Solid State Battery Guards.
The PowerTector Battery Guard is a solid state battery device that will monitor the source voltage and disconnect the equipment from the battery if the voltage falls below a pre-determined level. This can work to ensure that there is always sufficient voltage remaining in the battery to start a vehicle engine or ensure power is available for other critical applications. The total discharge of a lead acid battery can also cause damage to the cells significantly shortening the life of the battery. The PowerTector unit can also be set to disconnect equipment at a lower voltage that will still protect the battery from total discharge, while allowing for maximum battery usage.
A Wide Range of Features.
There are six units in the range from 10A to 200A. The 10A and 20A unit offer a simple inline system, usually wired to a specific piece of equipment. These units do not require chassis mounting and simply connect and tie wrap neatly within the wiring system.
The 40A and 60A units are connected by M6 brass bolts, the 100A and 200A by M10 brass bolts and use a three point mounting system to avoid rocking or stress to the electronics when mounted on uneven surfaces. Heat is dissipated into our custom manufactured die cast casing and all units will operate at full power without additional heatsink dissipation.
Manual Shutdown Facility.
From 40A upwards, the units have the facility to be manually shutdown either through the ignition or a dedicated switch. In addition, from 100A upwards the units can have an override switch fitted. This allows the units to be reactivated for four minutes to allow emergency actions to be performed.
All units in the range are supplied pre-programmed for a variety of scenarios offering higher or lower disconnect voltages and it is quick and simple to select the correct programme to suit your needs.
Using the simple programming terminal, select the pre-set disconnect voltage according to your requirements.
LED indicates operational status.
Audible alarm and/or visual indicator can be installed in the dashboard or cockpit to alert operator of a potential problem.
Switch terminal allows the unit to be operated via the ignition or a manual switch.
The PowerTector battery guards offer excellent protection for communication and other mission critical applications.
