Low Voltage Disconnect 16 Amp

These high performance low voltage disconnects increase battery life by preventing excessive battery discharge.

When the battery voltage is too low the control automatically switches the load off. When the battery voltage has recovered the control turns the load back on. In this way the battery is protected from excessive discharge. Intended for Thermo-electric generators on natural gas, not intended for renewable energy as the power draw is approximately 1 Watt when on. For renewable energy systems use a solid state voltage switch under our load controls page.

Tough Design - A rugged design sealed in an ABS case with epoxy. Operates continuously at +70C (+160F) at 16 Amps.

Easy to use - Momentary reset switch on the side turns on the load when pushed regardless of battery voltage. Adjustment on the back changes both set points up or down. The hysteresis is fixed during manufacturing, but other custom set points can be ordered.

Full 5-year warranty. Your satisfaction is always guaranteed!
