PROJECTA IDC LITHIUM DC/SOLAR BATTERY
The IDC25L DC-DC charger is purposely designed for charging auxiliary batteries.
It includes all the features needed to maintain the auxiliary battery to its optimum
condition and to prolong the battery life.
The IDC25L converts your vehicle’s 12VDC/24VDC alternator power to the voltage
level allowing your batteries to be fully charged, prolonging battery life and
reliability. With the latest synchronous switching technology, efficiency of IDC25L
exceeds 94% at typical full load condition.
DUAL INPUT OPERATION
Allows two energy sources to power the IDC25L simultaneously. Solar input takes
precedence if solar and alternator inputs are present. When solar input cannot provide
enough energy to the load, the IDC25L will draw power from solar and alternator
The IDC25L utilises sophisticated MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking) solar
regulator technology. MPPT maximises the power generated from the solar panels
to the auxiliary battery.
POWER SUPPLY (CONSTANT VOLTAGE OF 13.8 VOLTS)
This sets the charge in power supply mode giving a constant voltage of 13.8VDC.
This mode is best used where appliances are drawing power from the battery,
for example a fridge.
Power supply mode can also be used to reactivate a lithium iron phosphate battery
which is on internal low voltage disconnect mode. Currently, most high capacity
12V lithium iron phosphate batteries have an in-built battery management system
(BMS). When you discharge a 12V lithium iron phosphate battery to very low output
voltage, it will activate the battery’s internal low voltage disconnect protection –
the battery will be disconnected from the charger and load. However, in charge
mode, the IDC25L will only start charging if it detects the battery is connected.
To overcome this, set the IDC25L to power supply mode until the battery internal
low voltage disconnect protection is deactivated.
SUPERIOR 5 STAGE CHARGING
Using high speed microcontroller and proprietary charging algorithm, the IDC25L
delivers a sophisticated 5 stage charging process resulting in a faster and more
powerful charge, ideal for deep cycle batteries. The first two stages increase battery
life by gently starting to charge the battery at 5% and 25% of the bulk charge
respectively. The third stage, bulk (constant current), charges the battery much faster
while the fourth stage, absorption (constant voltage), ensures the battery is thoroughly
charged. The final stage, float, maintains the battery at a safe voltage allowing it to
be maintained and ready for use indefinitely.
The ignition connection activates the lower input voltage operation to suit vehicles
with smart (variable voltage) alternators.
The IDC25L is supplied with a 2 metre temperature sensor. The sensor monitors
the battery temperature and adjusts (compensates) the charger’s output to
prevent overcharging. This is ideal for batteries used in warmer/cooler climates or
REMOTE CHARGER STATUS INDICATION
A pink wire is provided for driving an external panel mount LED indicator (Eg Narva
P/No. 62090BL) to show the status of the charger. It shows whether the auxiliary
battery is on charge (Solid Colour) or the charger is in a fault condition (Flashing).
The IDC25L will not start charging the battery (no output) unless the load is securely
connected. It prevents the output leads from sparking due to accidental short circuit
making the charger safer to use around batteries.
Reverse Connection Protection
Reverse connection on input and output terminals does not damage IDC25L internal
circuit. The IDC25L detects reverse connection condition and indicates whether input
or output connection is reversed.
Over and Under Voltage Protection
The charger will automatically shut down if there is an over voltage or under
Over Temperature Protection
The charger will lower its output current if the temperature of the unit begins

SolarKing lithium batteries are the future of battery storage. Lithium batteries are much lighter than traditional lead acid batteries and deliver unrivalled cycle life, more than 4 times more cycles compared to lead acid batteries.
Perfect for use in caravans, marine, camping and home storage applications. The batteries are sealed with a built in battery management system for safety protection.
If you are replacing an existing deep cycle lead acid battery you can continue to use your existing battery charging system as the built in battery management system with do the rest for you. You will also notice that lithium batteries charge more efficiently than lead acid batteries so the recovery will be much quicker.
This model SolarKing lithium battery use’s active cell balancing technology to balance the internal battery cells whilst not only charging but also whilst discharging. This assist’s in keeping the battery at full capacity. Our balancing system is high power and brings any internal cell in balance back in-line quickly.
