Using the latest technology, Switchmode chargers convert 240 volt AC power to 12 volt DC power using electronic components, unlike traditional battery chargers which rely on large heavy transformers.This electronic system produces a faster, more powerful charge via a three stage charging cycle and there is a significant reduction in the weight of each charger. The first stage produces bulk constant current for a fast charge whilst the second stage takes on a sophisticated absorption cycle of constant voltage, ensuring the battery is fully charged.The final stage referred to as the float stage, maintains the battery at a safe voltage ready for immediate use.
Projecta three stage automatic chargers are available in 4,000, 7,000, 10,000 and 15,000 mA ratings, each is polarity protected to prevent output leads sparking due to accidental reverse connection or short circuit and all carry the Electrical Safety EMC approval.Light in weight and fitted with strong end plates with mounting holes, each charger is ideally suited for permanent mounting installations.
Deep cycle batteries used regularly will typically last longer when charged using a three stage charger, ultimately saving money on replacing expensive deep cycle batteries. The 3 Stage Automatic Projecta 10,000mA charger is recommended for charging deep cycle batteries used in caravan and camping applications where fast, powerful charging is required. For those heading off the beaten track requiring maximum charging output the 15,000mA charger provides the ultimate performance and is ideal for use with portable generator sets.
The Projecta Switchmode Chargers are available from leading automotive, 4WD and camping outlets.
