Standard vehicles are fitted with basic electrical systems that allow engine starting, operation of lights, wipers, horns etc. Start adding additional equipment, extra batteries, winches, high power inverters, flood lamps etc more power is needed. However, blindly throwing more and more power onto the vehicle is not the answer – often there simply isn’t the weight allowance, space or budget.
Careful management of available power, where is it supplied to, preventing overcharge of batteries and ensuring safety and reliability are all key factors in designing a specialist vehicle’s power system.
Merlin’s range of Battery Management Products allow you to create a smart system that minimises power consumption and maximises vehicle reliability.
