Sterling Split Charge Diode - 70A 1 in 3 out D70A3

Prosplit D Split Charge Diodes

Gold plated terminals

Product information
Sterling Marine has developed a range of low cost split charge diodes. These diodes have enhanced performance over conventional diodes and at a lower cost. The difference is in the devices. All other split charge diode manufacturers use conventional alternator diodes, which at low current flow have about a 0.93 voltage drop. When the full rated current of these diodes is approached, the voltage drop increases to about 0.95 volts. This results in excessive heat and power loss across the diode. For example: A conventional one alternator in and two battery bank out, tested against a Sterling unit had the following results:
