Amel Super Maramu 2000
This will allow me to measure the load (in amps) on the Onan Generator, as well as see how much volt I get from the dock (and generator) and double checking the frequency 50 or 60 hertz in case I want to use my dishwasher, washer, (220 Volt) water make, Microwave and Scuba Compressor.
What you will need:
I first learn about Fast Blowing, slow blowing fuses, etc.
There is also the voltage:
Ceramic: full of sand, more durable for vibration, etc.
So I found: 5 x 20 mm 0.5 Amp Fast Fuse 250 Volt and two fuse holders in 16 gages.
Before connecting the wires, as described in the Blue Sea installation: switch off all the 220 volt breakers, then switch off the marina fuse and disconnected the shore cable, and switch off the Inverter.
Blue Sea AC Multimeter 8247
You will need to twist the pair
Twiste the wire, then I added a "domino" (electric connector)
Then I put rescue tape and secure it with zip tie
Plastic bag with blue tape to avoid the dust to go every where
Marked the location I want to drill
I used 3 ft long 16 gages (blue and brown) wire with heat shrink connection
Now connected to the fuse (in my case the shore power was already off... so could not heat the heatshrink connectors)
Before opening the panel, switch off all the 220 volt breakers
Then switch off the marina fuse and disconnected the shore cable
Then switch off the Inverter.
Coming from the bottom of the pictures in "BIG" red and black Arrows are the cable coming from the Shore
Then go to a wire holder with screw. Then go to the top of 220 Volt Breaker.
Then leave out of that breaker then back up to 2 other wire holder before to be distributed
Brown Arrow will go to Slot 1 of the Blue Sea AC Multimeter
Blue Arrow will go to Slot 3 of the Blue Sea AC Multimeter
White Arrow is the wattmeter sensor
Black Arrow (twisted pair) will go to Slot 4 and 5 of the Blue Sea AC Multimeter
Make the wires go through the backing of the of the Blue Sea AC Multimeter
Then through the holw
Brown wire to Slot 1 of the Blue Sea AC Multimeter
Brown Arrow will go to Slot 3 of the Blue Sea AC Multimeter
Twisted pair to Slot 4 and 5 of the Blue Sea AC Multimeter
Note: I was lucky (50% chance) as when I connected twisted pair the amp meter worked right away
The instructions says that if it does not work, you need to reverse the twisted pair (4 to 5 and to 4)
Put in place and screw the holding place behind
Put back the 220 Volt panel cover
Then I switch on the shore power and saw 214 Volt
Press the right button and now showing the Amps
Press the right button and now showing the Frequency in Hertz
Press the right button and now showing the Watts
Then I switch the "outlet" breakers on then one of my battery charger and it show the Watts
Then the Amps
To heat shrink the wire, I protected with a pan
Then in good Amel tradition, I put 2 spare 0.5 Amp Fast Fuse 250 Voltin a little bag with zip tie
