The undervoltage specifications for this IC is a bit confusing to me as this is the first time I'm working with these kind of circuits.
Aim : I want to monitor the voltage of a battery pack (consisting of 8 x 14 V batteries) being used to power my house. The voltage monitor must be able to trigger a relay to switch to mains power when the battery pack are below a certain level (96 V in this case). I understand that there are voltage monitors designed for batteries in this case that would come with all the settings but I want to switch the battery over to Mains power supply much before the specified 92 V.
In my case the undervoltage shouldn't really matter as my interested voltage range is from 96 V to 112 V. But this circuit designed for 24 V level monitor specifies a term "24 V Undervoltage" which is puzzling me
The spec sheet for the IC specifies the Undervoltage lockout as 3V under Vin RISING condition. Infact the operating range for the IC is 3.5V to 100V which means to say that the IC will not operate below 3.5V.
What do they actually mean by these terms? Is this kind of circuit well suited to be adapted for my aim? Or would it be better for me measure the voltage of single battery and assume rest of the 7 batteries would be of the same voltage?
