Radian on a boat?

Postby Yamez4u on Mon Jul 09, 2012 12:17 am

I am thinking of using a Radian inverter on my 41 foot Chris Craft commander. The inverter would be mounted in the Engine room and would use and charge a 48v 1000ah Winston LiFePo4 battery. Would there be any issues with the boats floating ground? Is there a charge profile for lithium chemistry batteries? I will be mounting 3100w to 3600w Grape 100w panels. I have not decided on the positive or negative grounded panels, if the positive grounded are even possible on a boat? I know a lot of differnt questions, feel free to answer just the ones you can. Thanks

My RE system: Planning on a Radian inverter with a 48v 1000ah Wiston Lifepo pack. 3100w to 3600w Grape Solar array made up of 100w panels, on my 41 foot Chris Craft commander boat.

The Radian is not designed or been tested for mobile applications so I do not recommend using it for this application. As for lithium batteries, the charging Algorithm was designed for lead acid technology. If you would like to use lithium technology I would contact the battery manufacture.

Have a good one.
