https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Other_Backward_Class

Other Backward Class (OBC) is a collective term used by the Government of India to classify castes which are socially and educationally disadvantaged. It is one of several official classifications of the population of India, along with Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (SCs and STs). The OBCs were found to comprise 52% of the country's population by the Mandal Commission report of 1980, a figure which had shrunk to 41% by 2006 when the National Sample Survey Organisation took place

I am not sure what You are asking...

The OBC has been used by used by Club Car for a long time and most of those carts are still using it.

If You use the system as it was intended to be used, with all negative loads originating from Controller B-, it works well.

The replacement cost of the individual components, OBC or external power supply, is too high compared to other available stand alone smart chargers, so typically folks buy a smart charger rather than fixing a broken OBC charging system.

Sometimes they are also replaced because the owner wants a on-board charger or different features.

I added a timer/remote control to my OBC system so I can get a fresh charge when I want.

As far as the litigation is concerned, it still going on and it will continue until the lawyers have depleted all the money from all parties involved.

Precedent Club cars built in 2014 (I think this was the first year) and later no longer have an OBC. They use an Excel controller with an E.R.I.C. Charger which is a smart charger somewhat like a DPI.

Can anyone update on status of OBC? Still in use, or everyone by passing it?
