Charges Four Times Faster
September 6, 2018
This converter worked well on first installation. I replaced an IOTA 55 converter with the PD9260CV. It took a little bit of thinking and a couple of extra lengths of 6 gauge wire but it now works well. The IOTA 55 required 10 hours to charge my two 6 volt Trojan T105 batteries to 90% and this took less than 2. A full charge is not over 13v instead of the old 12.65v from the IOTA.
The Power Dynamics converter has a burst mode where it delivers over 14 volts until the batteries are at 90%, and then it drops to 13.6 until they reach 100%. The wizard lets you know whether it is burst mode or standard charging or desulfation. It comes with two positive and two negative connections. I will use the second to charge the spare AGM battery independently.
Replacing the IOTA 55 required removing 8-10 screws to separate the old converter, disconnecting 4 wires and removing the unit. I screwed he PDI converter to the floor and ran two longer 6 gauge stranded wires up to replace the old 12 volt power cables. I then cut the wall connector from the power cord of the PDI and wired it into the 110V AC power connectors inside the power panel. I did this while at camp during some down time. Then started the generator and the 14v+ charge started immediately. Works great.
