SureStart Low Voltage Disconnect Switch 48513
Cole Hersee introduces its SureStart Low Voltage Disconnect (LVD) Switch 48513. The Cole Hersee SureStart Low Voltage Disconnect Switch electronically senses battery voltage and conserves starting power by disconnecting non-critical loads, prolonging battery life by preventing battery damage due to excessive discharge.
When battery drain occurs, there are substantial costs associated with downtime, vehicle recovery, and battery damage due to over-discharge.
The switch has a rating of 100A at 12V or 24V DC. Its service life exceeds 1,000,000 on/off cycles, and it also features a manual override that allows users to connect or disconnect the switch when needed, regardless of voltage.
The SureStart LVD switch features a compact size (4.5 x 4 x 4.27”) which makes it easy to install into a new or old vehicle. Unlike many voltage monitoring devices, the SureStart LVD switch does not require a separate solenoid to control high current, increasing reliability, and simplifying installation. The switch’s resistance to moisture, salt spray, vibration and shock make it a versatile device that can be implemented into any vehicle or environment.

New Compact Wrench Makes Linemen’s Work Easier
Lowell Corporation now offers a new version of its Triple Square Lineman’s dedicated socket wrench that is physically smaller and lighter than the original. The Model 101T Mini Triple Square wrench is designed to meet the specific needs of high line utility workers.
The Mini Triple weighs 1.5 lbs. and has an 8” handle. It has a 3-in-1 socket that fits most common utility pole fasteners: lag bolts, C-clamps, and suspension bolts.
The combination socket has oversize 3/4”, 1” and 1-1/8” square openings for 1/2”, 5/8” and 3/4” hardware. The reduced socket depth makes the tool easier to use in tight spaces. The vinyl grip improves worker comfort.
Although the new wrench is compact in size, it still delivers big time performance with a torque capacity of 150 lb/ft. The wrench is made of fabricated steel with a semi-enclosed ratchet mechanism to minimize fouling. Handle and socket are coated with electrostatic epoxy paint for durability and easy cleaning. The wrench incorporates Lowell’s Bolt-Thru design.
All Lowell wrenches are guaranteed against defects in material and workmanship for a period of one year from date of delivery.
