The Sure Power Battery Separator is designed for use in multi-battery applications as a excessive loading while allowing auxiliary batteries to be charged. The Sure Power Battery Separator has two basic operational characteristics.
Unidirectional : This means that the charge current only goes in a single (Uni) direction; from the "Main Battery" to the "Auxilary Battery". Or more simply, the first battery to be charged, to the second battery.
Voltage : 24 Volts Amperage : 100 Amps Approx. Item Weight : 1 Pound

ENGINE START ASSIST :
When the starter is activated the Battery Separator compares the voltage of both battery banks. If the chassis' battery is lower the the auxiliary battery bank, the Battery Separator will engage, allowing the auxiliary battery bank to aid in vehicle starting. The start signal must be at least three volts for this operation to occur.
PROTECTS CHARGING SYSTEM :
Once the engine has started, the 1318 monitors only the main battery and charges the auxiliary battery if the main battery is above the connect threshold. The connect threshold is set to a nominal voltage of 26.8V, which would only be reached when the charging system is operational. This will cause the relay to only close when the charging system is operational, charging both banks of batteries. The disconnect voltage is set to a nominal 25.7V, which is near the full charge resting voltage of the batteries. This will cause the relay to be opened shortly after the engine is stopped, attempting to preserve 100% of the starting battery capacity for engine cranking.
WHY BUY A SURE POWER BATTERY SEPARATOR?
Connects to primary battery, auxiliary battery and ground. Absolutely no system modifications are necessary.
PRIORITIZED BATTERY CHARGING
The Battery Separator waits until the battery connected to the active charging source reaches approximately 26.8 Volts before paralleling and charging the remaining batteries. The system disconnects at approximately 25.7 Volts.
MULTIPLE BATTERY CHARGING
The battery separator allows multiple batteries to be charged from one charging source (usually, but not necessarily, an alternator). When the batteries are not being charged, the Battery Separator separates or isolates the batteries.
START ASSIST FEATURE
An optional input from the key switch or a manual switch will program the Battery Separator to parallel the batteries during starting. This feature will only engage if the auxiliary battery has sufficient power available to assist in starting.
PREVENTS CHARGE SYSTEM OVERLOAD
If the current requirements are greater then the charging source can produce, the Battery Separator will automatically separate the batteries, thus directing all available charge current to the battery directly connected to the charging source. The system will then reset and re-attempt charging the auxiliary battery. A time delay prevents false switching.
