Abstract:

An automatic device for control of charging of a storage battery with electrolyte and monitoring the electrolyte density is discussed and a circuit diagram is provided. The device contains an electrolyte level sensor, electromagnetic valve, flip-flop control system and signal lamps. The circuit is arranged so that when the electrolyte closes the circuit through the sensor the electrolyte supply valve is closed, and so that, if the electrolyte density is not up to standard, the current is shunted through a slightly different signal system.
