PREVENTING THE BATTERY DEATH SPIRAL
Battery Solutions That Keep Your Batteries Healthier Longer
Draining a battery beyond half its capacity begins to cause internal damage such as sulfur build-up and degradation of cell plate materials. This damage reduces battery capacity, making excessive discharging more likely to occur again in the future. The battery death spiral – excessive discharges causing reduced capacity and reduced capacity causing excessive discharges – explains the rapid deterioration of battery performance commonly experienced.
PowerGuard Lite and PowerGuard Pro prevent the battery death spiral. They reduce maintenance and replacement costs by extending battery life, eliminating dead batteries, and delivering more consistent performance.
POWERGUARD LITE: Protection For A Single Battery Bank
Dead battery protection for a single 12V or 24V battery bank.
Protects engine starting or deep cycle auxiliary batteries.
Adjustable disconnect voltage and time.
125A continuous, 600A cranking current contactor.
Fully sealed, IP66, ignition-protected contactor.
Contactor rated for under the hood and marine installations.
Manual battery reset switch.
FLEXIBLE: Adjustable voltage and timer settings support different battery chemistries, starting or deep cycle batteries, and large transient loads (intermittent large power draws that should not activate battery protection).
THOUGHTFUL ENGINEERING: Reset from a manual switch (included) or from an ignition feed. Digital signal processing prevents incorrect activation from electrical noise and power spikes. Ignition inhibit prevents battery disconnection while the engine is running.
POWER EFFICIENT: Magnetically latching contactor only consumes power to change states. Ultra-low power consumption is less than 3 Ah per month.
POWERGUARD PRO: Advanced Protection For 1 To 2 Batteries Banks
Advanced dead battery protection for one or two battery banks.
Designed for 12V, 24V or mixed voltage systems.
Adjustable voltage and timer thresholds suit any application.
Generous eight inputs/outputs for alarms, interlocks, generator start and stop, ignition feed reset and emergency power disconnect.
Fully sealed IP66 contactors for marine and ignition protected installations.
Remote battery isolation and reset.
Optional windows software for datalogging and fully independent configuration.
ALL THE QUALITIES OF SMARTBANK LITE AND…
CLEVER: PowerGuard Pro has an operating mode which foils aggressive users from constantly resetting their dead battery protection. PowerGuard Pro can also be automatically reset from SmartBank Pro.
OPTIONAL SOFTWARE: Manually configure basic settings without a computer. Configure fully independent thresholds and access datalogging and diagnostic packages with Windows software.
