PRODUCT DESCRIPTION  FumeOut™ is designed to keep your battery compartment free of the fumes that are normally generated during recharging or equalization. Consisting mostly of hydrogen and oxygen, these gases can become explosive if allowed to accumulate in the battery compartment or other enclosed spaces. By drawing them outdoors, FumeOut™ performs an essential safety function.

FumeOut™  attaches to your battery compartment's 4-inch, 3-inch, 2-inch or 1.5-inch vent pipe with rubber drain couplers (included). It can also be be ordered without any couplers - Ideal for applications where the vent pipe size hasn't been determined yet. 

HOW IT WORKS – 
FumeOut™ constantly monitors your battery bank voltage, automatically turning on its fan motor whenever the battery voltage becomes high enough to cause gassing. The Controller is factory-calibrated to turn the fan on if the battery voltage exceeds 2.33 volts per cell, (i.e., 14.0 volts for a 12-volt battery bank) and to shut off the fan when the voltage drops to 2.30 volts per cell (i.e., 13.8 volts for a 12 volt bank).

A DIP switch on the controller circuit board allows these settings to be changed by the user - The turn-on voltage can be set to any value between 2.20 and 2.46 volts per cell, in 32 increments (i.e, 13.2 to 14.8 volts for a 12 volt battery bank). The turn-off voltage can be set to either 0.033, 0.066, 0.099 or 0.133 volts per cell below the turn-on setting
(i.e., 0.2 to 0.5 volts for a 12 volt bank).

FumeOut™ uses a low-voltage DC brushless fan motor - Very quiet, energy-efficient, and safe for use in potentially explosive environments. The motor itself is a high-quality, dual ball bearing design, and is user-replaceable - No need to buy another entire fan if the motor ever fails. Spare/replacement motors are available from the factory for $44.00.

Other features include:

FAN FAILURE ALARM – This safety feature sounds a built-in alarm if the fan motor stalls or fails to start.

PURGE TIMER –When enabled, this function runs the fan for 5 minutes every 24 hours to remove any fumes that might accumulate in between recharges. A DIP switch on the Controller circuit board allows it to be enabled or disabled as desired.

MULTI-VOLTAGE OPERATION –The Controller contains an efficient, switching-type voltage regulator that allows the fan motor to be operated from 12, 24 or 48 volt battery banks (maximum input is 100 DC volts). This design minimizes power consumption - regardless of battery bank voltage - and also eliminates any need to buy another fan when upgrading to a different battery bank voltage.

RUGGED CONSTRUCTION – The fan controller circuitry is housed inside a weatherproof gasketed enclosure, suitable for indoor or outdoor installation. The enclosure includes a coupler for attaching standard 1/2" non-metallic liquid-tight flexible conduit - Provides a weather-tight, code-compliant method of connecting to your batteries.

FumeOut™ is backed by a 1-year warranty, with factory service and replacement parts available.
