Victron Blue Power Battery Charger IP 22
The Victron Blue power battery charger is ideally suited for use in caravan’s, motorhomes, boats, horseboxes vans and smaller boats.
The range includes 15amp, 20amp and 30amp chargers with a choice of 1 output or 3 outputs. The 3 output Blue Power Charger is ideal for charging both service batteries and starter battery from the same charger.
With up to 94% efficiency, these chargers generate up to four times less heat when compared to the industry standard.
And once the battery is fully charged, power consumption reduces to 0,5 Watt, some five to ten times better than the industry standard.
Adaptive 6-stage charge algorithm:
Test - bulk – absorption - recondition – float – storage
The Blue Power Charger features a microprocessor controlled ‘adaptive’ battery management. The adaptive feature will automatically optimize the charging process relative to the way the battery is being used.
less maintenance and aging when the battery is not in use. The storage mode kicks in whenever the battery has not been subjected to discharge during 24 hours. In the storage mode float voltage is reduced to 2,2V/cell (13,2V for a 12V battery) to minimize gassing and corrosion of the positive plates. Once a week the voltage is raised back to the absorption level to ‘equalize’ the battery. This feature prevents stratification of the electrolyte and sulfation, a major cause of early battery failure.
Li-ion (LiFePO4) batteries
LiFePO4 batteries are charged with a simple bulk – absorption – float algorithm.
NIGHT and LOW setting
When in NIGHT or LOW mode, the output current is reduced to max. 50% of the nominal output and the charger will be totally noiseless. The NIGHT mode automatically ends after 8 hours. The LOW mode can be ended manually.
Protected against overheating
Output current will reduce as temperature increases up to 50°C, but the Blue Power Charger will not fail.
Eleven LEDs for status indication
Charge algorithm: TEST / BULK / ABSORPTION / RECONDITION / FLOAT / STORAGE / READY. MODE button to set: NORMAL (14,4V) / HIGH (14,7V) / RECONDITION / LI-ION.
