Back to DC Modular Family
The DC Modular Remote Battery Switch (RBS) is a smart high current magnetic latching contactor, that can handle continuous DC currents of up to 500Amps. The RBS can easily be installed in an engine room or battery compartment, while being controlled from a more convenient location by a small panel mounted switch. But the RBS can for instance also be controlled by a battery monitor or managed Lithium battery.
Besides controlling the RBS remotely, buttons positioned at the top also provide a way to open or close the main contact locally. For external control, the RBS is equipped with a 5 wire interface cable. It can be configured to accept two wire or single wire ON/OFF commands for optimal flexibility.
The RBS is a magnetic latching relay, which means that there is no current draw from the battery when the contact is closed. This is a great benefit compared to regular relays which do require a (sometimes significant-) hold current to keep the contact closed.
Another benefit of the RBS are the built in protections. It is protected against high/low supply voltage and high temperature. On top of this, there is a smart function available to automatically fix light to medium contact weldings. And finally, the RBS is also ignition protected according to ISO8846.
Being a member of the TBS DC Modular family, the RBS can be part of a very compact DC distribution system. The RBS footprint is around 50% smaller compared to some competing products, which is perfect for space constrained installations.
