Thinking of installation a split charge system? Why not check out our Made-To-Measure Split Charge Kits


12V, 140A rated voltage sensitive relay for split charging applications in camper vans, motorhomes, 4x4s and boats. Allows charge to flow into one battery (or bank of batteries) only when a charging voltage is detected at the other battery (dual sensing operation).

  • Dual sensing operation - charges from starter battery to leisure battery when alternator is running and charges from leisure battery to starter battery when solar panels or mains charger are connected.
  • Relay connects when voltage at either terminal reaches 13.3V
  • Relay disconnects when voltage at either terminal drops below 12.8V
  • Maintains battery isolation when not charging, so starter cannot be drained by leisure use and vice-versa. 
  • Well proven design with 1000s of units operating in the field
  • Terminal connections marked on inside of unit for easy wiring

Note: The benefit of this type of relay is that it does not require a connection to the alternator or any modifications to the existing vehicle electrical system.  Simply connect the +ve terminals on each of your batteries to the terminals on the relay and the black relay wire to a common -ve point.

An LED indicates when the relay is ON (contacts closed). Fixing holes in the body allow the unit to be mounted to a bulkhead and multiple break-out panels provide various cable routing options.

Fully encapsulated electronics make this unit splashproof and particularly suitable for harsh environments (marine use, vehicle engine bays etc.)

Sold individually. 

IMPORTANT NOTE: These relays are not suitable for vehicles with 'smart' or 'intelligent' alternators. As a guide this applies to vehicles having engines that comply with Euro5 emissions standards and onward, often also incorporating regenerative braking (if in doubt please consult your vehicle manufacturer to confirm). If your vehicle has a smart alternator then you will need to use a battery-to-battery charger instead of a VSR.


  • Sensing mode: Dual (2-way split charging, starter to leisure and vice-versa)
  • Voltage rating: 12V DC
  • Current rating: 140A
  • 'Cut-in' voltage: 13.3V
  • 'Cut-out' voltage: 12.8V
  • Terminal size: 2 x M6 studs and nuts
  • Other connections: Ground wire to connect to common -ve
  • Ground wire length: 40cm approx.
  • Fixing hole dia: 5.3mm
  • Overall dimensions: 67 (W) x 67 (H) x 52 (D) mm
