We are proud to announce the release of a number of products today which are available on this website and are being launched at the Adelaide 4WD and Adventure Show.
The new products are aimed at caravan, camper trailer or 4WD enthusiasts who rely on battery power and have dual battery setups.
REDARC’s Managing Director, Mr Anthony Kittel, said one of the keys to REDARC being named Telstra Australian Business of the Year was its commitment to innovation.
“We have a huge pipeline of ideas that we are turning into new products,” he said.
The new releases are:
Mr Kittel said the Manager30 is an enhancement of REDARC’s BMS1215, rated at 30 amps to provide more rapid battery charging and power.
It enables auxiliary batteries to be charged from the vehicle while it is running, from 240 volt mains power, or from solar panels. It is also a battery isolator and includes a monitor to provide battery information and charge status.
“The Manager30 uniquely has been designed to power share, meaning it will take charge from multiple sources simultaneously,” he said.
“If solar is available, it will charge the battery from that source first, followed by AC (mains power) and then DC power. We understand this is the only battery management system in the world that is able to power share.”
The Manager30 retails for around $1997
REDARC is also releasing its own range of 52mm gauges, offering dual or triple functionality.
The gauges use unique LCD/LED technology and combine needle point and digital display on the one dial. The gauges are used to monitor battery status (voltage and current), oil pressure, exhaust gas temperature, boost/vacuum and a range of temperature applications such as outside, cabin, oil, coolant and fridge temperatures.
With 12 variants to choose from, each comes with 13 custom backlit colours, optional sensors, and programmable alert levels as well as relay output and peak hold functions on all variants except voltage gauges.
Mr Kittel said the REDARC gauges place all necessary information in clear view, enabling the monitoring of key vehicle functions.
“The extension for REDARC into the development and manufacture of gauges is a natural progression as this new product category complements the battery charging market we are renowned for,” he said.
Gauges will vary in price from $165 to $395.
