Battery Charger Charging Method


The Victron Centaur 12 Volt 60 Amp Battery 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/C ( 1 mV/F) per cell. A dip switch is available to select the optimum charge/float voltages for Flooded Lead-acid, Gel or AGM batteries.
