Battery equalizer keeps 12 V batteries in a 24VPDC system balanced

The M5512 Battery Equalizer from Milpower Source keeps two 12 V batteries in a 24 VDC system balanced, allows 12 V loading of up to 100 Amp average with much higher peak (surge) loading (limited only by the battery?s capacity), and offers efficiency of 96 percent (typical) of less th...

The M5512 Battery Equalizer from Milpower Source keeps two 12 V batteries in a 24 VDC system balanced, allows 12 V loading of up to 100 Amp average with much higher peak (surge) loading (limited only by the battery’s capacity), and offers efficiency of 96 percent (typical) of less than 55 W dissipation at full load. The equalizer was designed for military applications, particularly those installed in an engine compartment.

Features for the M5512 Battery Equalizer include normal operating temperatures ranging between -40 °C and +100 °C, and the ability to handle nonoperating temperatures between -54 °C and +110 °C. THE M5512 comes with conformal coating to protect electronic circuits from harsh environments, in compliance with MIL-I-46058C and IPC-CC-830 standards. It is also fully compliant with MIL-STD-461F, MIL-STD-810G/F, and MIL-STD-1275A/B/C/D/E electromagnetic and environmental standards.
