Complete DC system reliability

Bruno DC System Watchdog Monitor is a supervisory system that informs and educates on the health of your entire DC system and provides early warning detection.

Detect battery failures through float current trending, battery continuity and capacity test. Verify charger operation with float voltage trending, ensure system safety with ground fault detection and prevent inefficient system performance with temperature monitoring.

Bruno DC System Watchdog Monitor from HindlePower empowers DC system reliability by detecting the undetected. With built in intelligence, you will have clear insight into your entire DC system and have the peace of mind knowing it is operating properly.

The user-friendly interface paired with the Hindle Health System will allow you to simplify data gathered from your battery, charger, system loads and other DC equipment all while streamlining maintenance procedures to make the job easy. Bruno’s versatile, adaptive technology makes it your true partner in DC system reliability.

What can Bruno do for you?

Float Current Measurement Float current is monitored, recorded and trended over the life of the battery
Temperature Temperature Battery and ambient temperature are monitored, recorded, and trended over the life of the battery
Battery Supply Voltage The float charge voltage, supplied to the battery, is monitored, recorded and trended over the life of the battery
Electrolyte Level The electrolyte level is recorded manually for centralized data collection
Battery Capacity Test Battery Capacity testing per IEEE 450/1106/1188
Active Load Profile Battery current, battery voltage, and charger current is recorded for any event that discharges more than 1A from the battery
Intelligent Ground Fault DC system ground fault detection for all components in circuit
Battery Continuity Verifies continuity of the battery, also known as open battery
