Sterling Power Pro Latch Relay - 12/24v 160A PN: LR160

The Pro Latch R is not a conventional relay. A conventional 80A / 12V relay would consume 450mA 'staying on'. This is fine when using a 70A alternator. However, when using a 60W solar cell on a typical cloudy day the output is around 400mA, the conventional relay therefore renders the solar cell useless.

The Pro Latch R is designed to 'lock into position' and will not consume power by 'staying on.' The only current drawn is to run the internal software which amounts to about 0.5mA (900x more efficient). This makes the ideal for use with solar cells or wind power, where every little counts

The Pro Latch R can be set to trigger 'on' and 'off' at certain voltages according to the user's need. 'On' voltages can be set from 10.7V - 14.8V and the 'off' voltages from 10.4V - 14.5V. There are also factory preset voltage trigger points which are suitable for 95% of applications.

Charging mode (voltage sensitive relays) - when the ProLatch R is installed between 2 batteries (e.g. engine starter and auxiliary) it has either side activation (i.e. whichever side reaches the trigger voltage first will activate the relay). This is perfect at directing charge, previously aimed at the auxiliary (from solar reg / wind turbine), towards a depleted starter battery.

 

Battery protection mode - The ProLatch R prevents the over charging or over discharging of batteries. In order to prevent over charging, the relay disengages at a preset voltage or a voltage you specify (e.g. 14.4V).Therefore the battery will disconnect from the charging source. Conversely, to prevent battery depletion beyond a certain voltage, the relay will prevent charge from being drawn by the draining source (appliance). The device alerts the user by switching the power 'off' for 10 seconds and then back 'on' for 1 minute. This function saves the battery and does away with those large replacement bills faced by hiring agencies.

 

Engine start protection mode - The ProLatch R can also be used on vehicles where all appliances are run from one starter battery (due to warranty or footprint reasons) such as: lorries, mobility vehicles and vans with inverters etc.. The ProLatch R allows your appliances to run safely from an engine starter battery without its voltage dropping below the engine starting voltage.If the voltage drops below the starting voltage the appliance will be cut off. It 'saves the day' by always allowing you to start the engine.
