The charger is rated for 120-volt AC input and 12-volt DC output, with output amps selectable between 5 and 40. It’s equipped with an easy-to-read LED screen to guide configuration and provide battery-charging status. Built-in NMEA 2000 connectivity lets you network the charger with an MFD for configuration and monitoring. You also can use the Xantrex mobile app with the Xantrex BLE module to configure and monitor the charger.
