Globballink 520 relay, but how?

Have a question about the relay function of the Globallink 520. I have basic knowledge on electronics. I know for instance the positive side of a battery is the side with the "knobby" thing on it's end. My question is: since the Globallink relay cannot be fed more than 3V (otherwise it explodes) am I right to assume I should get a (another) relay that has 3V on the one side, so it will trigger it's relayswitch so that I can switch on a bigger load? Or, if I am mistaken, how do I switch a substantial (10A, 12V) load with the relay onboard the Globallink 520? Please take me through this step by step and bear in mind my complete and utter ignorance on the matter.

GlobalLink 520 polling period unreliability

I have recently installed a GlobalLink 520 on my boat in the UK. LTE-M provider is Telefonica Europe, which is O2 in the UK.

It’s connected to a BMV712S and a SmartSolar 150|45. Everything works fine. I have a really good signal (-65dBm reported) utilising an external antenna.

However….. whilst most of the time the whole system works perfectly, some days I experience large time gaps in the transmission of information. Instead of 15 minutes, there can be a gap of 2, or even 3 hours. This can happen several times a day, on some days. I’m convinced it’s not my antenna setup as the GlobalLink reports a very strong signal.

Any ideas what is causing this, and is anyone else experiencing the same phenomenon? Any solutions? Or is it a polling problem with Telefonica Europe?

PS: For the avoidance of doubt, my boat has been continuously moored, in the same place, since the GlobalLink was first installed about 10 days ago. ie: no movement is involved.

VRM installation map - Globallink 520 - map won't center in full screen mode / add terrain mode ?

When using the VRM "All installation" dashboard and press the full screen map button and go full screen, every time you hover a site in the map with your mouse cursor, the sites jumps to the top part of the screen and "adjust" the map to center as it was still in window mode / dashboard with map on the very top part.

It won't center the site to the center of the full screen page...

Very annoying as you always have to drag the map down, again and again...!!

Screenshot below is hovering the site with the red arrow...



And can we add the possibility of "terrain" mode of the map?

The terrain map is much better for static sites with more details etc.

Global Link 520 alarm type settings in VRM for pilge pump counter

Hi, I'm using Global Link 520 with latest beta and VC+VRM. Now wondering how to set alarm for pilge pump monitoring. Idea is to shortcut digital input (1 & GND) with relay that is controlled by pilge pump, and have a control. Now, to be able to follow when and how many times the pilge is running, I need to find correct alarm parameters. Does anyone have experience on this?

VRM alarm rule with multiple parameters «and»

Is it possible to make an alarm rule with multiple parameters? I have a Globallink 520 connected to a BMV-712 and use the relay for remote start of a diesel heater, it would be very neat to get an alarm if the heater for some reason would not start. That could be done with an alarm triggered by relay state closed AND consumption <0.4A (as the heater consumption is 0.4A and standby less).
