This device performs a split charging function between starter and auxiliary batteries, whilst ensuring a full charge of the auxiliary batteries by electronic amplification of the auxiliary output.

Suitable for most American Vehicles and most Marine and other engines with an auxiliary battery bank which needs enhanced charging.

NOT suitable for modern vehicles/vans sold in Europe (Ford, VW, Merc, Renault, Citroen etc) and Japanese vehicles which have the new Euro Regenerative braking control systems fitted to the vehicle (so called 'smart' alternators'). For these vehicles you must use the Battery to Battery charger range of products.

The output from one (or two) alternators can be connected to the device input, and 2 isolated outputs are provided. The first output gives standard voltage and charge for the starter battery. The second output is amplified and electronically controlled to produce an output similar to that of a sophisticated mains charger. The voltage is taken to a higher level initially before returning to a safe float level.

Fitting is simple and requires no alteration to the alternator(s).   Therefore no alternator warranty issues.

Model AB1280 is 12v input and can handle alternator outputs of up to 80amps.

Optional remote control available - must be ordered separately pt.no. ABNRC

Size 250mm long x 180mm wide x 70mm deep Packed weight approx 2.5kg
