Caution: Please read this manual before installation;


1. Working conditions should not exceed the rated parameters;
2. Not live line work;
3. There is voltage difference between BDIT module and communication terminal, it
is strictly prohibited to tough battery and communication terminal by hand or metal
conductor etc;
4. The System is with high voltage, non-professionals forbidden to remove cable, to
prevent electric shock;
5. Equipment working environment should avoid moist, salt mist and high

Note: BDIT module need to connect to 12V power supply(can directly connect to 12V
battery output, also can use other 12V power supply)

Run the program BDIT Config Tool, Choose a correct serial port and clickopen
com

Then read the voltage and modify BDIT module address.(read the address bit first,
then write a new address bit)

Note: the address bit of each BDIT module can not be the same, must start
from 1 and write by sequence.

4. BDIT Modules Installation


Note: this operation should strictly observe safe operation rules, to avoid
electric shock, the operator must hold the electrician certificate
After set the first address bit of BDIT module, user can use battery clamp(anode

and

cathode) connect to the No.1 single battery(anode and cathode), BDIT module should
stick close to single battery to capture data of high accuracy;
Note: pay attention to short circuit, for the connection, the terminal of BDIT module
should be removed first, when the terminal( anode and cathode) connect well with
battery( anode and cathode), finally install the terminal to BDIT module.

2) Connect the RJ45 port of the BDIT to the group 1~6 RJ45 port with a network wire
(568B type wire)
3) Connect the battery clamp of the second BDIT module to the second module;
connect the RJ45 port to the RJ45 port of the previous BDIT;

Note: Temperature sensor should be in serial connection to the last BDIT module,
temperature module no need to config address bit. One set of battery Manager only
need 1 temperature sensor.

5. Hall Sensor Installation


Note:This operation should strictly observe to the safe operation rules, to avoid
electric shock, the operator is required to have electrician certificate)
Connection:

The fire wire which connects battery with UPS should go across the current sensor,
then the terminals of the current sensor like GNDMV-V+

should be connected

to the Current port of the Batt manager like GINV-V+ r, the dial switch of Batt
Manager all should be off.

Note: Please pay attention to current direction when install current sensor, the arrow
direction of current sensor should be same with battery string discharge direction

6. Network Monitoring Adapter Installation


Note: The Netmate III adapter should be installed after above steps are finished
