Sterling 60a battery to battery charger settings for Victron Lithium Smart.

I have 3x 200ah lithium smart batteries in parallel and plan to charge with the BB1260

I think it should be setup on "Custom mode"

I need to know:

Boost / bulk / absorption (V)

conditioning (V)

Float (V)

Absorption time factor (0-18)

Absorption minimum (0-960 minutes)

Absorption maximum (0-960 minutes)


I assume:

boost / bulk would be 14.4

absorption / conditioning 4.2

Float 13.5

Absorption time factor 1 (just a guess because this will be overwritten by the min / max)

Absorption time 2hr / 2hr for both


I would like some feedback ! thanks

Sorry, we missed the part where you said Smart batteries.
You are correct, the default settings would be:

14.2V Absorb. Absorb time fixed for 2 hours. Maximum recommended is 14.4V.
13.5V Float

Sorry, but this is a Victron site. You should be asking this on a Sterling site.

sterling manual defines how to set all the perimeters for the charge profile.

I would need to know the values that my Victron batteries would prefer / require.


some of them you can get from the manual.. just wanted a second opinion.


cheers







Sorry, wasn't clear these were Victron. Now I see it in the title. My bad.
