I'd like to use the Orion-Tr Smart 12/12-30 (isolated) to charge a LiFePO4 battery in my SUV. I'd like to test that the setup is working before I wire everything up in the car. Can I just hook up a 12V, 500W power supply to simulate the alternator?
One concern is the engine detection algorithm. I think I would either need to use a power supply with an output voltage above 13.3V, or change Shutdown/Restart Levels on the Orion-Tr to values lower than what the power supply outputs.
Are there other concerns I am missing?
