An adjustable low-voltage indicator warns of the impending power outage. The low-voltage signal is externally available, allowing computers to monitor the condition and perform a graceful shutdown. The low-voltage signal can also be used for triggering a variety of low-voltage warning systems.
The LVD1 has an on-board On/Off switch and an on-board Auto-on/Manual-on switch for both unattended and attended operation. It can control a 12V load of up to 15 Amps. The LVD1 is perfect for controlling solar-powered computer systems, radio repeaters and WiFi systems. With a simple extension circuit the LVD1 output logic can be inverted, allowing it to be used for automatically starting generators and AC-operated battery chargers.
An external source of 12V DC power is required, suitable power sources include a solar-charged battery or an automotive/marine electrical power system. The LVD1 is designed to operate in conjunction with the CirKits SCC3 solar charge controller, a 12V rechargeable battery and a photovoltaic (PV) panel.
Controls include an on-board Off/On switch and on-board Auto-on/Manual-on switch. Indicators include a red Load-on LED, an amber Low Voltage Detection LED and two green Calibration LEDs which can be jumper-disabled for saving power.
