Monitrol cathodic protection system?

Monitrol meters mounted by breaker panels on our GB42. There is no manual on board, and no info on internet that I can find. Any help on what it does (or doesn't) do, and what it is telling me would be appreciated.

It transform your boat in giant electrode that dissolves all other boats around so you won't risk yours
Of course I am just kidding and I have no clue.

Hi, you can read how made the fluke "manual" measures boat cure/potential

"Monitrol" you have a solid system to track these, I hope fluke manual will help you to understand your own system.

Seems similar to an Electroguard Cathodic Protection System I used to have on my old wood boat.

If I recall correctly, it monitors the level of cathodic protection needed by the external metals, and meters out the available anode protection to meet the need.

It was an excellent tool for a wood boat, where there was typically over-protection while the anodes were new, then under-protection when the anodes were wasted.
