Victron Centaur Battery Charger - 12 Volt - 60 Amp
DescriptionVICTRON Centaur 12V 60A
Comes pre-fitted with 1.5m of 13mm battery leads with 8mm lugs and 2m AC lead with 3pin 10A plug.
The new Centaur range of battery chargers from Victron Energy have been designed to be a true world-wide product. Universal compliance and input/output specifications are cornerstone characteristics of the new range from the established Dutch manufacturer. The fact that the same product is suitable for any boat, regardless of the intended market or where the boat will be taken, is a great advantage to the boat builder and the boat owner in equal measure.
Conscious of the price sensitivity in this competitive market, a single model range for all markets also means more competitive costs. Without compromising Victron Energy brand qualities the Centaur is comprehensive, competitive and compatible wherever in the world they might be used.
Aluminium epoxy powder coated cases with drip shield and stainless steel fixings withstand the rigours of an adverse environment: heat, humidity and salt air. Circuit boards are protected with an acrylic coating for maximum corrosion resistance. Temperature sensors ensure that power components will always operate within specified limits, if needed by automatic reduction of output current under extreme environmental conditions.
Universal 90 to 265 Volt input voltage range
All models will operate without any adjustment needed over a 90 to 265 Volt input voltage range, whether 50 Hz or 60 Hz.
Three outputs that each can supply the full output current
Three isolated outputs to simultaneously charge 3 battery banks. Each output is capable to supply the full rated current.
Three stage charging, with temperature compensation
The Centaur charges at bulk rate until the output has reduced to 70 % of the rated Amps, at which a 4 hour timer begins. After the timed period the charger switches to float rate. An internal temperature sensor is used to compensate the charge voltage with - 2 mV/_C (. 1 mV/_F) per cell. A dip switch is available to select the optimum charge/float voltages for Flooded Lead-acid, Gel or AGM batteries.
