REDARC Charge Equalisers are designed to manage a high current 12 volt supply in a 24 volt vehicle. REDARC Charge Equalisers allow 12 volt power to be tapped from the centre of a series-connected, two battery, 24 volt DC electrical system while still ensuring an equal charge across the two batteries.
REDARC Charge Equalisers operate in a series-connected, two battery, 24 volt DC, negative earth system. The output voltage of the REDARC Charge Equaliser is regulated to half the input voltage. 12 volt power is available from the lower battery in a 24 volt system via the centre tap (bridging link).
Because of their high peak current capability and fast transient response, REDARC Charge Equalisers are ideally suited to loads requiring a safe, clean and stable 12 volt supply. The advantage of a charge equaliser over a standard voltage reducer is that power is drawn from a battery rather than through a current limited device, allowing a much larger peak current draw.
Range: CE25 (25A), CE40S2 (40A), CE3 (3A), CE10 (10A), CE60 (60A).
