Battery SettingsQuestion

Postby bjrichar on Tue Jun 10, 2014 8:51 am

Good Morning,
When I installed my SAR V3 you had suggested using the Concorde AGM setting for the Northstar/Energy1 AGM batteries I have. My charging system uses two Ample Power #4023 alternators, a DAC with the SAR V3 regulator along with Isolation Eliminators for the engine and generator start batteries. The manufacture of the batteries documentation gives charging voltages of 14.7 VDC @ 77*F for absorption and 13.6 VDC @ 77*F for float. Reading your responses to other similar questions, I wonder if I should be using the Thick Plate Liquid setting? Thank you.
Regards, Byron

Yes, that would be better for those settings.

Thank you very much. I will closly monitor the charging and the batteries with the EMON after changing the settings.
