With the successful release of the BEP™ battery distribution system, BEP saw the need for ready assembled clusters for different applications to make the installation within the battery area even easier. All clusters are completely bused and pre-wired internaly and are supplied with mounting fastenings along with easy to follow instructions. These include all connecting points clearly marked with ABC labels. All existing VSR enabled Battery Distribution Clusters now come standard with the new Digital Voltage Sensing relays. Replace suffix “-100A” with “-140A-DVSR(-B)”.
Single engine, two battery banksThe 714-140A-DVSR uses a dual sensing DVSR (710-140A). This system ensures you will always have a fully charged reserve battery. When the switch is in position one, it becomes the sensing battery for the VSR. Battery two, which is in isolation, will be charged via the VSR when the engine is running ensuring it is always fully charged. When the switch is in battery two position, this becomes the sensing battery and battery one is charged via the VSR. The fact that there is always a fully charged battery in reserve is a huge safety factor.
Please note: With the 714-140A-DVSR the electronic loads are run off the same battery as the engine starting battery.
VSR charging current: 150A, Battery switch rating: 275A
Single engine two dedicated battery banksAvailable as horizontal or vertical units. To be used in the following systems:1) Single outboard dual battery bank2) Single alternator dual battery bank3) Twin alternator dual battery bank
Single engine, two battery banksAn ideal replacement for a battery selector switch. Just remove selector switch and connect existing wires to a 716 cluster, no extra wires are required for a fully automatic battery management system. No more flat start batteries. Electronics protection from harmful engine start spikes. The 716 cluster is for use on charging systems up to 150A.To be used in the following systems:1. Single outboard dual battery bank.2. Single alternator inboard engine dual battery bank.The 716 cluster replaces battery isolator systems.
Dimension guide: Clusters are made from uniformly square switches, each side 2.7” (69 mm)VSR charging current: 150A, Battery switch rating: 275A
Twin engine, two banksThe 715-S allows the house loads to be switched between port and starboard batteries. The selector switch can also be used to parallel the batteries when in both positions.
Twin engine, three banksThe 718-140A-DVSR is designed for twin inboard systems when it is not practical to have both engine alternators in parallel because of the types of regulators used on these alternators. The house battery is charged from the port engine when the VSR is engaged. See table on previous page for specifications.VSR charging current: 150A, Battery switch rating: 275A
Twin engine, three banksThis system is designed for twin engine installations. It will allow the port engine to charge the port start battery and the house battery when the VSR is engaged. It will also allow the starboard engine to charge the starboard start battery and the house battery when the starboard VSR is engaged, giving a combined charge from two engines into the house battery until the voltage regulators on both engines control the charge. It will also allow the house battery to be charged if steaming on one engine. See table on previous page for specifications.VSR charging current: 150A, Battery switch rating: 275A
Triple engine, four banksThis system is designed for triple engine installations. Once again using multiple VSR’s off each start battery giving combined charge from all 3 engines into the house battery via VSRs. See table on previous page for specifications.VSR charging current: 150A, Battery switch rating: 275A
