Design and Equipment
There are two aspects to look out for when installing a marine power system: design and equipment. The equipment you choose should be matched to the size and load requirements of your craft, the engine configuration (inboard, outboard, etc.), and the existing power setup. The design process should take all these factors into account when selecting the equipment and incorporating it into the system.
Single-Source Electrical Suppliers
Getting both the design and the equipment from a single source ensures that your system is uniform and functional. Your supplier will be very familiar with their equipment, and that aids dramatically in the design process. It naturally lends itself toward skilled engineering of your marine power system that affords you the following benefits:
- Uniform control: Coming from one source, the equipment will all be handled in the same way and interconnect properly. This makes it easy for you to operate.
- Avoid interference: Depending on the configuration, installing a marine electrical control system may interfere with navigational tools and other electronic equipment. Familiarity with the equipment will allow your system engineer to account for these functions during the design process and prevent interference.
- Easily customizable: For suppliers who handle both equipment and design, the process of matching system configurations to your specific needs will be much quicker.
Ultimately, it comes down to knowing what equipment you need for the job, how it fits in with your existing systems, and how it should be installed. The end result is smooth operation and increased power utilization. Atlas Marine Systems handles design, equipment, and installation, ensuring your craft operates at its very best at all times.
