 Different Ways to Connect & Sense

Diagram 1 - Simple Setup - Sense two batteries and one float switch
Warning! Do NOT connect "sensor" input to the float switch used for bilge pump. Use a separate float switch.

Diagram 2 - Monitor two batteries and one door switch

  • Door switch - Use a "Normally Open" Magnetic Reed Switch
    • When door is closed, switch needs to be an open circuit (not connected)
    • Alarm sent with door opens and switch closes

Diagram 3 - Monitor two batteries and one door switch with an Arm / Disarm switch

  • Door switch - Use a "Normally Open" Magnetic Reed Switch
    • When door is closed, switch needs to be open
    • Alarm sent with door opens and switch closes
  • Arm / Disarm Switch  - use a "single pole single throw" toggle switch (SPST)
    • Arm = switch closed
    • Disarm = switch open

Diagram 4 - Two Batteries and Multiple Float Switches
- Just connect the float switches in parallel to add more than one to the system.
Warning! Do NOT connect "sensor" input to the float switch used for bilge activation. Use a separate float switch.

Diagram 5 - Advanced Setup - multiple float switches and door switches in parallel with door switch arming / disarm
Warning! Do NOT connect "sensor" input to the float switch used for bilge activation. Use a separate float switch.

Diagram 6 - Monitoring Bilge Pump Activity

  • Connect one battery input to the battery
  • Connect second battery input between bilge and float switch used to operate bildge
