Extreme Outback Announces Intelligent Dual-Battery Manager
Mar 2, 2010
Extreme Outback's computer-controlled battery manager performs the standard feature of separating the starting battery from the auxiliary battery. But it has some cools tricks up its sleeve, like the ability to connect both batteries together at the flick of a switch, when you're running a winch. Read on for more details.
Extreme Outback Products now offers the IBS (Intelligent Battery System), a computerized dual-battery manager. Developed in Switzerland, the state-of-the-art system uses a RISC micro-computer to either isolate or link multiple batteries as needed. Normal operation separates the starting battery from the auxiliary one to safely power electrical accessories when the vehicle isn't running. An override button links the batteries for high-load uses such as winching and is also used for self jump-starting. In-cab monitoring, which uses an LED display to show each battery's state of charge (shown), is available. The system is offered in 12-volt and 24-volt models (controls four batteries). Installation involves an included power cable and a pre-made four-wire harness.
