Dual battery charging made easy! The 719 battery distribution cluster is the optimum battery management system for your triple outboard engined boat. The 719-100A combines six of BEP’s 701 battery switches and three 710-125A Voltage Sensitive Relays (VSR).
The 701 Battery Master Switch offers a number of unique features. The highlights being the contour lock system, allowing it to be locked together with other switches. The 701 also features a control knob which cannot be removed while in the On or Off position, however can be removed by switching to an counter-clockwise 45º position.
The 701 also features a removable rear cover, insulating the rear terminals against any short circuits and ensuring the switch meets ABYC requirements.
The 719 System includes dedicated battery switches for each bank and three 710-125A voltage sensitive relays (VSR). The VSR allows for two batteries to be charged at the same time. When the engine is started, and the start battery reaches 13.7 Volts, the relay closes, Combining the battery banks (start and house) and allowing them to be charged simultaneously.
When the engine is stopped and the voltage drops to 12.8 Volts, the relay will open separating the batteries.
This system eliminates the possibility of draining the wrong battery and protects sensitive electrical equipment powered from the house battery from harmful engine start up spikes.
The 719 cluster is designed for triple outboard systems giving combined charge from all three outboards into the house battery via the VSR’s.
