with a remote monitor that I can set to give an audible alarm if temp exceeds a set value.  Does anyone have something like this?  Can you share what model and where you found it?
thanks in advance

Thanks Bill...guess I should have looked in “the Book” first.
That looks like what I want.  Who makes it?

I think I bought that one on Amazon for about $20. I is designed for a home. The probe has a wire about 1 meter long. It has an alarm. Shop Amazon and I  sure you'll have several choices.

I put a dual zone Taylor (model is 1442?).

Works fine and the batteries are good for a year or so. 

(Just changed the batteries so it's time to go through the "settings ritual" again :)

Hi Kent,
Check on Amazon - they've got wireless ones with multiple sensors for $15 - $25 ish.

I am curious about the loudness of the alarm.  I have the model that Bill posted, and mounted down by the battery switches.  The alarm is not very loud and I think would not be noticed while motoring.  We observe frequently but a loud alarm would be good.
