The Audioroot eSMART BG-DU is a compact and lightweight powering box with 8 protected outputs, 3 locking switches and a full featured smart fuel gauge.
This product was designed for use in larger sound bags or small location carts. The power distributor can be connected to any battery type (SLA, NI-MH or LI-ION) and the fuel gauge provides all the informations required to monitor the battery’s state of charge (voltage, current, power, etc…).
The Audioroot eSMART BG-DU uses an internal coulomb counter and a calibration routine to measure the battery’s true capacity and display it’s remaining capacity in real time. This power distributor is also fully compatible with our full line of Li-XXwh smart batteries. A stainless steel clip is included and can be mounted on the top or bottom of the unit for easy attachment in a sound bag.
eSmart BG-DU Features:
- Real time monitoring of the battery’s SOC : remaining capacity (%), run time estimation, battery voltage, power consumption, power and coulomb counter
- 8 switchable outputs using 3 locking switches
- Polyswitch 2.5A resetable fuses on each output
- A blinking LED indicates when the battery capacity falls below 10 %
- Compatible with any battery ranging from 6 to 24V
- Stainless steel clip included
- Compact and lightweight : (129g , 85x75x30mm)
A 4 conductor battery input cable is required for eSMART operation (i.e when connecting eSMART batteries to the BG-DU). This cable is sold separately under reference eHRS4-OUT-4W. The 2 conductor Hirose battery output cable available under reference eHRS4-OUT will not enable battery data communications between the eSMART batteries and the BG-DU. Please contact us or your dealer for more information.
Note to Hawk-Woods products users:
The wiring of Hawk-Woods products is incompatible with the BG-DU or BG-DU-REG out of box. On these products the internal pins of the Hirose male plugs are tied together 2 by 2 : pins 1 and 2 / pins 3 and 4. When using the BG-DU or BG-DU-REG pins 2 and 3 of the male Hirose plug connected to the unit’s input must be left unconnected as these are used for communication with smart batteries. Hawk-Woods users can solve this issue by rewiring the male Hirose plug (leaving pins 2 and 3 un-connected) or by removing 2 solder jumpers inside the BG-DU or BG-DU-REG. Please contact us for more details.
Max battery capacity:
The BG-DU can handle standard (non smbus) batteries from other manufacturers up to 40Ah. A special version capable of handling batteries up to 200Ah can be delivered upon request.
Max current draw:
The BG-DU can easily and safely handle a total current draw of 5 Amps.
