8ZED Projecta DC20 3 Stage Automatic DC to DC Battery Charger 12V 20A
This compact unit utilizes the vehicles power system which then delivers an intelligent 3 stage charge to an auxiliary battery.
Capable of stepping up from as low as 9V input up to 14.4V which makes it ideal for charging deep cycle batteries and secondary batteries in Caravans,4WDs and motorhomes.
The DC20 charger overcomes the problem of voltage drop associated with long cables commonlyused with auxiliary battery installations. By ‘stepping up’ the dropped voltage using switchmodecharging technology, the DC20 delivers a full three stage charge to your auxiliary battery.
Using the latest switchmode technology, the DC20 converts your vehicle’s 12VDC alternator powerup to 14.4VDC allowing your batteries to be fully charged, prolonging battery life and reliability.Switchmode charging uses electronic components allowing the charger to be lightweight andcompact without sacrificing on performance.
SUPERIOR 3 STAGE CHARGING
Using electronic control, the charger delivers 3 stage charging resulting in a faster and morepowerful charge, making it ideal for deep cycle batteries. The first stage, bulk (constant current),charges the battery faster while the second stage, absorption (constant voltage), ensures thebattery is thoroughly charged. The final stage, float, maintains the battery at a safe voltageallowing it to be maintained and ready for use indefinitely.
The DC20 can be wired to the vehicle’s ignition allowing it to operate only when the ignition isturned on. Alternatively you can connect the ignition and input terminals for continuous operation.
Spark-Free ProtectionPrevents the output leads from sparking due to accidental short circuit making the chargersafer to use around batteries.Reverse Connection ProtectionFuse protected to prevent damage to internal electronics in case of accidental reverse connection.Over and Under Voltage ProtectionThe charger will automatically shut down if there is an over voltage or under voltage problem.Over Temperature ProtectionThe charger will lower its output current if the temperature of the unit begins to overheat.
The battery charger side extrusions allow for quick and easy mounting for permanent installations.
The easy to read LED panel displays a range of information to ensure safe operation and to informyou of the battery status.
