Victron Phoenix Smart 12V 50A Battery Charger
The Victron Phoenix Smart Charger is a cutting-edge device that combines advanced technology with user-friendly features to provide a seamless charging experience for your batteries. With its Bluetooth capability, you can effortlessly set up, monitor, control, update, and synchronize the charger wirelessly.
Phoenix Smart (1+1) – Charge Two Battery Banks
The Phoenix Smart Charger features two outputs, allowing you to charge two battery banks simultaneously. The second output, specifically designed for a starter battery, offers a limited current of approximately 4A and slightly lower voltage to ensure optimal performance.
Automatic Voltage Compensation
Say goodbye to voltage drop issues over DC cabling. The Victron Phoenix Smart Charger comes equipped with automatic voltage compensation, which cleverly adjusts the output voltage when there is an increase in DC current. This compensation ensures that your batteries receive the proper charge, regardless of cable length or quality.
Adaptive 6-Stage Charge Algorithm
Tailor the charge algorithm to meet your specific needs with the Phoenix Smart Charger’s highly adaptive battery management system. With its 6-stage charge algorithm, including bulk, absorption, recondition, float, storage, and refresh modes, this charger can cater to various battery types and optimize the charging process based on battery usage. It also allows programming via Bluetooth or the VE.Direct interface, enabling you to customize the charging process according to your battery requirements. With the mode button, you can easily select from three preprogrammed algorithms to streamline your charging experience.
Variable Absorption Time for Optimal Charging
To prevent overcharging and maintain battery health, the Victron Phoenix Smart Charger incorporates a variable absorption time. When shallow discharges occur, the absorption time is kept short. However, after a deep discharge, the charger automatically extends the absorption time, ensuring a complete charge for your batteries.
BatterySafe Mode – Protection Against Excessive Gassing
Worried about excessive gassing during high charge currents? The BatterySafe mode is here to alleviate your concerns. If you select a high charge current and absorption voltage to expedite charging, the charger will automatically limit the rate of voltage increase once the gassing voltage is reached, protecting your battery from potential damage.
Storage Mode – Minimize Maintenance and Aging
When your battery remains idle for an extended period, the Storage Mode becomes active. This mode reduces the float voltage to minimize gassing and corrosion of the positive plates, thereby extending battery life. Additionally, the charger periodically raises the voltage back to the absorption level to “equalize” the battery, preventing electrolyte stratification and sulphation, which can lead to early battery failure.
Remote On-Off and Programmable Relay
Enjoy remote control capabilities with the Phoenix Smart Charger’s remote on-off feature. It consists of two terminals, Remote H and Remote L, where you can connect a remote on-off switch or relay contact. Alternatively, by pulling terminal H high or terminal L low, you can activate the remote on-off function. Moreover, the charger’s programmable relay can be configured through the VE.Direct interface or a Bluetooth-enabled device to trigger alarms or respond to specific events.
