Factory Cristec charger model for L450

Can anyone share and confirm what is the model version of the Cristec battery charger installed by Lagoon (for 450 or similar) ?

On some pictures or manual i've seen, they look like CPS 3 box, but the CPS3 are higher end and only 80 and 100A, so based on what is mentioned on the option list for 60A and 40A, the factory model is more likely the YPower.

Thanks in advance

Thank you very much!

So are you still using them?
Either in addition to the Quattro or an alternative to the Quattro, considering that in some marina, the current limit (16a, 240v) maybe almost what you need to get the charger of the Quattro running.
Or am I missing something?

Not sure what you mean by the quattro getting started at 16A but regardless if you have a Multi Control and shore power connected to AC2 you can set the upper limit of the input current. From memory its 0 to about 200amps. The quattro will draw a lot as a charger but this way you can limit it. On a 16A shore connection any onboard demand greater than 16A will be aided by the power assist function. Set the upperlimit to 16A in this case to not trip the shore pwr CB. As for the now spare Cristecs. I have connected them to a 110V shore power inlet with the intention to plug into 110V marina, recharge batteries and power onboard AC demands via the quattro only.

thanks a lot Pascals.
I was concern that basically using a 220/16a and connect it to the victory Quattro which charger consume all of it, the system become useless.
So was thinking about using the cristecs exactly as you did (but in case of 220v shore power, as boat is 110v).

I originally like the idea of getting an isolation transformer to both take care of the galvanic isolation and get the voltage down and connect to ac2 input of victron, but that won’t do much of use to charge batteries or enable any equipment as European marina power is limited to 16A and that would cut the wattage available to the inverter in half.

Hopefully the 2 cristec are good enough to charge the battery and maintain them afloat when boat is hibernating...
