ARCO Zeus - High Energy Bluetooth Alternator Regulator

  • SKU: 021-101-001

The unique external high energy alternator regulator Zeus from ARCO optimizes battery charges for 12 volt to 48 volt systems from Lithium batteries (LiFePo4) to lead-acid batteries. The charge controller, which can be controlled via Bluetooth, not only takes into account the output of the alternator, but also the output of the motor driving the alternator. In addition, Zeus is the only Bluetooth charge controller that can read two shunts at a time in order to react to the information from the battery and the alternator accordingly and ensure optimum charge control.

Description

The unique external high-performance alternator regulator Zeus from ARCO optimizes battery charges for 12 volt to 48 volt systems, regardless of whether Lithium batteries (LiFePo4) or lead-acid batteries are installed on board. For this optimization of the individual charging profile (depending on the battery type), customers can access a large number of standard battery configurations and make their own configurations.

The ARCO charge controller not only takes into account the output of the alternator, but also the output of the engine that drives the alternator (configurable). In addition, the output of the alternator can be increased with a press of the button, converting the engine into a generator and charging the battery bank directly and as efficiently as possible.

Zeus is the only Bluetooth alternator regulator that can read two shunts at a time - the battery shunt and the alternator shunt. This feature enables the charge controller to react to inputs from the battery current & temperature and the alternator current & temperature accordingly and to ensure optimum charge control.

As the first regulator on the market with built in State of Charge, an additional state of charge monitor is no longer necessary. The device can be configured and controlled via Bluetooth and without additional equipment, using ARCO’s own app (for Android and IOS). The intuitive user interface, which is unique on the market, allows access to all relevant information and enables system regulation and optimization of the battery charge and alternator output. The advantage of this is safe and efficient battery charging processes that are adapted to the system and protect the on-board electronics.

Automatic data logging makes it possible to share all information with ARCO's technical support if required, so that they can remotely implement any troubleshooting or import new configurations directly.

The user-friendly Bluetooth high energy charge controler for alternators by ARCO is supplied including the alternator and battery harnesses and two thermistors harnesses (2x temperature sensors for alternator and battery).

Secure Bluetooth connection for easy installation, configuration, and updates.

Harnesses, Thermistors and NMEA 2000 kit included: Zeus comes with both a battery wiring harness and alternator wiring harness as well as 2 thermistors and the NMEA 2000 kit.

Native ARCO Zeus application on mobile/tablet for easy to use and intuitive dashboard, system information, and a myriad of pre-set and customizable regulator settings (compatible with iOS and Android).

State of Charge: Zeus is the first to the market regulator with built in State of Charge which eliminates the need for an additional state of charge monitor.

Generator Mode: A first to market advanced feature of Zeus is that it can turn the engine into a dedicated generator with a press of the button, whereby it focuses the alternator’s performance to the creation of energy in replenishing the battery bank quickly. This sustainability feature makes it possible to use less fuel to drive energy to the alternator.

Pre-set battery libraries: Whether it is Lithium (LiFePo4) batteries or lead-acid Deep Cycle batteries, ARCO constantly extends its pre-set battery libraries for the Zeus device.

Data logging and sharing: The alternator’s performance and settings are automatically logged wirelessly. Setting files and performance logs can be communicated to technical support with a push of a button, and support can import and automatically configure a technician's recommendations remotely.

CAN bus and NMEA 2000-integrated networks make it possible to transmit relevant data to RV navigation systems, multifunction displays (MFDs), or marine chart Plotters.

Compatible with all voltage systems: 12 to 48 volt compatible.

Connections   
Bluetooth: Yes (password protected)
2 feature-in ports: To physically control user selectable options.
1 feature-out ports: For lamp or control relay for multiple user options.
RJ45: Yes

System information  
Management: Native application built and managed by ARCO allows users to wirelessly install, monitor, system diagnose, and adjust settings.
System Voltage: 12V, 24V, 36V, 48V
State of Charge: Yes (SOC)
CE mark: Yes
Generator Mode™: While in neutral and using less fuel, the alternator will maximize the engine’s power and put 100% of the field into charging batteries.
P-Type (B-Circuit) and
N-Type (A-Circuit) compatible:
Yes, with wiring harness included.
Regulator optimization: Only alternator regulator that measures and reacts to inputs from the battery current and temperature and the alternator current and temperature.
Consistent performance: Operates at maximum performance within safety limits set by the user. Once the battery bank is full, it will continue to maintain and supply house loads while maintaining the full capacity of the battery bank.
Water protection rating: IP 66/67
