Once the engine is switched off the Orion-Tr Smart DC-DC Charger Non-Isolated disconnects the starter battery from the service battery.Extensive electronic protectionOver-temperature protection and power derating when temperature is high.
- Connector over-temperature protection.
- Overload protected.
- Short circuit protected.
Adaptive three step charging
The Orion-Tr Smart DC-DC Charger Non-Isolated is configured for a three-step charging process:
Bulk – Absorption – Float.
Rapid recharge delivering as much current as possible.
Once absorption voltage is reached, the controller switches to constant voltage mode. For flooded lead acid batteries, it is important that during shallow discharges the absorption time is kept short in order to prevent overcharging of the battery. After a deep discharge the absorption time is automatically increased to make sure that the battery is completely recharged. For lithium batteries absorption time is fixed, default 2 hours. The fixed or adaptive mode can be chosen on the battery settings.
Float or maintenance mode is the last stage of the cycle where the battery is kept at a fully charged state. Once the battery is back in use and the voltage drops for over a minute a new charge cycle starts.
Flexible charge algorithm
The Victron connect app is pre-set with a number of charge profiles to suit different battery types or you can create your own profile.
Adaptive absorption time
Absorption time is automatically calculated. But is also configurable with the VictronConnect app.
Configuring and monitoring
All configurations can be easily adjusted via the Victron Connect app

Input voltage lock-out
Protection for your vehicle battery and alternator. If the input voltage drops below the lock-out value the device will sleep until input voltage increases above the restart value. Configurable with VictronConnect.
The remote on – off can be configured in different ways.
- As a manual override switch.
- Wired to ignition as an engine run signal.
- Wired to a BMS to activate/deactivate charging.
