Cleaning the catch monitoring sensor prior to charging
The charging sockets on the sensor are filled with sea water when the sensor is used. This water must be removed before the charger plug is inserted. All the sockets on the sensor must be dried and cleaned before charging can take place.
The sensor must never be charged when it is mounted in the door adapter or on the trawl.
- Use high pressure air, and direct the nozzle into each of the sockets. Blow out water and moisture.
- Use a small brush or a cotton swab, and clean each socket thoroughly.
- Wipe off the sensor with a dry lint free cloth. Pay special attention to the area close to the charger sockets.
