When the alternator or charger is off or a large load
causes the voltage to drop below the disconnect point the unit breaks
the common tie between the banks. This allows selective battery
discharge and prevents “dumping” of a higher-charged bank into a
lower-charged bank. The unit may also be activated to connect other
batteries through the key starter or a manual switch to provide an added
“boost” from the secondary battery whenever the starter is engaged and
the unit senses there is sufficient voltage in that battery to provide
For systems with more than two banks, an isolator must be
installed for each additional bank to provide the same isolation and
integration as described above.
• Enables charging of two separate banks without voltage drop, yet maintains 100% isolation at all other times. For systems of three banks or more, an additional unit must be installed for each additional bank
• Heavy duty silver-plated contactor, continuous duty rated to 100 amps
• Voltage sense circuit, epoxy encapsu- lated and heavy duty continuous rated solenoid are all designed for use in marine environments
• 12 volt model has ignition protection rating
• Easy three-wire hook up for two bank systems (BATT +, BATT +, GROUND)
• Terminal for optional wiring of remote light indicating when battery banks are integrated
• Optional internal connection can be wired though key starter or manual over ride switch, tying battery banks together for extra boost during engine start

The Battery Integrator is ideal for expanding the single charging output of an inverter/charger
to maintain both the house bank and an engine start bank, then to
isolate them during inverter function, so current is drawn from the
house bank only.
