We hope to answer all of these here - but undoubtedly we'll miss some ! "How to I?" questions in relevant sections under the Knowledge Base tree.

Yes - it is designed to consume a low current - it's based around the Raspberry Pi. The system expects a step-down to 5 volts to run the Boat Server/Raspberry Pi. It will run from 12V, 24V or mains power.

If you use the sensors, which come with a wire-free Sensor Control Unit then you will need to step-down that down to 9 volts.

NOTE : all kits come with the appropriate stepdown. Just add power :)
