Status Information at a Glance
you like to know how much charge you really have
in your battery?
Even more importantly, how much energy you
have stored that you can really USE!
fact that many
people are not aware that a simple voltage reading on a voltage meter
give any real or accurate indication as
to what usable energy you
have stored in a battery.
instance, how many people know this....
intense purposes, a battery meter reading of 12V
a disconnected battery
that it is all but flat (empty
of useful energy)!!
Or how about under some load or charging conditions, a reading of 12.5V
can mean that the battery is fully charged, or it could mean that it's
Sadly it's also very true that most
just die, they get murdered!
where easy to read super smart and intelligent Battery Monitors come
into their own.
we really need to know is the batteries State
Of Charge (SOC)
with some other very helpful information.
Battery monitor has 4 screens that you can easily access,
and you can leave it idle on any one of these screens,
but each and every screen shows
an easy to read fuel gauge showing SOC.
every-time you walk past you can see
at just a glance,
how your batteries are holding up and their true SOC,
so you will never be left in the dark (was
that a pun?)
or with warm beer, now
how good is that!!
I love these super smart battery
I call them EBM's
believe that in the modern Motorhome, Caravan, 4x4, Boat or Camping
situation, our power demands have increased a lot from the old days
past, and folks whole enjoyment of their RV experience now more than
ever revolves around powered devices, so a failure in this area due to
low power, can just destroy a
So in my opinion to be kept fully informed as to the battery situation
at all times is paramount for all RVers .
I know that having good
easy to read and understand battery monitoring,
and prevents most power problems.
These are such a
valuable tool, and
have been pointing out the advantages of proper battery monitoring for
well over 10 years now.
monitor does not come with a connection kit).
I believe that anyone with an auxiliary, dual or 'house'
battery should have one of these battery monitors.
is for this reason that I have secured the best deal for my customers,
and I can offer these EBM's at a great price, and
with my exclusive bonus connection
funny you know, when I bought my first proper battery monitor, it cost
just over $600, that was 11 years ago!!
still have it in full use today (different brand and model but has all
the same useful information),
I bought it from the same guy that I buy the EBM's from today :-)
do warn my customers that once you have owned one of these meters,
you will not feel comfortable using or
operating anything with an auxiliary battery, without
having a battery monitor, so be warned!!
But it sure does give you a
smug and knowing feeling when you do have one :-)
The EBM Battery
Monitor uses sophisticated microprocessor technology to provide
complete battery status information for your battery.
A simple display
shows volts, amps, amp hours consumed, percentage of charge.
monitors come with
full and comprehensive installation instructions,
to help with the first time
set-up I offer extra help sheets.
all wiring required for connecting
this monitor up, these extras include......
5M x Cat 5e communication cable
in-line fuse holder and fuse
Monitor PCB (printed circuit board)
Shunt PCB incorporating cable adaptor
1 x heavy battery to shunt link tab (a Fridge & Solar innovation)
monitor can even be
mounted externally, with the face outside to the weather,
I've done this on my own camping trailer.
monitors are made in the Netherlands by TBS for Enerdrive Australia,
and yes these are identical to the very popular Xantrex Battery Monitor
(XBM's) I've been selling for years.

monitor that give you a smart, precise status of your batteries at a
the amount of energy available in a
battery is a complex task since battery age, discharge current and
temperature all influence the actual battery capacity. High performance
measuring circuits, along with complex software algorithms, are used to
exactly determine the remaining battery capacity. The eLITE selectively
displays voltage, charge and discharge current, consumed amphours,
remaining battery capacity. Using a clear backlit LCD Display and an
intuitive user interface, all parameters can be recalled with just a
button press. A second battery input is also provided to monitor
voltage on a second battery. The eLITE is equipped with an internal
programmable alarm relay, to start a generator when needed or to turn
off devices when the battery voltage exceeds programmable boundaries.
