Re: Xantrex Link 2000 acceptance voltage?
Few thoughts. Does the Link 2000 really control the charger, or just monitor voltage and amps? I know that Xantrex makes their own remote, where you set battery type, which is what varies the charge voltage profile. I assume this could be done on the charger itself too. The low Absorb charge voltage makes me think it's set to Gel type, which could very well have been what the original manufacturer bank was.
To me the term acceptance refers to the amount of amps being taken up by the batteries. This is the best way for a charger to know when to switch from Absorb to Float, but I don't think the Xantrex can do that. My old one couldn't. It just ran under Absorb for a period of time, then switched. That never properly charged the bank.
