SmartBank is available in 2 different flavours. Both are relay based, intelligent, split charge controllers. SmartBank Standard is the self contained unit taking care of all your split charge needs, whatever the charge source. When installed in conjunction with the SmartGauge battery monitor, the SmartGauge operates as a full remote display along with emergency battery paralleling and comprehensive error reporting. SmartBank Advanced is the slave operated split charge device which performs the same functions as SmartBank Standard, plus more, and operates as a remote slave device controlled by the SmartGauge battery monitor.

SmartBank Standard split charge controller

SmartBank-Standard The self contained central control unit which is the "brains" of the ultimate split charge system. The unit can be sited where most convenient and the relays can remain near to the batteries thus keeping the heavy duty battery cables as short as possible for increased charge efficiency and performance. Operates independantly of SmartGauge.

Now standard fit on many super-yachts, narrowboats and barges and the preferred choice of experienced marine engineers. SmartBank has made enormous inroads into the fleet vehicle market and has all but replaced every other type of split charge unit used by the premier UK ambulance builders. SmartBank Standard was designed specifically because existing "solutions" to split charge problems simply did not work.
