LVD Switch eliminates dead batteries
Jul 1, 2008 12:00 PM
Cole Hersee Co introduces its new Low Voltage Disconnect (LVD) Switch, which eliminates dead batteries by automatically disconnecting non-critical loads from a battery when the battery falls below a predefined threshold. When battery voltage is restored, the switch automatically restores functionality of the ancillary equipment.
Suitable for trucking applications, the LVD Switch prevents the loads from disconnecting during starting. The switch provides overcurrent, short-circuit, and overtemperature protections to ensure a safe and reliable operation. It is resistant to vibration and mechanical shock and withstands contamination from moisture, dust, or salt spray.
This switch extends battery life. It has a 200-amp at 12-volt DC rating, and comes with a manual override option to allow users to make or break the connection regardless of battery voltage.
