Phoenix Battery Charger
www.victronenergy.com
Adaptive 4-stage charge characteristic: bulk – absorption – oat – storage
The Phoenix charger features a microprocessor controlled ‘adaptive’ battery management system that can be
preset to suit different types of batteries. The ‘adaptive’ feature will automatically optimise the process relative
to the way the battery is being used.
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. After a deep discharge the absorption time is
automatically increased to make sure that the battery is completely recharged.
Preventing damage due to excessive gassing: the BatterySafe mode (see g. 2 below)
If, in order to quickly charge a battery, a high charge current in combination with a high absorption voltage has
been chosen, the Phoenix charger will prevent damage due to excessive gassing by automatically limiting the
rate of voltage increase once the gassing voltage has been reached (see the charge curve between 14,4 V and
15,0 V in g. 2 below).

Less maintenance and aging when the battery is not in use: the Storage mode (see g. 1 & 2 below)
The storage mode kicks in whenever the battery has not been subjected to discharge during 24 hours. In the
storage mode oat voltage is reduced to 2,2 V/cell (13,2 V for 12 V battery) to minimise gassing and corrosion of
the positive plates. Once a week the voltage is raised back to the absorption level to ‘equalize’ the battery. This
feature prevents strati cation of the electrolyte and sulphation, a major cause of early battery failure.
To increase battery life: temperature compensation
Every Phoenix charger comes with a battery temperature sensor. When connected, charge voltage will
automatically decrease with increasing battery temperature. This feature is especially recommended for sealed
batteries and/or when important uctuations of battery temperature are expected.
Battery voltage sense
In order to compensate for voltage loss due to cable resistance, Phoenix chargers are provided with a voltage
sense facility so that the battery always receives the correct charge voltage.
Universal 90-265V AC input voltage range and also suitable for DC supply (AC-DC and DC-DC operation)
The chargers will accept a 90-400V DC supply.
Computer interface
Every Phoenix Charger is ready to communicate with a computer through its RS-485 data port. Together with
our VECon gure software, which can be downloaded free of charge from our website www.victronenergy.com
and the data link MK1b (see accessories), all parameters of the chargers can be customised.

Battery Alarm
An excessively high or low battery
voltage is indicated by an audible
and visual alarm, and potential free
contacts.
Phoenix Charger Control
The PCC panel provides remote
control and monitoring of the
charge process with LED indication
of the charger status. In addition,
the remote panel also offers output
current adjustment that can be used
to limit the output current and thus
the power drawn from the AC
supply. This is particularly useful
when operating the charger from
limited shore power or small
gensets. The panel can also be used
to change the battery charging
parameters.
The brightness of the LED’s is
automatically reduced during night
time.
Connection to the charger is with a
standard UTP – cable.
BMV 600S Battery Monitor
The BMV 600S Battery Monitor
features an advanced
microprocessor control system
combined with high resolution
measuring systems for battery
voltage and charge/discharge
current. Besides this, the software
includes complex calculation
algorithms, like Peukert’s formula, to
exactly determine the state of
charge of the battery. The BMV 600S
selectively displays battery voltage,
current, consumed Ah or time to go.
