Altec M-Power 140 Amp Split Charge Relay VSR
If you are fitting a leisure battery into a campervan, which is to be charged by the van's alternator, you will need a split charge system. For vehicles that do not have stop/start/regenerative systems, this Altec 140 amp VSR is the ideal solution.
If you have a modern van with the stop/start/regenerative systems, you will need an intelligent DC-DC charger. See Sterling Power - Battery to Battery Split Charge System
The Altec M-Power VSR is simply wired between the main battery and the leisure battery. The relay monitors the vehicle's main battery voltage and when it reaches 13.3vdc, the relay switches on and supplies charging current to the leisure battery. When the engine is stopped and the voltage of the vehicles main battery drops below 12.8vdc the unit switches off.
It is simple to install, does not require a connection to vehicle alternator, there are only 3 connections to make, just power in, power out and a negative. It should be fused either side of the unit.
Supplied with detailed full colour instructions.
You can choose the VSR on it's own or as a complete readymade kit.
