THIS is a remarkable, new cost and time-saving device is called the DC-Hub. Imagine a simple, extremely robust DC input/output fuse box combination board that reduces workshop time by a large factor, but also does away with the need for specialist expertise when building DC electric setups. All components are wired to this single central hub, including AC chargers, solar panels and DC-chargers. And from the same unit are wires run to all accessories, such as fridges, lights, compressors and more. And, do this without the need of crimps, lugs, shrinks or expertise. All the time consuming works is done for you!
If you are building and installing DC electrics into 4WDs, RVs, boats of all sizes, and even dwellings that run on solar-charged DC setups, this is a marvellous, cost saving and quality-enhancing device.
Featuring a Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) solar regulator, the BCDC1225D will charge from both solar and the alternator simultaneously. And, with built-in ‘Green Power Priority’ it will select solar charging first, meaning less load on the alternator.
Suitable for 12 or 24-volt vehicle systems, the unit will also work with either standard or variable/smart alternators.
The BCDC1225D features the same patented charging profiles as it’s predecessor along with a new lithium charging profile making the unit suitable for charging AGM, Gel, Standard Lead Acid, Calcium and LiFePO4 batteries, perfect for pairing with a REDARC Lithium battery.
For most applications, the BCDC1225D is suitable for battery bank sizes of 75-200AH. For higher capacity needs of over 200AH, REDARC recommends the BCDC1240D.
