promariner.com APPENDIX 46 Choosing a ProNauticP Charger ProNauticP Series chargers are designed for cuddies, cruisers, sailboats, yachts and commercial larger fishing boats. %oats in this class typically have a common ground and are set up for shore power AC and sometimes include the use of a generator and or an inverter on-board. A 12V DC common ground system is typical for most boats, however larger boats and commercial boats may be utilizing a 24V, 32V or 36V common ground DC system. Method 1 (preferred): When choosing a dry mount charger, the following information will aid in the proper selection: 1. +ow many low voltage lights are on board and total estimated amperage reTuired when they are all on? (Good rule of thumb is 1A per bulb) 2. +ow is the boat used" If there is a lot of use while at the dock, what is the total estimated DC amp draw if at the dock with all lights and DC appliances on? 3. What is the DC voltage system onboard" (12V DC or 24V DC or 32V DC or 36V DC) 4. Is there an inverter being used" If yes what is the wattage rating and DC input amps required" 5. What is the number of batteries and group size of each battery" For example: After answering the above you find you have 12V DC system with 18 DC lights on-board and a VHF radio you like to leave on with a satellite 7V for entertaining, you would find your DC amp load would be approximately 20A . Add an additional 10A for charging capacity and select a 30 amp charger. 7his would be a Pronautic1230P as shown in the chart below. Method 2: If you are not able to answer all the questions listed in method 1, you may make a selection by simply understanding the number and sizes of each battery on-board and compare it to the battery group size list on the right. Select a recovery time that is suitable for your needs. Batteries are categorized into "Group" size designations and each group size has an average number of amp hours (AH) available in each battery classification. 7he combined total of all batteries to be charged provides your total amp hours. Example: 7wo group 27 batteries (100 AH each) and One group 8D (225 AH) totals 3 batteries with a combined total of 425 AH (100 100 225 425).
