MBVCE is a Stand Alone Battery Monitor using proprietary MBBM® (Model Based Battery Monitoring) algorithm to determine the SOH (State-of-Health) and SOC (State-of-Charge) of a vehicle’s auxiliary batteries. The Low SOC Disconnect option can send a discrete signal to open a bistable contactor if the SOC lowers to a chosen value. It then isolates the starter batteries for a future sure start. SOH and SOC values are communicated via SAE J1939 CAN protocols.
This in turn can enable vehicle multiplex systems to initiate intelligent load shedding ensuring optimal battery use, and guaranteed engine starting.
