Simply Unbeatable | More Power in Less Space

Need to charge two battery banks?  The Victron Cyrix-ct is an Intelligent Battery Combiner that has microprocessor controlled heavy duty relays that automatically connect batteries in parallel when one battery has reached a preset voltage (indicating that the battery is being charged), and disconnects when the voltage decreases below float level (indicating that one or both batteries are being discharged).

 

Note: This is not for Li-ion batteries

    No voltage loss
    Cyrix battery combiners are excellent replacements for diode isolators, the main advantage being that there is virtually no voltage loss.

    Prioritising the starter battery
    In a typical setup the alternator is directly connected to the starter battery. The accessory battery, and possibly also a bow thruster and other batteries are each connected to the starter battery by the Cyrix battery combiner. When the combiner senses that the starter battery has reached its connect voltage it will engage, to allow for parallel charging of the other batteries.

    Bidirectional voltage sensing
    The Cyrix-Ct battery combiner senses the voltage of both connected batteries. It will therefore also engage if for example the accessory battery is being charged by a battery charger.

    Intelligent battery monitoring to prevent repeated switching
    The software of the Cyrix battery combiner does more than simply connect and disconnect based on battery voltage and with a fixed time delay. The Cyrix battery combiner looks at the general trend (voltage increasing or decreasing) and reverses a previous action only if the trend has reversed during a certain period of time. The time delay depends on the voltage deviation from the trend.

    12/24V auto ranging
    The Cyrix battery combiners automatically detects system voltage and adjust to 12V or 24V.

SunPower 170W E-flex solar panels

So now I generally

don't bother hooking

up to shore power!

Thanks for all the help in planning my solar project for my boat. The two 170W flexible panels fit well on my Bimini and now I generally don't bother hooking up to shore power.  Although I haven’t had any long trips since my installation I have done a few day trips. And even with fridge, radio, plotters, autopilot and occasional radar it seems that these panels are keeping up with my usage. I did add some stiffener material to the back of the panels and attached the panels with zippers and they have survived a few 30 knot days and one night with winds gusting well over 55 knots. No damage at all and no signs of flexing problems. 

The advice and service has been great.  Thanks again.

high efficiency flexible solar panels

It made my project

work, thank you

Lyall and Katie are so knowledgeable.  I tried this project with a lesser quality panel and the project failed because it wasn't efficient enough. The SunPower® Maxeon Gen III cells are compact and simply kick out more Volts/Current than all the others on the market today.   And by using the SunPower® panel, everything was smooth and efficient.  I love my new 170W 29V 5.83A panel!!  It made my project work.   Thanks Lyall for all your knowledge in making this work.

Terrific customer service, patient, always responsive

The process of researching a solar solution for my Beneteau 41 was simplified & clearly understood once I discovered Sun Powered Yachts.  Terrific customer service, patient, always responsive with guidance and products that just work. Being a novice at setting up a solar system, I had many questions along the way, and the team at Sun Powered Yachts were always there to answers my questions and provide support.
