How Battery Isolator Works in Your Vehicles - : December 17, 2013 12:36 am An automotive electrical system produces enough electrical power for an automobile to run the ignition system, charge the battery again and supply power for electronic devices inside the vehicle. Some vehicles take advantage of this extra electrical capacity to sustain a 2nd on-board battery.
Typically a vehicle with more than one battery will include a battery isolator in the set up. A battery isolator separates the batteries from one another in a way that allows the charging source to charge them in a designated order. This isolator will not only manage the charging sequence order but also separates (isolates) the batteries from discharging each other if and when the charging source is not producing adequate power. The TRUE dual battery isolator system is not linked to the vehicle’s alternator or its ignition but instead relies on “smart circuitry” which senses the voltage available to determine when to connect or isolate the batteries. A Better Choice than the Polaris Dual Battery Kit! - : December 22, 2013 3:19 am At our request TRUE has began production on a dual battery kit to compare with the Polaris Dual Battery Kit that will allow you the consumer to put a dual battery system in any number of different ORV situations.
Primarily it is designed to compete or replace the Polaris Ranger Dual Battery Kit that sells for anywhere from $109.00 to $230.00. This kit is universal in application and can be used on nearly every ATV or UTV on the market and because of the use of a full 140 amp SBI it can also be used in marine and 4WD applications. Anywhere your two batteries will be in close proximity to one another. The Following Applications Are only a partial list. Yamaha dual battery kit RZR dual battery kit Rhino dual battery kit Yamaha dual battery kit Suzuki dual battery kit Honda dual battery kit Kubota dual battery kit John Deere dual battery kit KTM dual battery kit Kawasaki dual battery kit UTV dual battery kitBombardier dual battery kitHusqvarna dual battery kit.
How to wire the Dual Battery Isolator - : December 21, 2013 3:50 am The isolator from www.dfna.info is the simplest of all isolators to install. The “dual sensing” feature of this battery isolator makes it impossible to install backwards. Wiring is accomplished by: Connect a cable from the positive terminal of the primary battery by removing one of the nuts of the threaded studs on the back of the isolator. Apply cable, replace nut and tighten securely.Then connect a second cable from the isolator’s remaining threaded stud to the positive terminal of the second battery.The isolator’s black ground lead must then be connected to a common ground shared by all batteries. The isolators provided on dfna.info are voltage sensitive relays with smart technology that makes them simple in application but provide more efficient operation through elimination of the large diodes in other isolators.

Auto Detection. Underground Wire Break Locator | Dog Fence Wire Break Locator : Free Priority Mail shipping!!! I work with invisble type fencing for dogs and have found this “null” type locator to be extremely effective in locating wire breaks and faults in these underground systems. This simple system works well for tracking wires underground and behind walls.tag: underground wire break locator, boundary wire break locator, underground dog fence wire break locator Proven application in low voltage lighting, irrigation, pet containment, robotic mower systems and other non-visible wire tracking. However it does not allow for pinpoint wire identification in pairs or multi conductor type cables. The Underground Wire Break Locator is designed to locate the path of non-energized wires behind walls and underground. This underground wire break locator is made in Asia and although it functions in the same manner as the commercial units it is a consumer level product and therefor not as durrable as commercial units.

By including two 36mm waterproof/shockproof digital LED volt meters to the kit you can keep real-time track of what’s happening with your charge status on each individual battery. Conveniently TrueAm has included one blue and one green for easy discrimination between batteries.
The meters can mount anywhere you have flat surface that can be drilled with a 29mm (1-1/8”+) hole for each meter. They connect with a standard ¼” blade connector. Your mounting surface will need to be a maximum ¼” thick or you will need the optional faceplate or mounting tent. True UTV dual Battery Connect & Monitor Kit.

B. True Smart Battery Isolator (SBI) | 12 Volt Battery Isolator | Relay or Switch : A SBI is the ultra-simple and most technologically advanced method of automatic battery isolation system. These units can be installed between batteries with a common ground to automatically control the charging process to the batteries but continue to provide isolation of them when a charging source is unavailable. The small size and rugged construction of these units allow for quick simple installation for even the most novice Driver.
To make things even better this unit is “Dual Sensing” which senses the charge of both batteries. If either battery is receiving a charge, e.g. a battery charger is connected to the auxiliary battery; the SBI dual battery system will engage and charge both batteries. The advanced technology always insures that the first battery is fully charged (13.3v) before connection is made to the second battery. This prevents problems that may result from your charging source being too low in amps to charge all batteries as once. Read the testimonials CLICK HERE!!!
