To conclude BEP Marine’s Version 8 720 motorised battery switch development, we are pleased to announce the release of the new 720-MDO-EP, to accompany the recent launch of Version 8 720-MDVSO and 720-MDO models. The 720-MDO-EP Version 8 will begin shipping soon (January/February 2013) and replaces the previous model 720-MDO-EP. Note the same part number is used for both versions of this emergency parallel switch.
This 720-MDO-EP Version 8 offers simplified installation compared to its predecessor. Its connection cable has 3 wire cores terminated into the supplied Wago plug, with internal connections pre-wired for the Printed Circuit Board/Motor power supplies. The previous version 720-MDO-EP had 2 additional wires that needed to be connected externally for the PCB/Motor supplies, and was supplied without the Wago plug. Switch functionality remains the same.
The 720-MDO-EP (Emergency Parallel Switch) provides remotely activated, high current, emergency parallel connection of two battery banks, for a 10 minute period following activation of the remote switch. The motorised switch allows the remote switch to be placed in a location convenient to the operator, with the battery switch positioned to minimise voltage drop, saving weight and installation cost.
Designed and constructed for longevity in the marine environment with tinned copper conductors, stainless steel nuts and high temperature, fibre reinforced plastics. The units are ignition protected, provide On/Off switching operation, and may be recessed or surface mounted. The 720-MDO-EP features digital circuitry and optical sensor positioning that automatically senses 12V or 24V input, is extremely accurate, and offers low power consumption.
