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

The M5512 Battery Equalizer from 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.
