Overview


Victron Orion-Tr Smart 12/12-18A (220W) Isolated DC-DC charger with FREE SHIPPING  Australia Wide.

Victron Orion-Tr Smart 12V to 12V 18 Amp (220W) DC to DC Battery charger with galvanic isolation. 3-stage battery charge algorithm for Lead-acid, AGM & Lithium. Bluetooth Smart Built-In.

The Orion-Tr Smart DC-DC charger is a professional DC to DC adaptive 3-stage charger with Built-In Bluetooth.

For use in dual battery systems in cars, 4WDs or on boats where the 'smart' alternator and the start battery are used to charge the second/house battery. The unit can be monitored and programmed via Bluetooth and can be remotely controlled via a remote on/off switch and has an engine running detection mechanism.

The Orion Tr-Smart charger can be used in 12V systems (24V models also available) and is suitable for both lead acid and lithium batteries.Unlimited multiple units can be connected in parallel to increase output power. Suitable for high temperatures up to 55°C with a full rated output up to 40°C and rated to IP43.

Bluetooth Smart Built-In

Any Bluetooth enabled Apple or Android smart phone, tablet or other device can be used to monitor, change settings and to update the charger when new software features become available via the VictronConnect App.

Smart AlternatorCompatibility

Vehicle manufacturers are now introducing smart ECU (Engine Control Unit) controlled alternators to increase fuel efficiency and reduce emissions. Smart alternators deliver a variable output voltage and are shut down when they’re not needed. The converter has a engine running detection mechanism. This prevents the converter from discharging the starter battery when the alternator does not supply power. The Orion-Tr Smart Isolated DC-DC charger separates the starter battery from the service battery when the engine is not running.

PERFECT FOR USE IN A RANGE OF APPLICATIONS:

Adaptive 3-stage Charge Algorithm: Bulk - Absorption - Float

  • Bulk - During this stage the controller delivers as much charge current as possible to rapidly recharge the batteries.
  • Absorption - When the battery voltage reaches the absorption voltage setting, the controller switches to constant voltage mode. For lead acid batteries it is important that during shallow discharges the absorption time is kept short in order to prevent overcharging of the battery. After a deep discharge the absorption time is automatically increased to make sure that the battery is completely recharged. For lithium batteries absorption time is fixed, default 2 hours. The fixed or adaptive mode can be chosen
    on the battery settings.
  • Float - During this stage, float voltage is applied to the battery to maintain it in a fully charged state. When the battery voltage drops substantially below this level, due to a high load for example, during at least 1 minute, a new charge cycle will be triggered.
  • Flexible Charge Algorithm - Programmable charge algorithm, and eight pre-programmed battery settings are configurable within the VictronConnect app.
  • Screw terminals: No special tools needed for installation.
  • Input fuse: (not replaceable)

***Victron DC-DC Chargers: Non-Isolated vs Isolated:
The main difference with an isolated DC-DC charger is the connection to each battery as there is only one negative connection to the battery. Plus, there is no internal connection between the negatives in the battery. Some systems require an isolated DC to DC charger, this can be some of the reasons:

  • Typically, marine application with limited corrosion
  • Decrease noise from one battery system that will affect another battery system

Either unit can be used for systems that don’t require isolation, but the non-isolated requires one less wire to be installed. 

One example of a non-isolated system is an automotive system, such as both batteries are negative and connected to the chassis of a vehicle. The system is non-isolated but either unit will suit.

No Solar Regulator in the DC-DC Charger:
Victron have chosen to separate the charger and the solar regulators, these are the advantages:

  • You can choose the correct solar regulator to match your panels with the best efficiency for the solar charging.
  • The solar can be charging into the battery system simultaneously with the onboard vehicle charging
  • Without a solar regulator, the DC-DC charger will stay cheaper
  • Bluetooth Smart Enabled: Any Bluetooth enabled smart phone, tablet or other device can be used to monitor, to change settings and to update the charger when new software features become available

  • Fully Programmable - Battery charge algorithm (configurable) or fixed output. - Smart alternator compatibility: engine running detection mechanism.

  • Suitable for a wide range of battery types and sizes. No special tools needed for installation.

Victron Orion-Tr Smart 12/12-18A (220W) Isolated DC-DC charger:

All you need to do is plug it in, clip it on and turn it on. That’s it. Set and forget. They will never overcharge and are compatible with common automotive batteries including lithium (LiFeP04). ​ 

  • REMOTE ON/OFF 

    Use the remote function to enable and disable the converter remotely with the remote on/off connector or using the VictronConnect app. Typical use cases include a user operated hard wired switch and automatic control by for example a Battery Management System.

  • ELECTRONIC PROTECTION 

    Over-temperature protection and power derating when temperature is high. Overload protected. Short circuit protected. Connector over-temperature protection. An unlimited number of units can be connected in parallel to increase charging amps.

  • SAFE & LIGHTWEIGHT 

    Can be Paralleled to increase output current. An unlimited number of units can be connected in parallel.

  • LCD POWER READOUTS

    Battery meter makes it easy to see the status of your battery

  • EASY TO USE

    A remote on/off switch or relay contact can be connected to a two-pole connector. Alternatively, the H terminal (right) of the two-pole connector can be switched to battery plus, or the L terminal (left) of the two-pole connector can be switched to battery minus (or the chassis of a vehicle, for example).

     

  • TEMPERATURE PROTECTION 

    The output current will reduce at high ambient temperature.

  • IP43 Protection

    When installed with the screw terminals oriented downwards.

Either unit can be used for systems that don’t require isolation, but the non-isolated requires one less wire to be installed. 
One example of a non-isolated system is an automotive system, such as both batteries are negative and connected to the chassis of a vehicle. The system is non-isolated but either unit will suit.
