TBS TACR-160 Automatic charging relay 12V/24V

In stock

Automatic charging relay 12V/24V 160A DC.

SKU: 5075200

In a boat or vehicle with two battery banks, it is useful to be able to charge both banks while underway. The TBS TACR-160 allows two battery banks to be charged from a single source, such as an alternator, but keep batteries isolated when not charging. This is to avoid that one battery bank discharges the other. Additionally, if one battery bank becomes depleted anyway, there will be a charged bank available for emergency starting.

Besides the main functionality of automatic battery combining or separation, the TACR-160 can also act as a remote controlled DC switch or only allowing a load to be connected to the battery when it is being charged.

A remote switch can also be used to temporarily combine the auxiliary battery with the starter battery, in order to increase the available power to start an engine.

The TBS TACR-160 is capable of switching up to 160A and is compatible with 12V and 24V systems (auto-detect).
