Yet another brilliantly designed product from Projecta.
This IDC25 Intelli-Charge unit is the most advanced of its type currently available on the Australian market.
The SMART 3 stage DC & Solar Battery Charger allows you to charge your 12V second/auxiliary deep cycle battery on the go, simultaneously from either solar or alternator (9-32V) inputs. The IDC25 is shock, vibration and dust proof and can happily reside under your bonnet where temperatures can get very high.
The IDC25 DC-DC charger is purposely designed for charging auxiliary batteries. It includes all the features needed to maintain the auxiliary battery to its optimum condition and to prolong the battery life.
The IDC25 converts your vehicle's 12VDC/24VDC alternator power to the voltage level allowing your batteries to be fully charged, prolonging battery life and reliability. With the latest synchronous switching technology, efficiency of IDC25 exceeds 94% at typical full load condition.
DUAL INPUT OPERATION
Allows two energy sources to power the IDC25 simultaneously. Solar input takes precedence if solar and alternator inputs are present. When solar input cannot provide enough energy to the load, the IDC25 will draw power from solar and alternator simultaneously.
The IDC25 utilises sophisticated MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking) solar regulator technology. MPPT maximises the power generated from the solar panels to the auxiliary battery.
3 SUPERIOR 3 STAGE CHARGING
Using high speed microcontroller and proprietary charging algorithm, the IDC25 delivers a sophisticated 3 stage charging process resulting in a faster and more powerful charge, ideal for deep cycle batteries. The first stage, bulk (constant current), charges the battery faster while the second stage, absorption (constant voltage), ensures the battery is thoroughly charged. The final stage, float, maintains the battery at a safe voltage allowing it to be maintained and ready for use indefinitely.
The IDC25 supports GEL, AGM, WET and CALCIUM batteries. If the calcium battery mode is selected, periodic equalisation will be provided to the calcium battery for removing acid stratification.
The IDC25 can be wired to the vehicle's ignition allowing it to operate only when the ignition is turned on. The ignition connection also activates the lower input voltage operation to suit vehicles with smart (variable voltage) alternators.
The IDC25 is supplied with a 2 metre temperature sensor. The sensor monitors the battery temperature and adjusts (compensates) the charger's output to prevent overcharging. This is ideal for batteries used in warmer climates or environments.
REMOTE CHARGER STATUS INDICATION
A pink wire is provided for driving an external panel mount LED indicator (Eg Narva P/No. 62090BL) to show the status of the charger. It shows whether the auxiliary battery is on charge (Solid Colour) or the charger is in a fault condition (Flashing).
The IDC25 will not start charging the battery (no output) unless the load is securely connected. It prevents the output leads from sparking due to accidental short circuit making the charger safer to use around batteries.
Reverse Connection Protection
Reverse connection on input and output terminals does not damage IDC25 internal circuit. The IDC25 detects reverse connection condition and indicates whether input or output connection is reversed.
Over and Under Voltage Protection
The charger will automatically shut down if there is an over voltage or under voltage problem.
Over Temperature Protection
The charger will lower its output current if the temperature of the unit begins to overheat.
