Merlin SmartGuage Advanced Battery Monitor
While there are many advanced battery monitors available that count ampere hours to display state of charge (by using a current measuring shunt), one drawback can be their accuracy over extended time periods. If you are prepared to periodically re-synchronise your monitor, then there are other options. If however, your application is such that manual re-synchronisation is not possible or practical, Merlin SmartGauge is the ideal solution.
Designed by Merlin's R&D team, the unit uses an advanced computer algorithm to display voltage on 2 battery banks and state of charge on 1 battery bank using just two or three wires. In addition to being simple to install, Smart Gauge is also very easy to operate - perfect if the individual using the device is not familiar with battery technology. The algorithm used within the unit self compensates for the changes in a battery's charge efficiency factor (health) over time, ensuring that the unit remains accurate throughout the life of the installation.
SmartGauge is suitable for both 12 volt and 24 volt electrical systems, provides user settable alarms to indicate both high and low voltages and low capacity. These alarms can be utilised to operate external relays for purposes such as automatic generator starting. SmartGauge can also be upgraded to control its own intelligent split charging system - see SmartBank Advanced.
