Voltage Sensitive Relay (VSR) with cable kit
Voltage sensitive relay with cable kit for camper and boat
The original tigerexped 12V cut-off relay for campers, mobile homes or other travel vehicles automatically connects the second battery / on-board battery for charging with the alternator while driving.
The relay measures the voltage and does not close until the starter battery is fully charged. Switching through to charge the aux battery takes place as soon as the starter battery has a voltage of 13.3 volts.
No starter battery discharging
The connection between the starter battery and the auxiliary battery is automatically disconnected when the engine is not running in order to prevent the starter battery from discharging when consumers are switched on in the camper.
No voltage drop
Compared to diode distributors or the charging of the motorhome on-board battery via MosFET, there is no voltage drop with this VSR relay, which could lead to the batteries not being fully charged (final charge voltage is not reached) or can no longer be charged at all if the on-board network voltage drops further due to consumers being switched on.
An LED in the robust, fiberglass-reinforced nylon housing indicates when the relay has switched through.
Remote status LED
Since the relay is often located at installation locations that do not allow a control view of the status LED while driving, the tigerexped VSR relay offers the option to connect an remote LED. This can be installed in the driver's field of vision and shows at any time whether the relay has switched through (external status LED is not included in the scope of delivery).
Flexible installation possible
The VSR relay allows different types of installation. It can be surface or panel mounted.
tigerexped Troubleshooting: Usually an relay consumes a small amount of current in standby.
Our original tigerexped VSR relay offers you the possibility of really not consumpting any electricity to avoid unwanted battery discharge during winter periods or other long periods of inactivity.
For this purpose, the power supply of the relay can be supplied via an additional switch or ignition plus.
