The X-SPLIT now in its 22nd year is a range of multi option ULTRA LOW LOSS electronic devices which can be called by various names such as-: charge splitter, split charger or ultra low loss diode splitters (though they do not employ diodes) and are suitable for a voltage range 6 - 30 volts dc and a charging current up to 120 Amps (negative earth system only). For higher current versions (click here) for our X-PORT range. Suitable for most types of alternators, including battery sensed versions, normal battery chargers with or without an incorporated multi output facility, on - board auxiliary generators such as solar cell arrays, wind generators and towed generators etc. Due to the very low loss characteristics they are ideal for use with solar cells and wind generators where virtually all the developed power is transferred from charging source into the batteries. Over 16000 units have been sold world wide and when used with our X-ALT (click on the blue hyper link to view details) range of alternator regulator/charge controllers range the combination can provide what could be the most efficient split charge control system available any where in the world.
Prices quoted are UK list and are exclusive of carriage and VAT.
Contact sales office for carriage charges.
Payment is accepted by most major credit / debit cards (excluding Diners Int & American Express.) for which there is an additional £3-00 administration charge.
Due to manufacturing techniques, the X-PORT represents a better buy for
versions marked thus *.
For current ratings higher then 120 Amps see the (click here for quick access) 'X-PORT' range.
The standard units supplied are battery sensed
which can be used on all types of charging sources. See installation section.
The rating of the X-SPLIT is dependent on the capability of the charging source, not the size of batteries.i.e. for a 70 Amp alternator feeding a 400 Amp/Hr battery bank a 90 Amp unit will be required.
When used in conjunction with battery sensed battery chargers some form of voltage feedback will be required.
We recommend that the X-SPLIT is used in conjunction with one our range of alternator regulator/boost/charge controllers the X-ALT 'Buccaneer', 'Skipper' or 'Captain'
We can advise the best method to split charge your battery banks if you have a non standard system.
