Options

The Cyrix battery combiner from Victron Energy is a microprocessor controlled heavy duty relay that automatically connects batteries in parallel when one of them has reached a preset voltage, and disconnects when the voltage decreases below float level (indicating that one or more batteries are being charged).

More details

More info

CYRIX battery separators are an excellent replacement for diode isolators. The main feature is that there is virtually no voltage loss so that the output voltage of alternators or battery chargers does not need to be increased.

Cyrix-Li-load

The Cyrix-Li-load will disengage when its control input becomes free floating. If the battery voltage recovers after disconnecting (which will happen when no other loads are connected to the battery), the output of the BMS will become high and the Cyrix will reengage after 30 seconds. After 3 attempts to reengage, the Cyrix will remain disengaged until battery voltage has increased to more than 13V (resp. 26V or 52V) during at least 30 seconds (which is a sign that the battery is being recharged).

Cyrix-Li-Charge

The Cyrix-Li-Charge will connect a battery charger with 3 seconds delay:
- if the Charge Disconnect output of the VE.Bus BMS is high, and
- if it senses 13,7V (resp. 27,4V or 54,8V) or more on its battery charger connection terminal, and
- if it senses 2V or more on its battery terminal (the Cyrix will remain open, if not connect to the battery).
The Cyrix-Li-Charge will disengage immediately whenever its control output becomes free floating, signalling cell over voltage or cell over temperature. In general a cell over voltage alarm will reset shortly after charging has been stopped. The Cyrix will then reconnect the charger. After 2 attempts to reengage with 3 seconds delay, the delay increases to 10 minutes. Whenever battery voltage is less than 13,5V (resp. 27V or 54V), the Cyrix will disengage with a delay of 1 hour.
Note 1: In case of zero discharge current, or a small discharge current, the Cyrix will not disengage shortly after the charger has been switched off and/or disconnected, because battery voltage will remain higher than 13,5V.
Note 2: If, after the Cyrix has disengaged, the output of the battery charger immediately increases to 13,7V or more, the Cyrix will reengage, with 3 seconds delay.

Cyrix-Li-ct

The functionality of the Cyrix-Li-ct is analogous to the Cyrix-ct.
The Cyrix-Li-ct will parallel connect a lead acid starter battery and a LiFePO4 battery:
- if the Charge Disconnect output of the VE.Bus BMS is high, and
- if it senses 13,4V (resp. 26,8V) or more on one of its power terminals.
The Cyrix will disengage immediately:
- when its control output becomes free floating, signalling cell over voltage or cell over temperature,
and/or
- when battery voltage drops below 13,2V.
Start assist function: a short positive pulse will close the relay during 30 seconds (see figure on page 2).
A built-in transient voltage suppressor will limit the voltage spike that may occur when the Cyrix suddenly disengages due to cell overvoltage or over temperature.
