Amperor Power Integrator

The Amperor power integrator is:

A solar/wind MPPT controller
A Battery to Battery charger (replacing a split charge system)
A Vehicle battery top up charger (does the same job as as battery master)

In their words "The Power Integrator takes inputs from the vehicle alternator, solar panel and wind generator then provides the optimum charge for the leisure battery. The unit can boost the input from the alternator, turning it into a multi-stage charging output more suitable for a leisure battery. When used in solar/wind mode, the system acts as a regulator which can also trickle charge the starter battery and help combat drain during winter storage."




This device has been mentioned before by a trade member in the solar sub forum but as it does a lot more than solar I thought I would bring it up here.

I haven't got one yet but I'm actively looking how I could fit it as an after market addition to my Chausson. It won't be straightforward. As there are already two relays a distribution system and a control panel integrated together.

Amperor were really quick in sending me an email with 6 pdf's attached to describe the product, accessories, and installation information.

its probably good if you're starting from scratch but if you've already got solar panels with a regulator and everything is working OK, why change it, and there are cheaper solutions for battery to battery charging.

Oh I agree but if adding a solar panel and an MPPT controller is often done after market so the opportunity to upgrade everything at once is appealing (you still need your hook up charger).

But first I have to figure out what the French wiring diagram of my Chausson really means. The D+ from the alternator (or HP?) Ford wirig connection into the distribution panel. I expect it is used to operate the split charge relay box and also to trigger the alternator charging indicator on the control panel but if I do away with the split charging relay box hmmmmm

As well as control inputs to my two relay boxes there are power outputs and 'signalling outputs all of which go to the distribution system and and etc

Yes, agree when you're fitting other stuff. If you've already got a solar panel, as we have, it wouldn't be worth fitting.

Thanks for the information on the Chausson - but you lost me after the D+

Thanks for that Frank. Shame I didn't see it earlier as I have just bid on a 50amp B2B charger. If I lose the auction I will go for one of these

yup, all mine. Not sure whether to laugh or cry
Got it at a good price and it is 50Amps. on the downside an integrated box would have been easier but it's only 25Amps.
