Ametek SCR Industrial Battery Chargers

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.

SCR Chargers

  • Ametek Prestolite PowerMate battery charger SCR

    The Power Mate's energy-efficient SCR design converts the AC input power to usable DC output power at a low cost. It is equipped with two back-up timers for additional battery protection. The Power Mate is unaffected by AC power failure. With no additional modifications, it 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.
