2015 Harbor Test Data

Posted the 2015 results of the annual Harbor Test of my Thoosa 9000 EP system. My boat is 30 feet long and 16,000 lbs with an 11 foot beam. No real surprises after eight years with EP.

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
