Unity Low Voltage Monitor

Newmar’s Powering the Network offers Unity Rectifiers. Telecom Hot Swap Rackmount Rectifier with 3-24 amps per system and 24-48 VDC.

Digital Battery Monitor and Alarm with Low Voltage Disconnect Integrates
Rack Mount Rectifiers into a Fully Functional Power System.

This 1RU assembly contains numerous DC control and monitoring features that integrate power and distribution components into a highly functional system. Built in features include: low voltage disconnect, digital monitor of voltage and amperage, battery disconnect breaker, and alarm contacts. The digital display monitors bus voltage, battery voltage, system output current, and low voltage connect/disconnect set points. Alarm contacts actuate on low voltage and battery disconnect conditions. Rear panel bus bars provide ample terminal landings for easy integration with rack mount rectifiers, distribution panels and batteries.
