Battery Disconnect Switches
Battery terminal disconnect switches cut-off electrical power, help protect against electrical fires and theft when equipment is not in use, provide a reliable shutdown of power during maintenance, and protect batteries from excessive drain.
Commercial vehicle electrical systems are very demanding of batteries. Excessive drain happens even when the ignition switch is in the off position. Our Battery Doctor® switches are designed to power down the vehicle completely, protecting against parasitic battery drain. Cutting off the battery with a master battery disconnect switch removes all parasitic loads and small leakage currents that kill a battery over time.
Battery Doctor® disconnect switch installation is usually done either for safety considerations or as an anti theft device or both.
