710-125A (Single Sense)
BEP’s unique VSR. Modern charging systems must be able to safely charge two or more different types of batteries from one engine. Now, thanks to BEP’s unique VSR (Voltage Sensitive Relay) boat/4wd owners can enjoy the benefits of fully charged engine starting batteries and deep cycle house batteries with one easy to install charging system.
The Voltage Sensitive Relay (VSR) allows two batteries to be charged at the same time. When the engine is started and the start battery reaches 13.7 volts, the VSR engages, allowing two battery banks (start and house) to be charged simultaneously. When the voltage drops below 12.8 volts (eg the engine is stopped), the VSR disengages, separating the batteries. This system eliminates the possibility of draining the start battery and protects sensitive electronic equipment powered from the house battery from harmful engine start up spikes.
Advantages of fitting a VSR over conventional charge (diode isolators)
• Easy 3 wire connection at the battery. No need to bypass existing alternator wiring.
• VSRs have no volt drop. Conventional diode isolators incur a minimum of 0.6 volt drop.
• Compact size - No large heat sink
• Cost effective solution
• 69L x 69W x 50H mm
• 2.7L x 2.7W x 2H inches
