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. 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.
Unaffected by AC Power failures
Efficient, low-cost operation
Back-up timer protection
On-Board utility application

The Ultra Maxx fills a recharge performance gap between traditional charging and fast charging. Many people are attracted to the benefits associated with fast charging but can't justify the expense to install and purchase such equipment. The Ultra Maxx, with its minimum charger size, moderate input service rating and inexpensive remote installation cost offers an economical solution for eliminating the burdens and cost associated with battery rooms, fast charge charging stations and truck/driver down time.
Charges batteries to 80% in 3 hours or less
Uses BID module to monitor battery temperature during charge cycle to maximize battery life
Up to 25A/100 start rate and a 4.5A/100 finish rate I-E-I charge profile for accurate and efficient charging
Compensates for battery operating temperature automatically Data Mate and CDAC compatible
