Silicon Controlled Rectifier(SCR) type battery chargers regulate charging current by allowing the battery to determine its own charge cycle rate in accordance with its state of discharge. SCR chargers provide a constant current-constant voltage-constant current (I-E-I) charge that eliminates the possibility of overcharging, even with line voltage variations of +/- 10%, and allows the battery to finish at the proper current regardless of its age or temperature.
The Power Mate's energy efficient SCR design converts the AC input power to usable DC output power at a low cost. The Power Mate is equipped with two back-up timers for additional battery protection. The Power Mate is unaffected by AC power failure. The Power Mate, with no additional modifications, can be used in on-board applications where the output of the charger is always electrically connected to the battery on board the utility equipment.
The Power Mate is a fully automatic SCR Battery Charger with three different user-selectable battery types.
Simply connect the battery to the charger, after a preprogrammed five-second delay the charge cycle starts.
The PowerStar sets the industry standard for accuracy, efficiency, flexibility and reliability. Designed to recharge any 100% discharged lead-acid battery in its ampere-hour rating within 8 hours, the PowerStar is engineered to provide the maximum charging performance. Also available in 60% and 80% rated models.
The charger uses SCR power conversion circuitry, which is virtually maintenance-free, to provide years of dependable service. With the PowerStar, the battery determines its own charge cycle rate with its state of discharge. The PowerStar provides a constant current-constant voltage-constant current (I-E-I) charge curve to eliminate the possibility of overcharge, even with line voltage variations, and it completes the charge at the proper current regardless of battery age or specific gravity.
Often called the most flexible battery charger on the market, the Ultra Charge can charge flooded cell and sealed cell lead acid batteries of nearly any voltage, or ampere-hour size. Rated to recharged a 100% discharged battery in its ampere-hour rating in 8 hours or less.
Ideal for a wide variety of operating environments and applications, its rugged design and flexibility make it suitable for nearly any manufacturing or warehouse operation, particularly those with multiple shifts or harsh environments, such as cold storage, foundries, mills, and other applications.
The PowerStar Plus is designed to recharge batteries from 20% state of charge to 80% state of charge in 3 hours or less. The charger uses SCR power conversion circuitry, which is virtually maintenance free, providing years of dependable service. With the PowerStar Plus, the battery determines its own charge rate based on its state of discharge, electrolyte temperature, and battery age. The charger provides a constant current-constant voltage-constant current (I-E-I) charge curve to eliminate the possibility of overcharge, even with the line voltage variations, and it completes the charge at the proper current regardless of battery age or specific gravity.
The PowerStar Plus delivers dependable charging with easy operation and low energy costs. The PowerStar Plus has a built-in SCR2000 control.
Ametek's Ultra Maxx provides a constant current, constant voltage and constant current (I-E-I) charge curve that eliminates the risk of overcharging. In addition, charging can be completed at the correct current regardless of battery age and specific gravity. Ultra Maxx can charge a 100% discharged battery in 8 hours or less.
You can charge your batteries in the forklift, which eliminates the unproductive trip to the battery room. By charging your batteries during breaks and shift changes, your batteries can achieve a consistent state of charge.
Ultra Maxx is able to sense the battery's voltage and temperature from the BID module to optimize the charging parameters. The Ultra Maxx can also charge batteries at conventional and valve regulated rates, maximizing your battery and charger investment.
