Battery switches isolate the potentially destructive energy in the battery banks when the boat is not in use or during emergencies.
Battery management is central to safe operation of a boat or vehicle. A battery switch is required by ABYC in every boat with a battery over 800 Cold Cranking Amps (CCA). This requirement exists so the potentially destructive energy in the batteries can be isolated in the event of a fire.
With involvement on the American Boating Yacht Council (ABYC) Electrical Component Project Committee, Blue Sea Systems is close to the source of standards for battery switches. The company's participation in the process means quick response when standards and needs of boaters change.
