This paper will emphasize the Vishay Dale WBPK600L Intelligent Battery Sensor, formally the WSBP8518 Intelligent Battery Sensor. It will highlight the resistive sensor's purpose and performance, and explain its related automotive functions. The paper will demonstrate a real-world test of the WBP and validate the product's accuracy through an in-lab test using information gained during the real-world test. The paper will also look at the device's non-automotive applications, its relevance in the renewable energy field, as well as compare the WBP to other battery monitoring technologies.
