Connecting multiple BEAT’s

The BEAT with multiple batteries

In this instruction manual, detailed instructions are given to install and operate the BEAT50 on multiple 12V batteries or battery systems (up to 36V).
These instructions apply to the BEAT100, but are also valid for the BEAT50.

Read these instructions well. The manufacturer is not responsible for any damage, which results from neglect, misuse or non compliance with this guidance document. If you don’t understand the risks of what you are doing we strongly advise to have the installation be done by an expert. 

For detailed instructions on the use of the BEAT on a single battery please see our section: ‘Connecting the BEAT‘. The instruction manual can also be downloaded on the download page in PDF format.

Intended use

BEAT50 / BEAT100

The BEAT50 can be used with any lead-acid / gel lead-acid / AGM battery, but may be operated on 12V systems only. Those systems can be comprised of a single 12V battery, but may also be comprised of a set of 6V batteries set in series to produce 12V. Other types of batteries or battery systems, in particular with batteries that produce a higher voltage, may have unpredictable consequences, and are therefore not supported, as they may damage the product.

Batteries, or battery systems, that produce voltage ranging from 12V up to 36V, (from 5Ah to 600Ah), can be treated with Crystal Control Technology using multiple BEAT units.
For 24V battery systems two BEAT50’s are needed, for 36V battery systems three BEAT50’s are needed.

BEAT200

Battery systems on 48 V or higher must be equipped with the BEAT200.

Installation

The BEAT 50 is installed by bridging the unit directly across and in close proximity to the battery terminals/battery cell connections. Relevant information about the BEAT, it’s design and functionality, is given in the section ‘How to connect the single BEAT’

The user that wants to install the BEAT units on multiple batteries first MUST be familiar with the instructions described in our section ‘Connecting the BEAT‘ . You will find detailed instruction how to safely connect the BEAT units with a 12 V battery or with two 6V batteries in series.
