Monitor your battery or battery bank for a low voltage, Know when the battery must be charged. Loud tonal alarm and indicator sounds when battery must be charged.
Extending the life of your battery reminds you to charge when the battery is half depleted. Unless you are constantly monitoring the voltage level the battery you will not know when to charge. Most marine, motorcycle, and automotive style batteries must be recharged when discharged to the maximum level. If the battery is left to discharge beyond this point it power capacity is permanently reduced and the the battery life is shortened. If the battery is left to fully discharge to zero, like when stored for a prolonged period or excessively drained, the battery can be ruined.
This 12 volt battery monitor panel prevents that condition by alarming when the maximum discharge point is reached. It is ready to install, comes with instructions. Alarms when battery voltage drops to the minimum voltage level, when the battery must be recharged to prevent permanent damage. The built in high pitch tonal alarm and a red warning LED alerts you to the low battery condition. A two position switch allows you to turn off the alarm but keeps the red LED illuminated. The alarm is reset when the battery is plugged into the charger and the voltage is restored. Comes with a waterproof fused 36"cables and your choice of battery stud ring terminals. The panel is splash proof from the front. #BTM5
