The SureStart Compact Magnum 250 amp low voltage disconnect (LVD), is an electronically sensing battery level and conserving starting power. The LVD prolongs battery life by preventing damage and eliminating dead battery service calls and lost time. The module is ideal for protecting onboard electronics and other equipment used by truck fleets, recreational vehicles, utility trucks, and automobiles.
This LVD is compact in size and fits within a small 5 x 5 x 3 in. space. It automatically detects if the system is 12 V or 24 V and disconnects when battery voltage falls below an established threshold, reconnecting when the battery is recharged. No action is required by the vehicle operator to protect the batteries.
The LVD can be mounted in harsh environments and is sealed to IP67 standards, featuring easy to connect sealed Deutsch-type connectors. Offering solid-state reliability and resistance to vibration, it creates less electrical noise and interference, and eliminates spikes. Metric tinplated copper terminals add to its reliability.
