Engineered from the ground up, the Orion XS redefines adaptive DC-DC charging. For use in dual battery systems charged with an (intelligent) alternator. This device not only ensures top-tier performance but also guarantees the safety of your system.

Stay in charge with configurable input and output currents, and rest assured that your Orion XS will run at full capacity up to 40°C. The innovative aluminium circuit board cooling technology delivers an astonishing 98% efficiency without the need for fans.

As an integral part of your Victron system, the Orion XS offers full (remote) monitoring and control capabilities, giving you complete command of your device and system.

  • Fully configurable
  • Engine shutdown detection
  • Intelligent charge algorithms
  • Efficient cooling
  • Works with VictronConnect
  • Remote monitoring optional

Adjustable charging current

The charge current is adjustable with a minimum stepsize of 0.1A. via VictronConnect.

Smart alternator compatibility

An integrated mechanism detects whether the engine is running (engine shutdown
detection), which only activates the charger when the alternator supplies power. This
ensures that the charger only draws power when the alternator is supplying power, i.e.
when the engine is running.

Adaptive 4-stage charge algorithm

For lead acid batteries it is important that during shallow discharges 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
The Orion XS includes fully programmable charging algorithms and eight preprogrammed battery settings.

Low temperature shutdown and input under voltage protection

To prevent damage of lithium batteries the charger will turn off automatically at low
temperatures. It will also shut down when the input voltage drops below a configurable
lockout value and restart when the input voltage rises above the restart value, this to
protect the input source ie. starter battery from deep discharge.

Remote on/off

The Orion XS can be switched on and off remotely via the remote on/off connector or the
VictronConnect App. Typical applications include wiring a switch or Battery Management
System (BMS).

Comprehensive electronic protection

The protections includes overload, short circuit and excessive temperatures. The charger is
protected against over-temperature by reducing the output power when the maximum
product temperature is reached.


Can be paralleled to increase output current

And unlimited number of units can be connected in parallel.


Bluetooth Smart enabled

Built-in Bluetooth Smart: The wireless solution to change settings, monitor activities and
update the Orion XS software using Apple and Android smartphones, tablets or other
devices. Various parameters can be adjusted with the VictronConnect App.
Instant Readout: The VictronConnect App can display key data, including warnings and
alarms, on the Device list page without the need to connect to the product.


VE.Direct port

For a wired connection to a GX device such as the Cerbo GX or Ekrano GX, PC or other
devices. Enables advanced monitoring, control and diagnostics from anywhere (requires a
GX device connected to the internet and VRM Portal) or locally via the Remote Console.


IP65 protection

The Orion XS complies with ingress protection rating IP65. This means the product is dusttight and protected against heavy rain.
