Product DescriptionThe Blue Sea automatically manages the charging of two large battery banks and allows the paralleling of battery banks for emergency starting. 500A continuous rating supports high-output alternators. Magnetic Latch ACR draws very low current (<40mA to monitor terminal voltage) in the "ON" or "OFF" states, and draws moderate current for very short time when changing state. Senses charge on both battery banks. Start Isolation can be configured for temporary isolation of House loads from Engine circuit during engine cranking to protect sensitive electronics. Engine Isolation can be configured for isolation of two engines while both are running to protect engine electronics and maximize alternator output. LED output to remotely indicate when batteries are combined, isolated, in voltage lockout, or in Start or Engine isolation. Label recesses for circuit identification. Includes ML-Series Remote Control Contura Switch.
