The TriMetric 2030 is used to monitor battery systems used in remote homes, RVs or boats that have batteries that store solar, wind, or possibly generator powered chargers.
Measures battery % full, based on amp hour measurements for accurate information on how much battery energy is left. This method is more accurate than monitors that use only voltage to determine how full your batteries are, especially when they are between 30-90% full. Battery system size: 10-10,000 amp hours.
Measures battery charging or discharging amps—or watts: To check that chargers are still charging at proper amounts—also to check to see how much your loads are drawing—and to discover phantom 24 hour loads that you may not know about.
Measures battery volts (9.0 to 75): to verify that chargers are charging to correct voltage for your batteries.
New with the TM-2030: Audible low battery alarm, based on volts and % full. May be silenced.
Measures days since charged: Shows how many days have elapsed since batteries were last fully charged. Batteries can lose ability to hold charge if this becomes too long.
Shows days since equalized: A reminder to equalize at appropriate time if you do manual equalizations.
New with the TM-2030: Displays replaced percentage of charge, compared to most recent discharge
Logged data functions: You may not need this, but a technician trying to diagnose what is wrong will find these very helpful:
Data for each of last five charge/discharge cycles:
Data for each of the last five days:
