Why Battery isolator is important to your Boat Battery?

We want to make sure that anything we buy, we can always maximize its worth. This is the reason why we need to be cautious when it comes to buying something. Boat battery for example must be taken care of after purchasing but we must be aware on what are the things we need to know what things to consider in buying boat battery. Here’s our tip for you boaters. When choosing a battery you must:

1. Determining the Ampere Hour Draw of Your Boat. To determine the ampere you need to know what electrical equipment you have and what the 12-volt amp draw is. For example 12 volt item with 500 gph can draw 2.0 amp, while 1000 gph can draw 2.9 amp.

2. Understanding Battery Ratings. These ratings are designed to help you select the proper battery for your application. For example Ampere Hour Rating (Reference Rating) is the number of amps which a battery can distribute for a 20-hour period. The bigger the ampere hour rating, the more power the battery can deliver over time. Marine Cranking Amps (MCA) is the number of amps a battery can supply at 32 0 cell. Reserve Capacity (RC) is the time, in minutes, for which a battery will deliver 25 amperes at 800

Now that you understand how to select the right boat battery, it is significant as well to get the best battery isolator. Why? Because this battery isolator has the capability to simultaneously charge more than one battery from a single power source (e.g., an alternator) without connecting the battery terminals together in parallel. This is helpful because a weak or dead battery will drain the charge from a strong battery if both are connected directly together. To prevent this happening, it is wise to get battery isolator. For battery isolator that will last, check this ARCO Battery Isolator BI- 0702-4 F. This represents the time which the battery will last to operate.

OMC Engine Wiring Harness

An engine wiring harness is a string of cables or wires which transmit power or energy to various sections of the engine. It carries power back and forth between the fuse box, the engine and any other electrical components located under the hood of the car. The wiring harness reduces the risk of an electrical short. http://www.ask.com/question/what-is-an-engine-wiring-harness

It is clear then how important this engine wiring harnesses. We are proud to inform you our dear boaters that we have the best engine wiring harnesses manufacturer, the CDI Electronics.

OMC Stator Replacement

By definition, the stator can act as the field magnet, interacting with the armature to create motion, or it may act as the armature, receiving its influence from moving field coils on the rotor. The stator is the device that generates power, thus, producing alternating current or AC. And so, without a stator power will not be generated which means the motor will not work. And this is awfully bad for us boat lover.

Here come the boating season and we cannot go sailing or boating or fishing all because the stator fails to work. Are we going to allow this thing to happen. A big no! So for now, we need to check carefully our stator and if we find that it is no longer working properly, replacement is necessary.

Good thing http://www.magemarinestore offers a wide variety of stator replacement. For today, we will be featuring stator replacement for OMC. Take a peak on the following stator below.

How to know when Voltage Regulator is not working anymore?-

Voltage regulator as we knew is a device that controls the amount of voltage that passes through the motor. It is important is electrical device since voltage regulator is the one that stabilize the DC or direct current to our electrical device. If our voltage regulator malfunction, chances are, inefficiency of electrical device like motor will be experienced. So, how we can identify if the voltage regulator is not working anymore?

“Some of the signs of a bad voltage regulator are dimmed or pulsing lights, dead battery, and unpredictable engine performance. It is also stated that engine stalling, sputtering, and intermittent acceleration will occur when the vehicle’s voltage regulator is unable to handle the power that is put out by the vehicle’s stock alternator. A bad voltage regulator can rapidly diminish the alternator’s ability to cycle power from the battery as well.” http://www.ask.com/question/signs-of-a-bad-voltage-regulator and when we experience all these signs the best thing to do is to change your voltage regulator

Tilt Trim Motors

Did you know that Power Tilt and Trim units are electro-hydraulic mechanisms driven by a motor-driven gear pump as a source of providing hydraulic pressure? The angle of the outboard machine is actively changed by trim function, and an efficient running is secured. Tilt function is useful for the protection of the outboard engine. Moreover, the hull and the outboard engine is prevented being damaged by Shock absorbing function (https://www.showa1.com/en/product/boat/power_tilt_trim.html). This is the reason why we need to choose the right tilt trim motor for our boat. Tilt trim motor will enable us to either speed up or slow down our boat depending on our tilt trim performance.
