Baxters release 2nd Generation DPS Electronic Battery Master Switch
Upgraded Australian designed safety switch is now best-in-class and IP69K rated.
The second generation of Baxters DPS series Electronic Battery Master switch has been designed from the ground up to provide the highest level of safety achievable. It is manufactured to meet and exceed Australian ADR standards, European EC and EX requirements and now includes additional features for the global market. Along with the high level of safety achieved, the electrical design of the switch is efficient and it will not negatively impact the start or charge circuits of the application.
The original Baxters DPS series Electronic Battery Master switch offered may features as standard in the one device. The switch is designed to isolate a vehicles batteries and electrical circuits to render it safe and inoperable in many conditions. This can be done manually at the switch or via an optional hard wired remote mounted control (for instance to prevent theft, misuse or in the event of an electrical short circuit) or automatically, such as in the case of a vehicle rollover when a rollover devise is connected. The Baxters DPS series Electronic Battery Master switch is fitted OE to Mack and Volvo trucks, and has been the most commonly fitted battery master switch to dangerous goods vehicles for the past 15 years.
The launch of the second generation Baxters DPS series Electronic Battery Master switch includes additional enhancements creating a safer environment for all applications. It has an upgraded IP69K rated enclosure, high visibility red housing, colour identifiable terminals for ease of installation, luminous ON/OFF/ROLLOVER push button switches and lockable cover to prevent access to the controls at the switch. It’s available in 12 and 24 volts variants, and the common mounting footprint means it is an easy drop in replacement for an existing switch.
When activated, the Baxters DPS series Electronic Battery Master switch will step through a delayed ECM shutdown to prevent re programming or data corruption. It also has a programmable low battery voltage disconnect function adding to the vehicles battery longevity.
