Centaur Chargers

The Victron Centaur Charger features auto-ranging input covering 90-265VAC 50/60Hz input meaning they can be used anywhere in the world.

Crucially, and unlike many other products that state universal input, the Centaur Charger range will maintain full output power within the entire specified range. Other features include fully automatic three stage charge characteristic that ensures batteries are fully charged every time and three isolated charge outputs for multi battery configurations to suit the majority of typical installations.

The Victron Centaur Charger charges at bulk rate until the output has reduced to 70% of the rated Amps, at which a 4 hour timer begins. After the timed period the charger switches to float rate. An internal temperature sensor is used to compensate the charge voltage with – 2 mV/ºC (– 1 mV/ºF) per cell. A DIP switch is available to select the optimum charge/float voltages for Flooded Lead-acid, Gel or AGM batteries.

The Victron Centaur Charger has three isolated outputs to simultaneously charge 3 battery banks. Each output is capable to supply the full rated current.

All Victron Centaur Charger models will operate without any adjustment needed over a 90 to 265 Volt input voltage range, whether 50 Hz or 60 Hz. The chargers also accept a 90-400 V DC supply

Want to improve battery charging? Why not take a look at the Victron Energy Battery Sense which measures voltage at the battery bank terminals, errors arising from voltage-loss due to cable resistance are avoided – guaranteeing the correct charge-voltage.
