Detailed Description

The BP12 requires a regulated charging source (provided by the CH150 or CH200 regulator connected to an unregulated solar panel or a wall charger). The BP12 includes a 24 in. attached cable that terminates in a connector for attaching the battery to a CH150 or CH200 regulator. The BP12 also comes with a 24 in. cable for use with the CR6 datalogger or other products that need a pigtail termination instead of a white connector. (This cable is bagged and taped to the battery.) Switching the standard cable for the pigtail cable is easily accomplished by the user. The BP12 is shipped with hardware for mounting the battery in our enclosures. An ENC16/18 or larger enclosure is recommended.

  4. Yes. The BP12 Mounting Bracket is available as pn 8061. To mount the bracket to the enclosure’s backplate, it may be necessary to purchase four pn 505 screws and four pn 6044 grommets.

  5. Trickle chargers and float chargers vary. It is possible to do this, but ensure that the regulator voltage will match the battery specifications [13.65 V – (18 mV) x (T-25°C)] for float charging.
