How many battery positions can I connect to one single controller?
You can connect a maximum of 50 positions in one pool, if you have more positions you will need more than one controller.

The volume is too loud/quiet, can I adjust this?
It is not possible to adjust the volume, but it is possible to change the tone. if you contact your local Philadelphia Scientific distributor, they will be able to provide you with detailed instructions.

What else do I need apart from the iBos basic controller?
The iBos basic will require one sentinel for each charger, so the quantity of sentinels will depend on the amount of chargers you will be using.

Is online reporting an option if I purchase an iBos basic?
Online reporting is not available on the iBos Basic, if online reporting is an important factor then we would suggest purchasing an iBos Plus or Pro, they come with many additional features as well as reporting.

Can I connect a tv screen to show the next available battery?
unfortunately this feature is only available on the iBos Plus or Pro.
