Low-Voltage Disconnect Switch Prolongs Vehicle Battery Life

The 48513 SureStart Low-Voltage Disconnect (LVD) Switch electronically senses battery voltage and conserves starting power by disconnecting non-critical loads, which prolongs battery life by preventing battery damage due to excessive loading. The switch is rated at 100 A at 12 or 24 V dc, and its service life exceeds 1 million on-off cycles. The switch has a manual override that allows users to connect of disconnect the device as needed, regardless of voltage. The device measures only 4.5 by 4 by 4.27 mm, which makes it easy to install. Unlike many voltage-monitoring devices, the SureStart LVD does not require a separate solenoid to control high current, increasing reliability and simplifying installation. The switch’s resistance to moisture, salt spray, vibration, and shock make it suitable for use in any vehicle or environment. COLE HERSEE CO., Boston, MA. (617) 268-2100.
