I see the NLG513 has an optimal DC output of 200-520VDC. Can it go below that voltage range if I'm having it be controlled over CAN Bus from a BMS?
Say around the 100v?


Logic would say no, but the Brusa sell sheet says otherwise, Look on page four: http://media3.ev-tv.me/BrusaManual2012.pdf

or the screenshot here:


So, it will work below 200V, just not at full current?

It will work at under ~200v at full current (down to about 12v i think) but will not work at full power. You are always limited to 12.5amps or 3680w - whichever you hit first.

Thats perfect. I'm investigating what charger I should use and it seems like the Brusa is the most robust out of everything i've seen.

The only other option I've come across is the Eltek 67.111.0, but that is still only 10 amps and misses out on alot of the features the Brusa has, like 12 aux power. That way it can power the BMS when I have the 'ignition' off.

Another question to clarify:
If I'm using a 115v outlet, is the 12.5Amps what the charger will draw from the socket, or the max current it will do on DC? My pack is going to be running at 103.6v
