The REDARC 'BCDC1240-LV & Gauge Value Pack' comes with a REDARC dual voltage gauge (G52-VVA) and a BCDC1240-LV.
This Value Pack offers a complete power management and monitoring solution designed to meet the demands of 4WD, caravan, recreational and commercial vehicles.
If visual monitoring of your 12 Volt battery setup is required, this pack represents great value with a 10% discount on the purchase of both products separately.
The BCDC1240-LV is a 12V 40A In-vehicle Battery Charger featuring technology designed to charge your batteries to 100%, regardless of their type or size. By providing a unique charging profile for each specific battery type, the BCDC1240-LV In-Vehicle Battery Charger is able to achieve and maintain an optimal charge in your auxiliary battery, at all times. It is designed to operate with variable voltage alternators.
The BCDC1240-LV In-vehicle Battery Charger also features a Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) solar regulator, allowing you to deliver the maximum amount of power from your solar panels to your auxiliary battery.
- Multi-Stage DC-DC Battery Charger
- MPPT Solar Regulator
- Start Battery Isolator
- Fully sealed
- Super quiet operation
- Charges AGM, Gel, Calcium content, VRLA and Standard Lead Acid batteries
Dual Voltage 52mm Gauge
The REDARC 52mm dual voltage gauge is ideal for battery systems mounted in 4WD's, Campers, Caravans, Motorhomes and other similar vehicle applications. The LCD/ LED display allows you to monitor the charging performance of both your main and auxiliary batteries.
In the event of an alternator or system failure, the voltage reading on the gauge will be low and drop as the battery discharges. In the event of an overcharge condition, the voltage reading will climb above its normal zone. The G52-VVA gauge also has pre-set alert levels (<11V and >16V) to notify you of these situations by changing the gauge backlight colour to either amber or red, and initiate an audible beep when the vehicle's ignition is on.
The G52-VVA gauge is also equipped with an optional 100A rated current display that monitors the amount of current to or from your main or auxiliary battery. This device can be fitted around the earth connection of the main or auxiliary battery. You will need to purchase the REDARC Hall effect current sensor (GS-AMPS) to equip the gauge with this function.
When extra protection is required, the G52-VVA is the perfect accessory for a REDARC dual battery isolator (SBI12) or in-vehicle battery charger (BCDC range) where 12 volt batteries are installed. It’s a visual monitor of product performance and battery health.
The G52-VVA gauge diameter requires a 52mm hole for mounting. REDARC offer a range of mounting solutions including a 2” black plastic mounting cup (GH-CUP) and one (GH-MP1), two (GH-MP2) and three (GH-MP3) hole gauge mounting panels. Radio inserts are also available for the Toyota Hilux (GH-RI05).
The REDARC 24 to 12 volt adaptor (GA-2412V) can be used to connect this gauge to a vehicle with a 24 volt ignition and lighting supply, however only a 12 volt battery can be monitored.
- Satin Chrome Bezel
- 13 Selectable Backlight Colours
- Multiple alert levels with amber or red backlight and audible beep - Alerts when Voltage drops below 11V or climbs above 16V.
- Display illuminates when park lights are turned on so you can check battery voltages and discharge or charge current without turning on the ignition.
- If fitting more than one REDARC gauge, a communications link can be connected between the gauges to change the backlight colour of all at once.
Enhanced Lighting Controller (Not Included)
REDARC recommends the purchase of an Enhanced Lighting Controller (GA-ELC) with this gauge. The GA-ELC is designed to enhance the lighting of your REDARC gauges as only one required for a set. It is to be used when you do not have a dimming circuit to connect your gauge to or the dimming circuit in your vehicle does not dim the REDARC gauge to your liking.
The GA-ELC also allows you to program nighttime brightness and colour of your REDARC gauges, including dimming if connected to a dash dimmer. Once programmed your gauges will change colour when turning on your park lights and back to a daylight colour when you turn them off. The GA-ELC is also 24 volt capable.
