Cyrix 24Volt 400Amp Microprocessor Controlled Battery Combiner
No voltage loss
The Cyrix battery combiner is a microprocessor controlled heavy duty relay that automatically connects batteries in parallel when one of them has reached a preset voltage (indicating that the battery is being charged), and disconnects when the voltage decreases below float level (indicating that one or more batteries are being discharged).
Prioritizing the starter battery
In a typical setup the alternator is directly connected to the starter battery. The accessory battery, and possibly also a bow thruster and other batteries are each connected to the starter battery by Cyrix battery combiners. When a Cyrix senses that the starter battery has reached its connect voltage it will engage, to allow for parallel charging of the other batteries.
Bidirectional voltage sensing
The Cyrix senses the voltage of both connected batteries. It will therefore also engage if for example the accessory battery is being charged by a battery charger.
Parallel connection in case of emergency
The Cyrix can also be engaged with a switch to connect batteries in parallel manually. This is especially useful in case of emergency when the starter battery is discharged or damaged.
- No voltage loss so that the output voltage of alternators or battery chargers does not need to be increased.
- Cyrix battery separators are an excellent replacement for diode isolators
