Thank you for purchasing a high quality, german made product from BOS Balance of Storage Systems AG. We worked strictly according to german engineering standards in order to deliver valuable energy services for our customers. In case of technical problems or comments of any kind, please contact the local distributor for support.
Data points from the BOS batteries, such as cell voltages, SoC, temperature and current, are communicated to a RV-C bus. This way, control units which can handle the RV-C protocol can display all relevant data from the battery. Compatible with the Hymer Smart Caravan Unit.
Data is communicated bidirectionally between BOS batteries and SFC. Error codes are also transmitted. This means that a BOS battery can be displayed and controlled in the SFC system, but a hydrogen cell can also be displayed in other systems, e.g. the BOS App oder RVC, by connecting other BOS connect products in the overall system.
For communication of BOS batteries with the Victron Cerbo. The BOS battery is then shown in the Victron menu and all details such as maximum charging current, cell voltages and others are displayed. Victron also uses the data for system management and can therefore regulate the charge controllers according to the specifications from the batteries.
The total charge status of the BOS batteries is reflected via an analog signal between 0 and 10V. For this purpose, the wake-up voltage of 12V needs to be applied to the connector such that the analog output well be enabled. Without a wakeup signal, it switches to sleep mode to minimize standby power consumption. The load on the analog output should not draw more than 10mA. The system is compatible with the Hymer display.
All BOS connect products are designed and verified according to the following standards/guidelines:
The BOS connect is approved for use in motor vehicles and bears the ECE test mark E1*10R06/02*9808*00
Connect the BOS communication cable to the battery. To do this, plug the Molex Microfit connector into the BOS connect and on the other side plug the MX80 connector into the communication port on the the battery. Termination is not necessary on the BOS connect, as this is integrated in the device. However, a termination plug must be inserted on the battery side if no other batteries are looped through.
A button is located on the product itself which triggers a Wake-up on the BOS bus when pressed. This wakes up all the connected batteries. Incase they are switched off, the batteries are switched on; There is an error, this is acknowledged.
Press the button for 10 seconds to switch off all connected batteries.
The BOS connect comes with a two-year warranty on the product starting from the date of purchase. There is no warranty granted on other system components from other manufacturers that are used together with the BOS connect. In case of problems, comments or a warranty claim or the need for spare parts please contact the local dealer or BOS for support.
