Advanced Charging Technique
Charging curves of the 3-state IUU type, with a boost phase and a floating phase.
The 3-state charging characteristic, used on boats everywhere, saves on charging time. In addition, the charger can be adapted to all types of battery thanks to its 5 integral charging curves supervised by a micro controller. Charge cycle starts on with the mains power-up of product.
Charging continues at constant current (charger Inom) until the battery reaches the maximum boost voltage. This voltage is maintained until the charging current falls to Inom/8 ~Inom/10 boost charge over short period (12 hours) from the mains power-up of product. This phase makes it possible to supply the maximum amount of energy in the least possible time.
The charger supplies just the current necessary to keep the battery at a constant and stable voltage (floating voltage). This charging mode allows 12-volt equipment to be used continuously (water pump, refrigeration, auto pilot, radio, lights, etc.) without the batteries discharging.
It means that the on-board circuit can be used while keeping the battery charge level
constant. WITHOUT BATTERY AND IN SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES, THE INVERTEK CHARGER SUPPLIES STABLE VOLTAGE.
