    Does anyone know what the LBG means on a BP charge regulator.
    On the readout it gives State of charge in bars,then how many volts ie,12.5 and alongside this it says 75 LBG. What does this LBG mean?.
    Its a BP GCR 1200 M.
    Have tried Googling but cant find an instruction manual.

    The bar reading is the amount of charge left in percentage, ie 75% ?

    just guessing ..

    Linear or Logarithmic Bar Graph

    Thanks for the reply Jim. Sorry if its a bit confusing, Its the way I explained it.
    There are 4 automatic continuas readouts.
    First its SOC with a bar graf, I presume this is state of charge.
    Secondly its VBAT which I presume is Volts in the battery,but alongside this is 75 LBG which is the one I dont understand.
    Thirdly its IL which I presume is whats being put in from the solars.
    Lastly its IM which I presume is whats being taken out of the batteries.

    Sorry about the confusion, I must go to specsavers.

    What I thought read LBG infact reads LBA.

    This morning it reads 95 LBA...Can anyone shed any light on what the LBA means.

    It might have been LBG yesterday...

    It looks like some BP controllers are rebadged Stecas.

    This old Steca model looks like a 1200 without LCD, but I couldn't find a model with LCD. However this device has a display that, according to the manual, displays what you are describing. Which can be LBG or LBA (page 23 of the manual) depending on the type of charge being done.

    It's not entirely clear but I think the number might be a percentage.
