BEP 701 MD [Motorized Switches BEP-701MD]
The BEP 701 MD is a Motorised Battery Switch.
The Motorised Battery Switch (701- MD) has the same mechanism as the well proven701. The essential difference being the switching action has been motorised.
This permits switching of battery banks remotely. A typical installation is a key operated switch at the helm station and the motorised battery switch installed as close as practical to the battery bank. (Part No for key switch: 722-KS or any other standard On/Off switch). Apart from the convenience of such an installation, this arrangement permits much shorter cable runs to starter motors and other high current applications such as bow thrusters and inverters. As a result voltage drop and use of heavy cable has been kept to minimum.
The Motorised Battery Switch, (701-MD) has two modes of operation. Auto and Manual. There is a LED located on both the battery switch and key switch (722-KS), Indicating Battery Switch status.
The 701-MD moves from a state of “Auto Off” to “Auto On” when the remotely mounted switch is turned on. During the time that the battery switch is in “Auto On” mode, the “Auto On” LED is illuminated.
Auto operation of the Battery Switch is not possible whilst in manual mode. If auto operation is attempted, the LED will flash for 3 seconds then stop. Knob must be returned to “Auto Off” before normal auto operation can continue.
The automatic operation of the 701-MD battery switch can be overridden at any time by depressing the control knob and turning clockwise towards the “Man On” position or counter clockwise towards the “Man Off” position. During the time that the Battery switch is in “Man On“ mode, the “Man On” LED is Illuminated. Refer Fig 1 for reference.
