ASMO Controller--Data Logging?

I have an ASMO Thoosa 9000 system in my Ericson 30+  Does someone have a guide to pulling data out of the system?  I have heard that the controller keeps some event data.  I notice when I open the controller black box, that the big green brick inside has an RS 232 port. Is that just for programming, or can one also pull data out of it?  I've like to be able to keep a log of what's happening with the motor and battery system.  Thanks. --Ernie GalvanZenergy, Ericson 30+See More

From The Beginning

Hi, I am a new member.  I sail a 1980 Ericson 25+.  LOA 25.5; displacement 5000 lb., fractional rig, sloop.  Until a couple of years ago, my aux. power was small, stock Volvo/Penta, with a saildrive.  When my motor seized, I got an outboard 9.9 and hung it off the back, which is not pretty, and interferes with swim ladder; must be removed when on mooring for a variety of reasons; and prop exposed in Buzzards Bay seas sometimes.  I sail out of New Bedford.  I am planning on taking the…See More

Why 48 volt motors?

I've noticed the majority of vendors base their EP motors on 48 volts, how come?I saw a Greenstar Marine product at the Portland boat show & the size 10 motor was 24 volts, their larger motor was 48. I think Mastervolt also has a 24 v motor in the smaller size also.That got me to thinking why 48 volts? Is it because golf cart motors are 48 & that became the starting point for recreational EP?  If you could find/get a motor that ran on 24 volts, it would be far easier to have a larger…See More

New to electric seas and electric boating

Hi group,This is our first post, so a brief introduction:We just bought a 43 foot catamaran with twin solomon drives. 5kw each.We are used to old honest yanmar diesels, so this electric propulsion is quite new for us.Also we have not a fully understanding of the system so we will run into technical questions.Hopefully this group can help us out a little. We will share of course on how we fare with this new direction.cheers, PepSee More
