REDARC Dual Input 40A In-Vehicle DC Battery Charger
You’re reading this on an electronic device right now, unless you printed this entire site out, which is odd. But we digress, you rely on electronics, at home, or on the road, or off-road. REDARC has been building some of the most robust, adaptable, electronic control systems for adventurers. For example; the REDARC 40A In-Vehicle DC Battery Charger. This is the heart of your dual battery management system, with inputs for additional power in such as solar.
The REDARC BCDC1240D is a 12V, 40A In-vehicle DC to DC Battery Charger designed to keep your auxiliary battery charged when driving or with portable solar panels when parked. It uses multi-stage DC-DC charging, a system that allows optimum charging levels for your auxiliary battery. The DC to DC battery charger works from a wide operating range (9-32V) and provides the option of charging from both 12V and 24V vehicle systems. Additional features include a Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) solar regulator, which allows the maximum amount of power to be delivered from your solar panels to your auxiliary battery.
This Solar Ready smart charger also acts a dual battery isolator. If the voltage gets too low, the start battery is protected. It's fan free creating a quiet operation, is fully sealed, and has multiple levels of fault protection. The SEMA Global Media Awarding winning BCDC1240D is perfect for charging AGM, Gel, Standard Lead Acid, Calcium, and LiFePO4 batteries. The in-vehicle dual battery range keeps your auxiliary battery banks charged to their optimal levels and lets you continue your adventure uninterrupted.
This DC-DC battery charger with solar input has been proven to work in all types of terrains, including deep water crossings, and stands up against extreme heat (up to 176 deg F). It's fully sealed against the risk of infiltration from water and dust and will hold up to the adventure at hand. It's designed to maximize the performance and life of your auxiliary battery and is suited for battery bank sizes of 200AH and above in most applications.
