VirCru Shore Power Sensor (UK Plug)

Keep track of your boats shore power connection with the VirCru Shore Power Sensor. Engineered to reliably monitor the power flow between your boat and the shore – and report it back to you! Any interruptions are instantly detected and relayed as an alert via your VirCru app. This is the UK plug version – also available in EU format.
(Connects wirelessly to the VirCru Hub)


The power level of your vessel is probably one of your primary concerns when you are away from your boat. Making sure you have enough power to run the electronics on your boat is vital to ensuring your continued safety at sea (or river). Fortunately, most berths you can moor at provide a shore power option of some description. But how do you know you are getting power consistently? Or if there is a fault in the supply? Or if it has been accidentally disconnected? Fortunately, VirCru has your back with our Shore Power Sensor! This nifty little boat power sensor monitors your connection continuously, and notifies you when power drops. The graph provides you with a recent timeline of your connection too, allowing you to see if this is a frequent occurrence and needs to be investigated. Note should be made that this model is for UK power plugs only.

Care should be taken when installing the sensor to ensure that it is not after the mains isolator. As when you turn the mains of the boat off, you would essentially be turning the connection to the sensor off and get a false reading . We recommend installing this to a socket that is already installed or have one installed before the mains isolator to ensure you get accurate information at all times. Installing the sensor tag itself is as easy as attaching it to a flat surface using 3M™ Dual Lock™ Reclosable Fastener, which works similarly to traditional hook and loop fasteners.

And with the VirCru app you can monitor your vessel’s shore power connection with a few taps on your smart device of choice. Supported on both android and iOS, remotely monitoring and interacting with your boat has never been easier. The app is necessary for you, the user, to communicate with your shore power sensor and monitor your system remotely. The Shore Power Sensor communicates with the VirCru Connected Hub which then transfers the data to our servers and on to your app. and allows you to control it.
