Powertop Installation Wiring Diagram On Smart Alternator

How do I connect my CTEKD250SA/Dual to the PowerTop?
The electronics in the blue socket are different and the CTEK 250SA needs to connect straight across the internal battery which is
accessed through the Grey socket.

If you have an external DC-DC charger they must meet the following requirements:

• 20A maximum charge current

• Bulk 14.2V

• Float 13.7V

If the DC-DC charger meets these requirements connect the device to the Grey Anderson connector labelled 50A Battery Output.

Standard Alternator Baintech PowerTop

If you want to charge the PowerTop from the vehicle alternator, connect a cable to the starter battery, connect the other end of the cable to the Blue Anderson Plug on the PowerTop labelled Vehicle charge input. Fuse the cable at the start battery end of the cable. The vehicle voltage must be above 13.2V to charge the PowerTop battery. Recommended fuse size is 35 AMPS max.

Tricolour Anderson Plugs

PT3 side diagram

The Baintech Anderson plug is designed to lock securely together and provide a solid connection between two cables. Rated for 50A. The Baintech PowerTop has three colour coded Anderson plugs on the side of the unit. These plugs can be used to connect to external charging inputs or loads. Each colour is keyed differently to ensure correct connection of loads and charging inputs.

RED ANDERSON: Solar/External
Accepts charging from UNREGULATED solar

BLUE ANDERSON: Vehicle charging input connection

GREY ANDERSON: Load connection to and from battery - Accepts charging
from a REGULATED solar power source only
• Accepts regulated solar only
• Protected by a 50A thermal self-resettable breaker
• Can be used for 12volt input and output power source in applications e.g: Inverter, DC-DC charger (from smart alternator),
high current AC-DC charger, or a regulated solar power source to charge the PowerTop

NEW 140A Charging System

The only 12V dual-battery energy management system you'll ever need

CTEK’s 140A OFF ROAD CHARGING SYSTEM combines the D250SA 20A charger with the SMARTPASS 120 power management unit for the ultimate off road charging system. It makes sure your vehicle and your onboard equipment have full power, right when they need it, so you can stay off road for even longer. For complete peace of mind, you can see at a glance how much charge you’ve got left and the length of time till your batteries are discharged.

The D250SA charger can get its energy from alternators, solar panels and wind power. It separates starter and service battery and maximizes the use of the both without risking that the starter battery is unable to start the engine. SMARTPASS 120 The SMARTPASS 120 charges and maintains your service battery using 120A from the alternator. It will automatically prioritise critical equipment so radios, emergency lights and navigation systems always have the power they need. The CTEK MONITOR constantly monitors the voltage and current (charge and discharge) to show you exactly how much charge you have and how many hours you’ve got left before your battery bank is empty.

 Installing these products into your 4WD, camper trailer or caravan will give your batteries the ultimate performance, power and lifespan. CTEK enables you to extend your enjoyment of the outdoors!
