High Temperature Protected
The output current will reduce at high ambient temperature.
When installed with the screw terminals oriented downwards.
No special tools needed for installation.
Smart Alternator Compatibility
The engine is running detection is based on the voltage of the starter battery. The charger is not always able to measure the exact starter battery voltage because of voltage drop over the input cable. The voltage drop is determined by variables like current, cable length and cable gauge. The “engine on detection sequence” will perform periodic tests to determine the exact starter battery voltage during charging.
The test result determines if the engine is running and charging can be enabled. This feature is only active in charger mode and when “engine detection override” is not activated. In converter mode the “input voltage lock-out” determines when the output is active.
