Re: Xantrex Link 2000 acceptance voltage?

The ACR I have but yet to install is the SI-ACR from Blue Sea. Where the house bank is now is too small for the 6 Trojans. Going to see if I can build a robust battery box in the starboard lazarette today that will hold them all and move the start battery to where the house us now.

The alternator that is on the boat is 150 amp with an external regulator hard set to 14.4. Boat came with a brand new spare of each which is a good thing since the regulator blew up on our first outing.

Once I get my solar and wind upgrades completed I hope I rarely will need engine charging.

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.
