Victron Skylla TG - Solar Battery Chargers
Skylla TG battery chargers from Victron Energy are designed for small to medium size 24V or 48V off-grid energy systems. The 24 volt model is also well suited for mobile solar applications (large RVs, trucks). The chargers accept both AC (230V) and DC (180-400V) power supply (AC-DC and DC-DC operation).
Perfect chargers for any type of battery
Charge voltage can be precisely adjusted to suit any sealed or unsealed battery system. In particular, sealed maintenance free batteries must be charged correctly in order to ensure a long service life. Over-voltage will result in excessive gassing and venting of a sealed battery. The battery will dry out and fail.
Every TG charger has a microprocessor, which accurately controls the charging in three steps. The charging process takes place in accordance with the IUoUo characteristic and charges more rapidly than other processes.
Use of TG chargers as a power supply
As a result of the perfectly stabilised output voltage, a TG charger can be used as a power supply if batteries or large buffer capacitors are not available.
Two outputs to charge 2 battery banks
The 24 volt TG chargers feature 2 isolated outputs. The second output, limited to approximately 4A and with a slightly lower output voltage, is intended to top up a starter battery (trucks, boats, RVs).
Every Skylla TG charger comes with a battery temperature sensor. When connected, charge voltage will automatically decrease with increasing battery temperature. This feature is especially recommended for sealed batteries which otherwise might be overcharged and dry out due to venting.
Battery voltage sense
In order to compensate for voltage loss due to cable resistance, TG chargers are provided with a voltage sense facility so that the battery always receives the correct charge voltage.
