Bogart Engineering BMS-TM-A-500 Battery Management System With TM-2030A, SC-2030 & 500A Shunt
Bogart Battery Management System With TM-2030A & 500A Shunt
The Bogart Engineering BMS-TM-A-500 battery management system comes with everything you need to install the TM-2030A battery monitor and the SC-2030 charge controller for systems that require a 500 Amp shunt.
The TM 2030 is intended to help maintain battery systems for 12V to 48V deep cycle batteries, such as ones found in RV's or off grid homes, which are regularly charged and discharged. It measures the rate of energy going in or out of your batteries so you can check your charging systems and see how much energy each of your appliances use. This is a big help when you're trying to conserve energy. The Trimetric will help you keep track of how charged or discharged your batteries are. It will let you discover if your charging systems are charging to the proper voltage, which is important for maximizing your battery life. The monitor will also tell you the number of days since the main battery system was fully charged, so if it hasn't been charged recently you can perform extra charging if necessary to help maintain the capacity of your batteries. The TM-2030 also can measure the voltage only of a second battery set, such as the starting battery, or solar voltage input to a charge controller.
The SC-2030 is a PWM charger that works in tandem with the new TM-2030 TriMetric battery monitor. In constant communication with the TriMetric, the charger adjusts its charging current based on real-time battery information. The SC-2030 is designed for use with a 12V panel (36 cells) and a 12V battery, or a 24V panel (72 cells) and a 24V battery with efficiency comparable to that of MPPT charge controllers, but without the high cost of MPPT. The charger can handle solar currents up to 30A, and is ideally suited for RV and other small off-grid applications. The SC-2030 works optimally with a TM-2030 monitor, or can also work on its own with reduced performance.
One distinguishing feature is the ability to program the amount of excess amp-hour overcharge, as recommended by US Battery, Trojan, and other major battery manufacturers. A four-stage charging algorithm optimizes both battery life and charge-discharge cycle depth.
