SmartFuse: Battery Watch + Fuse + Main Switch

The Smartfuse is a battery guard + fuse which can detect under voltage, over voltage, over load and then disconnect the circuit. The voltage- and current values are programmable. The Smartfuse can also be used with a remote switch as a Main Switch. After shutdown the Smartfuse will let charge current through to the battery. Only when an “on” voltage has been reached, it is possible to get again current/power from the battery. Instead of three different individual products, you only need no.1 Smartfuse .No danger of explosion by sparkless switching.
