Ametek Prestolite Power, a provider of industrial battery charging and fleet management solutions, has added the Prestolite Advanced Charger (PAC) Eclipse Series to its PAC 800 and Equinox lines of high-frequency battery chargers.
The compact PAC Eclipse Series uses advanced MOSFET high-frequency power conversion circuitry that provides efficient, dependable battery charging. The Eclipse Series is designed to recharge any completely discharged lead-acid battery, flooded or sealed, as well as NiCad batteries. The standard model is rated to recharge a 100-percent discharged battery within 8 hours, with 80-percent?rated models also available.
The Eclipse Series easily adapts to a wide variety of charging requirements, including opportunity charging and multiple battery types with three different equalize options, delayed start, and time of day block-out periods. Its high-frequency design is extremely efficient in converting AC power to usable DC power with minimum impact on the utility grid. It also offers low installation and operating costs.
With its advanced microprocessor control, the Eclipse Series allows the battery to determine its own charge cycle rate based on its state of discharge. The Eclipse Series continually monitors the battery's condition to provide optimum charge with minimal temperature rise and completes the charge at the proper current regardless of battery age, battery type, or electrolyte temperature.
