Rebling has received patent protection for the features which have enabled Rebling's BFS switches to become the industry leader by handling 600 amps continuous and 3,000 amps peak while meeting UL operating temperature limits. The patent also covers Rebling's unique HVIL feature, which assures that the circuit is de-energized before the main switch contacts are engaged. The BFS family is available in single pole, double pole and HVIL versions and is the highest current, lowest resistance, toughest battery disconnector switch on the market.

Safety and Health standards organizations in North America, Europe and Japan (OSHA, SAE, IEC, ISO, NIOSH, JASO) mandate that a battery disconnector (with lock-out and tag-out features) is to be included in the design of every direct current system to enable each circuit to be completely de-energized, ensuring the safety of service personnel when maintenance is being performed. The same level of safety is required for all electrified or battery assisted vehicles to protect Emergency Medical and Safety responders in the event of a traffic accident.

Rebling's advanced design is the result of years of work and decades of experience with aerospace and commercial applications. The BFS family of switches has been designed for the harsh, exposed chassis environments of off-road work trucks, construction equipment, electrified and solar assisted passenger and cargo vehicles and stationary energy storage systems.

Rebling is proud of the hard work and collaboration of the engineering team (Alex Sinton, Dave Pora, Nate Bower) that made this project a success.
