Adaptive 4-Stage Charge Characteristic: Bulk - Absorption - Float - Storage
The Phoenix Charger features a microprocessor controlled 'adaptive' feature will automatically optimize the process relative to the way the battery is being used.
The Right Amount Of Charge: Variable Absorption Time
When only shallow discharges occur (a yacht connected to shore power, for example) the absorption time is kept short in order to prevent overcharging of the battery. After a deep discharge, the absorption time is automatically increased to make sure that the battery is completely recharged.
Preventing Damage Due To Excessive Gassing: The Battery Safe Mode
If, in order to quickly charge a battery, a high charge current in combination with a high absorption voltage has been chosen. The Phoenix charger will prevent damage due to excessive gassing by automatically limiting the rate of voltage increase once the gassing voltage has been reached.
Less Maintenance And Aging When The Battery Is Not In Use: The Storage Mode
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 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 sulphation, a major cause of early battery failure.
To Increase Battery Life: Temperature Compensation
Every Phoenix 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 and/or when important fluctuations of the battery temperature are expected.
Battery Voltage Sense
In order to compensate for voltage loss due to cable resistance, Phoenix chargers are provided with a voltage sense facility, so that the battery always receives the correct charge voltage.
Universal 90-265V AC Input Voltage Range And Also Suitable For The DC Supply
The chargers will accept a 90-400V DC supply.
Every Phoenix Charger is ready to communicate with a computer through its RS-485 data port. Together with Victron's VE. Configure software, which can be downloaded free of charge from Victron's website and the data link MK2-USB, all parameters of the chargers can be customized.
