Veratron real-time battery monitor now an easy-to-install kit
Whether on the water, in an RV, riding the trail, or operating a piece of industrial equipment, a dead battery will ruin anyone’s day. Veratron’s new VL Flex Intelligent Battery Monitor Kit contains everything needed to deliver real-time battery health and status to the smallest dashboard. It combines two pioneering products, Veratron’s award-winning Intelligent Battery Sensor and its revolutionary VL Flex Instrument. All additional components needed for a fast and easy installation are included.
The innovative Intelligent Battery Sensor measures and reports voltage, current and temperature. It also originates additional critical data such as state of charge and overall battery health. The device works for either a single 12V lead, gel or AGM battery or a series of two 24V units.
Veratron’s 1.44″ round VL Flex Instrument is no ordinary gauge. Using the included remote button, it will scroll through the set pages to display a large numeric value and/or colored bar graph. The device is easily configured via Veratron’s Intelligent Battery Monitor mobile app for Android and iOS to show dual data sets; alarms can be preset for trigger thresholds. Built to IP67 standards with a PMMA lens, nine bezels are available to match virtually any dashboard décor.
Installing the VL Flex Intelligent Battery Monitor Kit is simple. The sealed Intelligent Battery Sensor clamps onto the negative pole terminal and is connected to the positive side through an integrated 3A fuse embedded into the included 19.6′ wiring harness. The system has a power consumption of less than 50mA.
With the optional Veratron stainless steel dip-pipe Liquid Level Sensor, it’s easy to expand the VL Flex Intelligent Battery Monitor Kit to also monitor fuel or water tank levels. Available in lengths from 5.9″ to 55″, it has a unique compensation chamber that delivers accurate, real-time measurements, even when the going gets rough.
Configuring the device with the app is simple. The sensor and gauge have built-in passive wireless antennas, so it only requires tapping the mobile device against the component to make an instant pairing connection. Then, users can easily set up parameters and warning thresholds. The VL Flex Intelligent Battery Monitor Kit costs $229.99 for the 12V model and $329.99 for the 24V version.
