The Manager30

The REDARC Manager30 is a 30A state-of-the-art battery management system designed to charge and maintain auxiliary batteries by incorporating AC, DC and solar inputs, ideal for recreational vehicles, caravans, and camper trailers with multiple battery banks.
SKU: BMS1230S2
$2,128.46 (AUD)
Product Files

The Manager30 is a complete battery management system for charging auxiliary batteries used in recreational automotive and marine applications. The dual battery system incorporates AC, DC and solar inputs to achieve the best charge for an auxiliary battery.

Developed with ease of installation in mind, The Manager30 is compatible with all vehicles and alternator systems including variable voltage alternators.

Whether you’re charging Lead Acid, Gel, Calcium, AGM or Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries, The Manager30 represents a complete DC to DC charging and maintenance solution. If you’re charging one auxiliary battery or more, The Manager30 will ensure they’re always fully charged, providing peace of mind when battery charge provides the power source for the comforts of home whilst travelling around Australia.

The Manager30 operates like 6 separate products, it charges an auxiliary battery from the vehicle while on the move, it’s a 240 volt charger, a solar regulator, a battery isolator, a load disconnect controller, all with a remote battery monitor, making it market leading.

Charging lithium batteries

Lithium batteries have improved storage capacity relative to size and weight. They do however require specific charging conditions in order to operate correctly and the battery itself must have an in-built cell management system. REDARC have designed a charging profile within The Manager30 to complement these in-built systems.

Green power priority

The Manager30 is designed to charge an auxiliary battery from multiple sources simultaneously. If 12 volt solar power is available, solar power will be used before topping up the output charging current from another source mains (if available) or DC vehicle power when on the move.

MPPT solar regulator

The built-in Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) solar regulator allows The Manager30 to deliver the maximum amount of power from portable solar panels, even during low light conditions.

Remote monitor

Designed to show you auxiliary battery information and charge status. You can customise how your battery is charged and monitor where the charge is coming from. A user-friendly, graphical display monitor lets you know what’s going on, keeping you in control at all times.

Features

  • Multi Stage AC-DC Battery Charger
  • Multi Stage DC to DC Charger
  • Maximum Power Point Tracking Solar Regulator
  • Battery Monitor
  • Dual Battery Isolator
  • Load Disconnect Controller
  • Super quiet operation
  • Charges AGM, Gel, Calcium content, VRLA, Standard Lead Acid and LiFePO4 batteries

The Power to travel.
For years we have been running the Redarc BMS 1215 Battery Management System without a problem. Now I have updated to the Manager30 and I have to say, the best just got better.
I have it coupled with a 300amp hour lithium battery and a Redarc  Pure Sine Wave Inverter and a couple of roof mounted Solar panels plus a couple of portable solar panels (so I can park in the shade).  I never run out of power, and I even run the air conditioner off the battery!!
The 30 amp Redarc BMS unit keeps the battery fully charged from whatever power source is available - 240 volt mains, 240 volt generator, 12 volt from the vehicle and solar (usually just the last two).
The cost is only a fraction of what it would cost to get a comparable system which involves several separate components from different manufacturers - a DC to DC charger, AC to DC charger, Solar Regulator,  Battery Isolator and battery monitor. On component that does the work of several and with backup support and service unmatched.
It was not a hard choice.  Obviously I like them. Happy to talk to anyone that wants more info, but the team at Redarc are the best to talk to.

BMS 1230
I recently purchased a BMS 1230 unit, at the insistance of a friend who installs them for his customers.
Using his scrap paper, basic diagram & the Redarc instruction manual, I was able to install the unit myself.
This unit has to be the best Australian creation ever !  I hooked it up to 200W solar panels & was stunned with its performance.
Previous Setec ( standard Jayco fitting ) took forever to charge my 100AH Gel battery.
Not only did the REDARC BMS 1230 keep me informed of battery condition, it charged the battery from 50% to full, most mornings, within 4 hrs. The most amazing feature was that it even pumped a charge into the battery on a rainy day.
I have made many changes to my Heritage - none more important than the REDARC.
My advice - Do not go free parking without one of these REDARC Manager systems. I now no  longer stress after a night of TV & showers, that  the battery is getting closer to flat or dead - Battery power is now a forgotten source of stress
Thanks REDARC for a truly excellent product, which sincerely changed our free parking lives.

THIS IS NEITHER A PAID NOR SOLICITED COMMENT - Just happy to let all fellow Caravanners know of a truly valuable, worth the cost, product - AND -  made in Australia.
Am more than happy to talk anybody into one of these units. Feel free to contact me  Peter Soane 0401199739

My Life Depends on the Reliability of My Vehicle
I'm a photographer.  I work to the ethos that the best place to be somewhere is when the conditions are at their worst.  So I live in Western Australia and that usually means the height of summer when conditions are at their most brutal.

Up until last October I'd battled away for years.  First without any battery management system at all.  And then next I played with different isolators and dual battery systems without ever really solving the problems I was having.

Working in the Pilbara and Kimberley in the height of summer places enormous demands on electrical equipment.  Fridges are running all the time give or take  a few minutes here and there.  Solar panel efficiency drops through the floor because of ambient temperatures generally over 40 degrees and sometimes nearly 50.

For many years I'd been chewing through batteries and no-one in the north seemed to truly understand auto-electrical systems of the nature that I needed.

In October last year I travelled to Adelaide to get the problem sorted once and for all.  I installed a BMS1230.  Two 120 Watt Redarc solar panels to go with another 160 watt panel I had already.  Three AGM batteries and a new cranking battery.  A Redarc solonoid SBI212.  And, a 350 watt Redarc sine wave inverter to go with another 800 watt inverter that I installed.

The system has been brilliant.  I can leave the vehicle for a long period of time (which happens with me because I travel frequently for long periods overseas) and then return and the vehicle will start straight away.  Previously, no matter what I did, the battery would always be flat.

And I previously kept running into problems because I would find myself parked up out in the bush for three to five days at a time.  Then I'd head into town to reprovision and come back to the same spot for another three to five days.  This might go on for months at a time.  And the car alternator didn't have long enough for me on the road to keep the batteries topped up.  It was a nightmare.

Since the electrical fitout the system has been magic.  
I'm now running my laptop and charging my camera batteries and running my 60 litre Engel and even my 88 key electronic piano which I play for three or four hours per day when I'm out bush.  Batteries remain topped up and I can easily check the state of charge simply by looking at the display panel on the BMS1230.

I went with Redarc's products after considerable research because I need reliability and Redarc's reputation is unsurpassed here in Australia.  I work in the toughest conditions that this country has to offer and anything that has the ability to bring my vehicle to a standstill in extremely remote areas has the potential to be fatal.

In a class of its own!
We have killed our fair share of batteries for a number reasons over the years, and with the pending purchase of a new camper, we wanted to get it right. The manufacturer already uses the Redarc BMS, but we were excited when we heard there was a new BMS out which was compatible with Lithium. Twelve months on and a big trip under our belt, we are really pleased with how it works. You’ve got SOC information at your fingertips, and we find the recharge capabilities from solar or alternator while out on the road are first class - we were receiving some amazing results off the grid.
