prolongs battery life in vehicles
May 10, 2010 9:20 AM
Cole Hersee introduces its SureStart Low Voltage Disconnect (LVD) switch 48513. The SureStart switch electronically senses battery voltage and conserves starting power by disconnecting non-critical loads, prolonging battery life by preventing battery damage due to excessive discharge.
This switch is ideal for utility and delivery vehicles, as well as vehicles with ancillary on-board equipment, such as snowplows, hoists, pumps, and floodlights, as well as in-cab amenities such as air-conditioning. When battery drain occurs, there are substantial costs associated with downtime, vehicle recovery, and battery damage due to overdischarge. These costs can be eliminated when a SureStart LVD switch is used.
The switch has a rating of 100 amps at 12- or 24-volt DC. Its service life exceeds 1,000,000 on/off cycles, and it also features a manual override that allows users to connect or disconnect the switch when needed—regardless of voltage.
The SureStart LVD switch has a compact size (4.5" x 4" x 4.27") that makes it easy to install in a new or old vehicle. Unlike other voltage monitoring devices, the SureStart LVD switch does not require a separate solenoid to control high current, increasing reliability and simplifying installation. This switch provides resistance to moisture, salt spray, vibration, and shock.
