New battery switch design provides simple, compact battery management

Menomonee Falls, Wisc. (February 20, 2019)--  Building on their commitment to meaningful innovation, Blue Sea Systems is proud to announce the release of the Terminal Mount Battery Disconnect Switch.

 

These simple, compact, and affordable battery switches provide a perfect solution for battery management on smaller travel trailers and fifth wheels. With 150A continuous rating, they are powerful enough to control the master power on smaller vehicles.

“We designed the new Battery Terminal Mount Switch with safety and convenience in mind for the RV family”, said Danny Ascencio-Hall, Blue Sea Systems product manager.  “This is the first battery terminal mount switch that is ignition protected so it is safe to use around propane lockers and under the hood. It will not spark like the old knife style switches and you aren’t touching an electrified piece of brass every time you turn off your RV.” 

 

The compact design mounts directly to the battery terminal and can be contained within the battery box for easy access.  In addition, it has an IP 54 water resistant splash rating so it can also be used on battery boxes positioned outside on the trailer tongue.

 

The battery mount switch is available in two versions: Post mount and Stud mount. The post mount is built with a clamp design and mounts directly to the negative battery post. The stud mount is built with a 3/8” mounting hole for either positive or negative terminal stud mounting. The Stud mount includes two insulating boots.  They both have a tin-plated brass bus for increased conductivity and corrosion resistance. They are ignition protected and safe to install in gasoline engine compartments.
