The Oceanic Systems’ Bilge Detector Switch permits the bilge pump to be switched on in the presence of water.
This easy to install unit is composed of a resin-coated watertight casing with operation managed by a microcontroller. It has an advanced digital filter to distinguish the presence of water and an extended power supply range too. This unit has the option of being installed with a remote indication of operation status by led or remote control pane which will offer a signal if the bilge pump is on for a prolonged period of time, or a manual remote pump switch-on by button or remote control panel.
There is a switch-on/switch-off delay to avoid false switch-on/switch-off cycling of the pump caused by the roll of the boat. The 5302 has the ability to function over a wide range of environmental temperatures and is protected against excessive battery rundown.
