The Battery Terminal Temperature Sensor can be used to monitor battery temperature to ensure optimum performance. The sensor connects to the negative battery terminal to provide readings that can assist with monitoring battery health and internal temperature. As the sensor provides the closest thermal connection to the internal plates of the battery, the readings are very close to the actual internal battery temperature. The built-in sensor chip is insulated to provide protection from interference caused by ambient temperature fluctuations.
Battery Heath Sensors can provide a more complete set of data including battery terminal temperature, voltage and current monitoring.
