Victron Energy’s new range of Orion IP67 DC-DC Converters have been specially designed for use in exposed applications, including the harsh marine environment.
Capable of converting 24 volt DC to 12 volt DC, the new range of Victron DC-DC Converters are completely encapsulated. With a cast aluminium case and all electronics protectively moulded in resin, the units are waterproof (to IP67 standard), shockproof and ignition protected.
The Victron DC-DC Converters come with extra long 1.8-metre input and output cables meaning that, in most cases, there will be no need to use any intermediate cabling or interconnections.
The Victron DC-DC Converters have a wide 15-40 volt input range and stable output voltage even during a surge or voltage drop caused by other equipment on the same circuit. They are available in three current output sizes: 4A, 10A and 17A.
Thanks to their in-built over-heating protection, the Victron DC-DC Converters can also be used in hot environments such as engine rooms. In addition, all models with adjustable outlets can also be used as battery chargers; for example: to charge a dedicated 12 volt accessory battery in an otherwise 24 volt system.
The new Victron Orion IP67 DC-DC Converters are available nationwide through Lusty & Blundell’s network of marine dealers. Product and dealer information is available from Lusty and Blundell on (09) 415-8303.
