The single biggest problem for people operating equipment in the field from vehicles is how you operate your systems without the engine running for any more than an hour or so, and how do you protect and manage your batteries so they don't get flogged, lose half their service life and capacity within weeks needing replacement.
Merlin Power Systems have a complete company focus on solving these issues for Military and Blue Light users. The Merlin battery monitoring systems give you high accuracy State of Charge (SoC) and State of Health (SoH). This tells you how much juice you have in your system and how long your batteries have to go before you need to change them out. Leveraging on this core function Merlin provide additional equipment and expertise to allow users to build complete battery and power management systems onto vehicles.
Later in 2017 Merlin will be releasing their lithium ion battery system that will augment and add to the power management systems and this will be followed with a diesel fuel cell product at a later date.
