High Expectations from Low Voltage

The move towards electric drives and more marine systems now operating at 48VDC has led to the UK's largest Victron distributor, Energy Solutions, seeing an increased requirement for power electronics.

Energy Solutions offers an unparalleled range of extra-low voltage products operating at 48 VDC, from inverter chargers, solar charge controllers and DC-DC converters; all of which are key components in these systems. Associated control systems and 48 VDC lithium battery banks are also available.

Rather than stretch 12V systems beyond practical application, the benefits of a 48V system include much more efficient components such as chargers, the ability to install larger capacity inverters, manageable cable sizes, and of course higher output alternators in reasonable package sizes.

A good example is the new Molabo electric drive, one of Energy Solutions systems incorporating Victron 48V components.  This system provides an excellent alternative to a conventional drive system, utilising the range from Victron and MG Energy to fulfil all the onboard power needs.

The battery bank provides power to the electric drive which in turn powers the vessel, the battery bank is recharged when underway by the efficient onboard generator or, when in port, by shore power.

The new 96-Series alternators from Balmar, also available from Energy Solutions,  deliver a new standard for emerging 48V battery banks and inverter systems. Offered in two power packages of 60A and 100A, these high power alternators provide 2.9kW and 4.8kW of charging power respectively.
