MODE OF OPERATION
The X-PORT is a low loss electronic charge splitting control unit. Versions available cater for a single or dual input with either 2 or 3 outputs. The 2 in 2 out and the 2 in 3 out versions are especially useful for twin alternator based systems or systems that have more than one charging source that need to be kept separate. The charging source can be derived from any of the common sources, alternators, wind chargers, towed generators, solar cells etc., each charging source must have its own voltage control circuitry. The level of charge fed to each battery connected is determined by the charge state of each battery and the level of charge available from the charging source. N:B. (The X-PORT does not control the amount of charge to each battery bank). Where the system configuration cannot be met by a single unit, the X-PORT can be connected in parallel and / or series without problems. Even when the units are connected in series the resultant loss is still considerably lower than that exhibited by other forms of diode splitters including those fitted with SCHOTTKY diodes.
It is very important
to rate the X-PORT either equal to
or greater than the charging source which has the highest output capability.
Unit can be left connected to wind chargers and or solar cells and permanently connected to batteries without the fear of over charging provided the correct voltage dump is fitted to the wind charger and or solar cell array.
If after fitting the X-PORT you still have problems recharging your batteries from an alternator the addition of one our range of X-ALT alternator boost charge controllers may help to overcome the problem, contact our technical support help line for assistance.
