Eagle Eye releases VGM-Series battery voltage, ground fault monitors
By Renée Francoeur
March 13, 2015 – The VGM-Series is Eagle Eye Power Solutions’ newest line of continuous battery monitoring systems—designed to monitor battery string voltage and ground faults in real-time.
The series is designed for monitoring of 24V, 48V, 125V, and 250V batteries.
The VGM-100 Battery Voltage & Ground Fault Monitor reads battery status, detects out-of-limit conditions and provides alarm conditions at user settings. It includes four Form C contacts.
The GFM-100 Battery Ground Fault Monitor is a real time solution for monitoring battery ground faults. If a ground fault is detected, a positive or negative ground fault message will appear, and the GFM-100 can activate one of four Form C contacts.
The VM-100 Battery Voltage Monitor will “continuously” monitor battery string over voltage and under voltage conditions, said Eagle Eye. If over or under voltage is detected, the voltage status will appear on the unit & the VM-100 will activate one of four Form C Contacts.
Eagle Eye Power Solutions offers many other real-time battery monitoring systems for DC applications including utilities, telecoms, and DC generators.
