Description

Victron Energy Argo Diode Battery Isolators

Diode battery isolators allow simultaneous charging of two or more batteries from one alternator, without connecting the batteries together. Discharging the accessory battery, for example, will not result in also discharging the starter battery. The Argo battery isolators feature a low voltage drop thanks to the use of Schottky diodes: at low current, the voltage drop is approximately 0.3 V and at the rated output approximately 0.45 V.

All models are fitted with a compensation diode that can be used to slightly increase the output voltage of the alternator. This compensates for the voltage drop over the diodes in the isolator.

Please ask for specialist advice when installing a diode isolator. Simply inserting the isolator in the cabling between the alternator and the batteries will slightly reduce charge voltage. The result can be that batteries are not charged to the full 100% and age prematurely.

Alternator Energize Input

Some alternators need DC voltage on the B+ output to start charging. Obviously, DC will be present when the alternator is directly connected to a battery. Inserting a Diode or FET splitter will, however, prevent any return voltage/current from the batteries to the B+, and the alternator will not start.

The new ‘AC’ diode isolators feature a special current limited energize input that will power the B+ when the engine run/stop switch is closed.

Brand

Victron Energy

Victron Energy is a global company with a reputation for technical innovation, reliability, and build quality. Victron products, which excel at efficiently combining two or more distinct power sources, are recognised internationally as the professional choice for resilient energy storage systems. Victron products include sinewave inverters, sinewave inverters/chargers, battery chargers, DC/DC converters, transfer switches, battery monitors and more. Victron has a strong presence in the off-grid market, where robust performance and reliability are at a premium, while the improved feature set, standards compliance and lower production costs position well for grid-connected applications, especially in larger projects, such as distributed energy storage systems that can both supply energy to individual houses and, collectively, deliver energy to the grid as an on-demand ‘virtual generator. Victron Energy BV is a 43-year-old company based in the Netherlands that has established a global reputation as amanufacturer of robust and reliable components for autonomous power generation and solar systems. With its MultiPlus, Quattro, ECOMulti and now the new MultiPlus-II inverter/chargers, the company continually innovates to deliver value into the energy storage sector.
