Trimetric

System Monitor

The TriMetric battery monitor is designed to assist in battery care, conservation and system maintenance of battery powered systems that use storage batteries with system voltage from 12-48 volts.
It provides the user with information on battery “volts”, “amps” and “amp-hours” and “battery percent full”, based on measuring the amp-hours removed from the battery system.

Reliability, accuracy and simplicity are key product objectives. The TriMetric< requires an external

TM2030

A shunt located near the batteries to measure “amps” and “amp-hours”. The meter readout may be located hundreds of feet away from batteries and is usually connected to the shunt with a 5 wire cable.

We have a system that uses the Trimetric to display the amps coming from the wind and/or solar, using a shunt in the generator circuit(s).  Call for custom build.

Additional features:

New with the TM-2030:Audible low battery alarm, based on volts and % full. May be silenced.● Measures days since charged:  Shows how many days have elapsed since batteries were last fully charged. Batteries can lose ability to hold charge if this becomes too long.● Shows days since equalized: A reminder to equalize at appropriate time if you do manual equalizations.

New with the TM-2030: Displays replaced percentage of charge, compared to most recent discharge–Many battery company experts are now recommending that when recharging, 110-120% of recently withdrawn energy should be replaced for wet cell Lead acid batteries to prevent loss of capacity—and 104-108% for AGM types. This new function makes it easy to know if they have been sufficiently charged.

● Good lightning protection.

● Easy to read display–easy to darken.

● Defaults to “Level 1” for most users to keep operation simple. Choose Level 2 or 3 for more technical users.

● Logged data functions: You may not need this, but a technician trying to diagnose what is wrong will find these very helpful:

Data for each of last five charge/discharge cycles:

● Length of the cycle.     ● How long ago the cycle ended.     ● Lowest % full reading

● Lowest battery voltage.     ● Cycle charge efficiency (percent)

Data for each of the last five days.

● Highest voltage that day.     ● Lowest charging current.            ● Total percentage overcharge for that day.

● Sizes: smaller (RV) is 3 x 5-1/4 x 1-3/8 inches deep. Larger (A) is 4-1/2 x 4 -3/4 x 1-1/4 inches deep.

● Requires one of two shunts: 500A/50mV shunt allows amp measurements from 0.1-over 400 Amps. 100A/100mV shunt allows amp measurements from 0.01- over 70 Amps. Larger shunts allow higher current limits.
