Installation Instructions
ALPHAGuard Installation
1. Set the BATTERY BREAKER to the OFF position, and unplug the battery string from the power supply.
The ALPHAGuard supplies electrical compensation for differences in individual batteries in the string. One ALPHAGuard is
required per battery string. A wire harness connects the ALPHAGuard to each of the batteries in the string. The unit can be
configured to pass measurements from the battery string to a status monitoring device (EDSM card, DOCSIS transponder, etc.)
via an interface cable.
Battery Cable Connection
2. Connect all battery monitoring harness leads to the appropriate battery terminals per the stack up diagram
below. Connect the battery cable and the voltage sense cable to the ALPHAGuard. Refer to the wiring diagrams
on page 2 for wiring details.

WARNING! CHEMICAL HAZARD
Any liquid emissions from a valve-regulated lead-acid (VRLA) battery contains dilute sulfuric acid, which
is harmful to the skin and eyes. Emissions are electrolytic and are electrically conductive and corrosive.

WARNING! ELECTRICAL HAZARD
• Battery strings contain lethal voltages. Refer to battery manufacturer's installation manual before
installing or making any connections to the batteries.
• Refer to the power supply manufacturer's installation instructions before making any connections to
the power supply.

•
The ALPHAGuard requires ventilation for proper operation and optimum life. Place the ALPHAGuard on top of the
batteries, and position it so it will not fall between the batteries.
Standby power is not available while the batteries are disconnected.

5. After the power supply resumes charging the batteries, verify
the green status indicator LED illuminates (>38.6 for 36VDC
strings; >51.4VDC for 48VDC strings). If it does not illuminate,
verify wiring is correct and battery voltages.
