The Buck-Boost DC-DC Converter is a DC-DC converter for charging a 12/24V service battery in vehicles with an intelligent dynamo. Since, when the engine is running, these dynamos (powered by the on-board electronics of Euro 5 and 6 engines) do not always emit the correct charging current, a DC-DC converter is essential for charging the service battery properly.
‘Engine running’ detection system
Deep discharge of the vehicle's starting battery is avoided by a built-in ‘engine running’ detection system. Instead of this detection system, the converter can also be activated by means of a programmable input (D+, CAN bus or (+)15 connection).
The converter can be fully programmed by means of a simple and user-friendly PC application. (USB type A male to USB type B male cable needed)
One product for 12V, 24V and 12/24V systems
The converter can be programmed to charge a 12V or a 24V auxiliary battery from either a 12V or a 24V alternator and starter battery.
Charge current and input current limiter
The output current is determined by the following factors:
- The maximum charge current setting.
- The maximum input current setting.
- The maximum operating temperature limit of the converter.
