Victron Energy Skylla-IP65 24/35(3) 120-240V – SKY024035100
The Skylla-IP65 24/35 is a powerful, waterproof and intelligent battery charger with a 7-stage adaptive charge algorithm, suitable for a wide range of battery types and chemistries featuring a dedicated Lithium-ion charge algorithm.
The wide range universal input voltage adds flexibility to the installation, the charger will maintain its full output power no matter where it is located in the world.
The IP65 rating makes this charger especially suitable for marine, mobile, and industrial applications and it can withstand the rigors of an adverse environment: heat, humidity and salt air.
Features of the Skylla-IP65 24/35
Steel epoxy powder coated case. Withstands the rigors of an adverse environment: heat, humidity and salt air. Circuit boards are protected with an acrylic coating for maximum corrosion resistance. Temperature sensors ensure that power components will always operate within specified limits, if needed by automatic reduction of output current under extreme environmental conditions.
For status monitoring and to easily adapt the charge algorithm to a particular battery and its conditions of use.
CAN-bus interface (NMEA2000)
To connect to a CAN-bus network, to a Skylla-i Control panel or to the Color Control digital display.
Synchronised parallel operation
Several chargers can be connected in parallel and synchronised with help of the CAN-bus interface. This is achieved by simply interconnecting the chargers with RJ45 UTP-cables.
The right amount of charge for a lead-acid battery: variable absorption time
When only shallow discharges occur the absorption time is kept short in order 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.
To increase battery life: temperature compensation
Every Skylla-IP65 24/35 comes with a battery temperature sensor. When connected, charge voltage will automatically decrease with increasing battery temperature. This feature is especially recommended for sealed lead-acid batteries and/or when important fluctuations of battery temperature are expected.
Battery voltage sense
In order to compensate for voltage loss due to cable resistance, the Skylla-IP65 24/35 is provided with a voltage sense facility so that the battery always receives the correct charge voltage.
Use as a power supply
As a result of the excellent control circuit, the Skylla-IP65 24/35 can be used as a power supply with perfectly stabilized output voltage if batteries or large buffer capacitors are not available.
Li-Ion (LiFePO4) ready
Simple charger on-off control can be implemented by connecting a relay or open collector opto coupler output from a Li-Ion BMS to the remote control port of the charger. Alternatively complete control of voltage and current can be achieved by connecting to the CAN-bus port.

The Skylla-i Control panel provides remote control and monitoring of the charge process with LED status indication. In addition, the remote panel also offers input current adjustment that can be used to limit the input current and thus the power drawn from the AC supply. This is particularly useful when operating the charger from limited shore power or small gensets. The panel can also be used to change several battery charging parameters. Several control panels can be connected to one charger or to a set of synchronised and parallel connected chargers.
Want to improve battery charging? Why not take a look at the Victron Energy Battery Sense which measures voltage at the battery bank terminals, errors arising from voltage-loss due to cable resistance are avoided – guaranteeing the correct charge-voltage.
