Blue Smart Charger IP65 12/15 Fault when use as power supply

Blue Smart Charger IP65 12/15, Firmware v3.25

Output current set to 15A

Output Voltage set to 12.8V

When use as a power supply for a 12V 50W light, the voltage drop to 0 and I got a fault with message: #27 Short-circuit, sometime the light turn on after a brief dim.

I'm pretty sure it's a software problem (load detecting?), the charger mode seems working fine

Please Victron have a look at this, I bought this to use as a power supply and it's useless

Very easy to test it, just plug an 12V Halogen lamp on it.


Thank you for your help

If the device works as a charger, your connected light will be defective or unsuitable (transformer, capacitors) ...
