Police rely on their vehicle equipment for surveillance, communications, and projection of force that can be life-saving. Lights, sirens, radios, GPS, radar, computers, and even listening devices and video become active extensions of an officer’s eyes, ears, hands, and voice.
Power management is a critical component of officer capability. When police cars and vans operate in stealth mode, they require silent battery power for their equipment. Police motorcycles are constrained by size and weight limitations for batteries. Merlin is particularly well suited to these challenging electrical environments.
Consider Merlin’s many product solutions:
DEPENDABILITY:Overcharging and excessively discharging batteries cause internal damage and affect future performance. Merlin maintains batteries in their peak operating range, which extends battery life and reduces the likelihood of dead batteries.
CONFIDENCE:With always-accurate battery monitoring, officers will not question the state of their batteries. Display battery State of Charge levels, sound alarms for low batteries, or integrate with intelligent split charging. Eliminate unnecessary idling and have confidence that your vehicle will start.
SAFETY: Automatically shed loads to reserve battery capacity for engine starting and communications. Officers can maintain control with manual override switches for battery isolation, switching, and paralleling.
SAVINGS: Proper battery management results in lower maintenance costs due to enhanced reliability. Extended battery life reduces replacement costs. Intelligent split charging increases the efficiency of your electrical system, which ultimately saves on fuel.
