Cristec's new YPower Shore Power Unit is a 5-stage 12VDC battery charger with built-in AC power distribution and circuit protection!
How is it used?
Most boats today have an AC input from shore power that is routed to the main AC breaker and individual circuit protection breakers or fuses. From the panel, the AC power is then routed to the battery-charger input, which converts the AC power into low-voltage DC charging power. It then routes DC power through a separate battery isolator and then out to the individual batteries.
The YPower Shore Power Charger integrates all of the AC distribution system functions and automatic battery charging into one simple case. This saves time and wiring complications for the installer. If you are looking to save big while upgrading the boat to the latest technology, please contact us for more info (also available in 16A and 40A).
This unit accepts AC shore power from 90-265 VAC (47-65Hz), passes it through a main 16A automatic RCD/ELCI residual current sensing device, and then distributes it out into 3 separate AC circuits with 10A protection via 3 DPN miniature breakers. It also has a YPower 5-stage 25A automatic battery charger and a 3-output MOSFET battery isolator built-in. The battery charger is also a DC power supply that can be configured for 7 battery types (including lithium-based) or provide stabilized DC power even if there are no batteries currently installed.
