Application of the Month

Boat or Watercraft Bilge Pump Monitoring

Using wireless sensors to monitor boat or watercraft bilge pumps.

Bilge pump failure can be catastrophic when it comes to your boat or watercraft staying afloat. When an issue arises, you want to know immediately so you can take care of the problem before damage occurs or your boat submerges. However, pump motors can burn out and pump triggers can stick. How do you know if there is an issue with your pump before it's too late?

With Monnit Wireless Water Sensors you can have 24/7 monitoring of your boat or watercraft and avoid water damage and possible submersion by receiving real time alerts via SMS text or email if water levels reach a certain point and the bilge pump has not turned on. You can also track bilge pump activity to know how often the pump activates. The system provides a detailed report as well as spreadsheet export functionality. Enjoy the peace of mind that comes from using Monnit wireless sensors to help maintain your boat or watercraft.

Stay Afloat, with Monnit wireless sensors.

What Can You Discover With Monnit Wireless Sensors?

When you begin using Monnit Wireless Sensors you probably purchased them for a specific purpose. Maybe it was to track refrigerator temperatures or to know if there is a plumbing leak. While using the sensors for these applications, you may discover new information about your facility or home that you didn't know before.

Real World Applications:
We were recently contacted by a company that is using our Monnit Wireless Sensors to monitor areas of a building that are not in use. The sensors were purchased to be used as an alerting system to let building maintenance personnel know if the heating system fails, helping them avoid plumbing issues from frozen pipes. When the company looked at the data coming from the sensors, they realized that their control system was setup incorrectly and that the building was heating at night when not needed.

This company began to wonder if there were other areas of their facility that may not be operating as they believed and now use Monnit Wireless Temperature Sensors to monitor areas such as IT servers, office space and storage areas to optimize temperatures for cost savings. They also use Monnit Wireless Light Sensors after realizing they had issues with lights being left on continually in unoccupied areas. Using Monnit Wireless Sensors around their facility has lead to substantial operating cost savings.

Where Can You Use Wireless Sensors?
Here are a few ways Monnit customers are currently using Monnit Wireless Sensors.

    • Boiler temperature monitoring to detect boiler failures or excessive heating.
    • Warehouse temperature monitoring to avoid frozen fire suppression systems.
