LVD - Low Voltage Disconnect
Return to modifications
LVD currently used for the fridge power only - protects batteries
from over discharge
The reason I fitted a LVD is that the fridge draws around 5 amps
when running, it would be possible to take too much power from the
batteries causing damage (if dropped below 12 VDC )
This could happen over night and I want to avoid deep discharging
The LDV will disconnect the power to the fridge before the batteries
get too low.
The unit I use was a programmable one from Ebay, the low voltage can
be set as well as the cut back in voltage.
