Sure Power: Battery Equalizer (12V∼24V) 25 Amp
Sure Power Battery Equalizer | 12/24 Volt | 25 Amps
12 Volt to 24 Volt ∼ 25 Amp w/ Switched Output
This Sure Power Equalizer is designed to provide 12V to 24V power conversion for heavy-duty applications. This Equalizer provides a fixed output to power 24V loads directly from a 12V source.
The Equalizer can withstand load dump, reverse battery, short circuit, and over-temperature without damage to the unit. The switched output is implemented using a MOSFET transistor. Due to the MOSFET body diode, the switched output should never be connected to a battery or voltage source.
Protection circuits include an over voltage monitor for input voltage and over temperature monitor attached to the PCB near the internal FET's. Both monitors can shut the Equalizer off until the corresponding out of range condition is corrected.
The unit utilizes three channel shaped bus bars for making power connections. Each bus bar is equipped with an M8 hex head bolt. The bolt head is captured within the channel and the channel prevents rotation of the head, when tightening the nut. The control connections are made via 1/4" male tabs.
DESCRIPTION OF FEATURES
- Under and Over Voltage Protection
- Reverse Voltage Protection
- Voltage Transient Protection
- Over load and Short Circuit Protection
- Thermal Overload Shutdown
- Equalization Status Indicator
- Sealed from the Elements
- Ignition Turn On
Short circuit and current limiting protection is supplied by monitoring the output current. Detection of a short circuit or overload turns the output off. The unit then cycles the output on every 1.5 seconds to determine if the short circuit has been removed. Upon removal of this condition the output voltage will return to its normal state.
Thermal protection is provided by monitoring the heatsink temperature. Detection of extreme temperature shuts the unit off. When the heatsink cools approximately 15C the unit will automatically turn back on.
Loss of ground Protected : Ensures no damage to the unit.
Unit is protected against all mis-wiring conditions with the exception of the condition where: Unit GND is connected to system +12V, Unit +12V is connected to system +24V, Unit +24V is connected to GND, and Unit IGN is connected to system +24V.
STATUS INDICATOR : An LED status indicator is provided to denote when the unit is producing current. As the batteries become equalized the equalizer current will approach 0 amps, and the LED indicator will diminish in intensity and eventually go dark. In Equalizers, as the output current approaches zero the LED will go dark.
