This App Note describes how to enable Indicator Run time messages for SeaGauge Remote Sensor Units using the vDash Windows OS configuration application.
SeaGauge has 8/12 Indicator inputs which are binary voltage detect (ON/OFF) or (High/Low). They are used for bilge pumps, float switches, lights, hatch doors, and alarms.
A custom NMEA 2000 PGN 65293 can be enabled for each of the first 8 indicator inputs that track the cumulative run time in seconds and the on/off cycles.
These messages are used by SeaSmart Web Pages and the HelmSmart Service for analytics. instrumentation, and alerts.
Requires SeaGauge G2 Remote Firmware update SGRMG2FW-030319 available on this site.
