The Smart Battery Combiner (ME-SBC) monitors and charges a second battery using a portion of the current that is charging a main battery.

The Smart Battery Combiner (ME-SBC) is an easy-to-use standalone battery combiner and isolator for 12 and 24 VDC systems. Apply a single charging source to the main battery bank and the ME-SBC charges a second battery bank using a portion of the current.

With adjustable voltage ranges, including automatic on/off setpoints, the ME-SBC prevents under- or over-charging.

The ME-SBC uses MOSFETs, which is a bidirectional electronic switch, control circuit that eliminates a significant voltage drop and provides automatic turn on and off based on adjustable voltage setpoints; allowing different batteries to be charged from a single charging source.
