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 timed version is also available which will disconnect automatically a set period after the ignition has been switched off.
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.
An alarm output is supplied which, once the threshold has been reached for 10 seconds, will activate, sounding an alarm or other indicating device for a further 50 seconds prior to disconnection. This allows the operator to restart the engine or take other action to maintain continuous power.
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.
