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. Designed to meet the requirements of both CE for Europe and UL for the United States, the Centaur model range features auto-ranging input covering 90-265VAC 50/60Hz input meaning they can be used anywhere in the world. Crucially, and unlike other products that state universal input, the Centaur range will maintain full output power within the entire specified range. The Centaur model will also work on 90-400VDC input, making it a perfect Charging DC-DC Converter in a Diesel Electric system.
Completely encapsulated: waterproof, shockproof and ignition protected
Water, oil or dirt will not damage the Blue Power charger. The casing is made of cast aluminium and the electronics are moulded in resin.
Protected against overheating
Can be used in a hot environment such as a machine room. Output current will reduce as temperature increases up to 60°C, but the Blue Power charger will not fail.
Automatic three stage charging
Once the absorption voltage has been reached, the Blue Power charger will switch to float charge 2 hours after the charge current has reduced to a low break point current (see specifications), or after a 20 hour absorption period. The battery is therefore effectively protected against overcharging and can remain permanently connected to the charger. The charger will automatically reset and start a new charge cycle after interruption of the AC supply or after reduction of the output voltage to 12V resp. 24V due to a DC load.
