Orion XS 12-50 amp / 700 watt | Victron Energy ORI121217040

Original price was: $445.00.Current price is: $328.10.


Engineered from the ground up, the Orion XS redefines adaptive DC-DC battery charging. For use in dual battery systems charged with an (intelligent) alternator. This device not only ensures top-tier performance but also guarantees the safety of your system.

The Orion XS serves as a DC-DC battery charger or as a power supply, offering a wide input and output voltage range. This is especially significant in the case of vehicles with a Euro 5 or Euro 6 smart alternator, which often supplies too low charging voltage even when the engine is running or when extended cable lengths, as is often the case in boats and RVs, lead to voltage drops. In such scenarios, precise and controlled charging is imperative to fully charge the service battery while protecting the starter/input battery from discharge.

  •   Adjustable charging current
  •  The charge current is adjustable with a minimum step size of 0.1 amp via VictronConnect
  •  Smart alternator compatibility
  •  An integrated mechanism detects whether the engine is running (engine shutdown detection), which only activates the charger when the alternator supplies power
  •  This ensures that the charger only draws power when the alternator is supplying power, i.e. when the engine is running
  •  Adaptive 4-stage charge algorithm
  •  For lead acid batteries, it is important that during shallow discharges, the absorption time is kept short to prevent overcharging of the battery
  •  After a deep discharge, the absorption time is automatically increased to make sure that the battery is completely recharged
  •  The Smart BuckBoost includes fully programmable charging algorithms and eight preprogrammed battery settings
  •  Low-temperature shutdown and input under voltage protection
  •  To prevent damage to lithium batteries, the charger will turn off automatically at low temperatures
  •   It will also shut down when the input voltage drops below a configurable lockout value and restart when the input voltage rises above the restart value, this is to protect the input source – ie. the starter battery, from deep discharge
  •  Remote on/off
  •  The Smart BuckBoost can be switched on and off remotely via the remote on/off connector or the VictronConnect App
  •  Typical applications include wiring a switch or Battery Management System (BMS)
  •  Comprehensive electronic protection
  •  The protections include overload, short circuits, and excessive temperatures.
  •  The charger is protected against over-temperature by reducing the output power when the maximum product temperature is reached
  •  This can be paralleled to increase the output current
  •  An unlimited number of units can be connected in parallel
  •  Bluetooth Smart enabled
  •  The wireless solution to change settings, monitor activities, and update the Smart BuckBoost software using Apple and Android smartphones, tablets or other devices
  •  Various parameters can be adjusted with the VictronConnect App
  •  The VictronConnect App can display key data, including warnings and alarms, on the Device list page without the need to connect to the product
  •  VE.Direct port
  •  For a wired connection to a GX device such as the Cerbo GX or Ekrano GX, PC, or other devices
  •  Enables advanced monitoring, control, and diagnostics from anywhere (requires a GX device connected to the internet and VRM Portal) or locally via the Remote Console
  •  IP65 protection
  •  The Smart BuckBoost complies with an ingress protection rating IP65. This means the product is dust-tight and protected against heavy rain.
  •  Input voltage range 9-17 volts
  •  Output voltage adjust range 10-17 volts
  •  Output voltage tolerance +/- 0.25% (max)
  •  Output voltage noise 10 mV rms
  •  Input and output current setting range 1 – 50 amp
  •  Maximum constant short-circuit current 50 amp
  •  Continuous output power up to 40°C 1) 700 watts
  •  Maximum efficiency 98.5 %
  •  No-load current consumption < 100 mA
  •  Standby current consumption < 1.5 mA
  •  Operating temperature range -20 to +60 °C (derating 1.5 % per °C above 40 °C)
  •  Humidity Max. 95 % non-condensing
  •  DC connection Screw terminals
