Our boat has 2 80amp alternators into 2 sterling digital regulators. I think they can be paralleled to the house bank. We did have an incident where both regulators went overvoltage and shutdown. Since they did it simultaneously I believe they are connected somehow.
Just check out Sterling powers website for their products, Sterling Power USA - Marine Battery Chargers, Marine Battery Isolators, DC to DC Waterproof Battery Charger, Advanced Alternator Regulators, IP68 Chargers, ProConnect Battery Relays, DC Powered Battery Chargers & Alternator Powered Battery Chargers
Call them and let them know what you have and I am sure they can advise on how to improve your charging
. I was just looking into that but decided to just replace the bad regulator
I have and continue operations as they have been as we are planning to sell the boat in the (hopefully near)future. I only just found out/ figured out that with both engines running only one is charging
the batteries at a time because the second operating alternator
will see the batteries as full due to the high voltage being put in by the first operating alternator
and not charge at a high rate. That is solved
by having another special box to run both alternator's charging thru to combine.
