This is super light, compact, versatile, and inexpensive and is destined to be a best-seller. It has Bluetooth built-in so it can be programmed from your phone or tablet using Victron Connect. Its VE Direct port means you can connect it to a Cerbo GX. Its remote port means you can control it from a BMS. Its relay port means you can control external devices from it (only while connected to AC power). It has a 6-stage charge algorithm with storage mode for conventional batteries and a 3-stage algorithm for Lithium batteries. Its IP rating gives it limited protection from sprayed water.
Bluetooth Smart built-in
The wireless solution to set up, monitor, control, and update Phoenix Smart IP43 Chargers.
Phoenix Smart (1+1): two outputs to charge 2 battery banks
The second output, limited to approximately 3 A and with a slightly lower output voltage, is intended to top up a starter battery.
Automatic voltage compensation
The charger compensates for voltage drop over the DC cabling by slightly increasing output voltage when the DC current increases.
Adaptive 6-stage charge algorithm: bulk– absorption – recondition – float – storage – refresh
The Phoenix Smart Charger features our well-known ‘adaptive’ battery management system that can be preset to suit different types of batteries.
The right amount of charge: variable absorption time
When only shallow discharges occur (a yacht connected to shore power for example) the absorption time is kept short in order to prevent overcharging of the battery.
Preventing damage due to excessive gassing: the BatterySafe mode
If, in order to quickly charge a battery, a high charge current in combination with a high absorption voltage has been chosen, the charger will prevent damage due to excessive gassing by automatically limiting the rate of voltage increase once the gassing voltage has been reached.
Less maintenance and aging when the battery is not in use: the Storage Mode
The Storage Mode kicks in whenever the battery has not been subjected to discharge for 24 hours. In the Storage Mode float voltage is reduced to 2,2 V/cell (13,2 V for a 12 V battery) to minimize gassing and corrosion of the positive plates.
Also charges Li-ion (LiFePO₄) batteries
Charger on-off control can be implemented by connecting a relay or open collector optocoupler output from a Li-ion BMS to the remote on/off the port.
Fully programmable charge algorithm
The charge algorithm can be programmed with the help of Bluetooth or the VE. Direct interface. Three preprogrammed algorithms can be selected with the mode button.
Optional external battery voltage and temperature sensing via Bluetooth
A Smart Battery Sense, SmartShunt, or a BMV-712 Smart Battery Monitor can be used to communicate battery voltage and temperature to one or more Phoenix Smart IP43 Chargers via VE. Smart Networking.
The remote on/off consists of two terminals: Remote H and Remote L. A remote on/off switch or relay contact can be connected between H and L.
For a wired data connection to a GX device such as the Cerbo GX, PC, or other devices. Also enables Instant Readout functionality via VictronConnect remotely from VRM. Please see the VictronConnect app.
Can be programmed using the VE. Direct interface or a Bluetooth-enabled device to trip on an alarm or other events.
