SenDEC, a manufacturer of digital monitoring and control devices, has introduced two new versions of its Dual Gauge battery meter. Both versions are variations on the company's battery discharge indicator and hour meter dual gauge for industrial battery monitoring. The new meter is designed to prevent deep battery discharge and improve battery life by preventing the battery from dropping below a specified state of charge.
Both the Lockout and the Lift Lockout versions prevent the operator from continuing to use the equipment once the battery reaches an OEM-specified state of charge. The Lockout gauge, which is designed specifically with material handling equipment in mind, uses an internal relay to shut down the battery when it reaches discharge level. The Lift Lockout version will allow a lift truck (or other lift equipment) to cycle down to the bottom of its range before lock out of the battery. This allows personnel and materials to return to ground level safely before the equipment is shut down for charging.
