converter charger

This converter charger converts AC shore power into DC power and charges your battery bank. If your RV already has a stock converter charger, it will need to be removed to ensure this unit operates properly.


Charging Operation

During the charging process, the charger senses your battery bank's voltage and decreases the current as it reaches full charge. This decrease helps prevent overcharging, which can damage the battery. It is compatible with flooded lead acid, AGM, and gel batteries.


charge wizard

The available Charge Wizard (sold separately) upgrades the converter charger to automatically switch voltages while the battery bank charges. This accelerates the charge, but also helps extend battery life by adjusting the voltage during the different modes. The Charge Wizard simply connects to the TCMS port on the back of the converter charger.


Safety Features

cooling fan

The system includes a number of safety features. It has a reverse polarity protection that will protect the converter if the battery is hooked up incorrectly. Additionally, the unit includes protection for overvoltage, undervoltage, and overcurrent, which can damage your equipment, as well as the converter. It also has GFCI protection that shuts off power when there is a current imbalance. The built-in cooling fan also removes excess heat from the unit. The fan speed is proportional to the internal temperature on the converter, so when the power demand is low, the fan will operate quietly.


How It Installs

The converter mounts horizontally inside your RV in a dry location with ventilation. However, as long as the unit has sufficient ventilation, it can also be mounted vertically. The mounting hardware is not included.


terminals

The DC output terminals wire to the battery bank. The AC in cord plugs into a 120V 3-wire grounded outlet.

Video Transcript for Progressive Dynamics RV Converters PD9180A Review

Today we're gonna take a look at the Progressive Dynamics PD9100 Series 12 volt 80 amp Inteli-power converter. Now this power converter will deliver DC power to your recreational vehicle's 12 volt lighting and appliance circuits. This unit does offer built in features to ensure long term reliability, offers electronic current limiting, reverse battery protection, high voltage and low voltage protection to prevent damage from AC input voltage fluctuations. Also, has automatic thermal protection to protect from damage due to excessive heat and on the side here you can see it has a variable speed, intelligent cooling fan which will only operate under high heat conditions. Right down here, there's an actual built in TCMS connector. The TCMS stands for Total Charge Management System.

This will allow easy addition of a Charge Wizard. Now the Charge Wizard, we do sell separately on our website. It's part number PD9105. I happened to pull that part just to show you what that looks like, and you can see here's the plug-in that will plug into that connector.Now this Charge Wizard will turn this 9100 Series converter into an automatic 12 volt charge system. It's a micro processor controller that'll constantly monitor the RV battery voltage to determine if the battery requires a quick recharge, is fully charged and being used or is fully charged and in storage.

The Charge Wizard itself selects one of the three charging voltages and one of the full operating modes to properly recharge or maintain the battery. And again, this Charge Wizard we do see separately on our website and it is listed on this product page as a related product. Now this converter is UL listed, it is assembled in the USA. Input voltage on this is 105-130 volts AC, wattage is 1,300 watts, output voltage is 13.6 volts DC, power draws 80 amps.A few dimensions on this, the overall length, we're gonna measure from this end all the way other to this end. So you're gonna see right at nine and one eighths inches long.

Overall width on this unit is gonna be right at seven and three eighths inches wide. Total height on the unit is right at three and five eighths inches tall. The power cord it comes with is 30 inches long, and the overall weight on this is about six pounds. But that should do it for the review on the Progressive Dynamics PD 9100 Series 12 volt 80 amp Inteli-power converter.
