Re: Aerogen 6

I’ve been given this contact twice. I’ve not needed it but it’s the best shot.

Z.A. Dew Boutries
32 Rue Des Cayennes
Conflans Sainte Honorine
78700
France

Tel 13 97 23 96 9
ATMB Marine.com

Secondly, I was considering replacing my Aerogen 6 with a D400. I spoke to a marine distributor I found online and he said a D400 will work with an Aerogen. I would presume the opposite would also be true.

Re: Aerogen 6

Aerogen 6 and D400 (can) use the same regulator. I can supply model number when I get back to my boat later this week.

Re: Aerogen 6

Or make your own reg. Not hard. Plenty of home brews online.

Iíve got the older Aerogen reg WITHOUT adjustable voltage. A bit of a pain. Once the battery bank gets over 13.6 volts the reg starts dumping power into the resistors. I got around it by making my own reg using a picaxe chip.

Re: Aerogen 6

I’m starting to think D400 and Aerogen6 are very, very similar. Both sold by the same distributor.

Somewhere someone said the D400 was not easily serviceable. My Aerogen 6 seems to be very servicable.

Re: Aerogen 6

D400 is supplied with an LVM regulator, in my case model 6TB (for charging 2 battery banks). See picture.
I got also a Aerogen 4 model that came with an LVM regulator model 4TB.
Maybe "TB" stands for twin batteries?
