Ametek Prestolite Power Battery Chargers

Prestolite Power (formerly Hobart Brothers Battery Charger Division) has set the industry standard worldwide for superior battery charging solutions.  It has manufactured industrial battery chargers for the material handling industry since 1917.  Located in Troy, OH, USA, Prestolite Power continues to build upon the rich tradition of innovation, integrity, and excellence, and are pleased to provide a broad range of industrial battery chargers from single shift chargers to high frequency IGBT opportunity charging systems. Like the new energy saving Eclipse II charger family.

The Accu Charger and Battery Mate product lines offer the rugged dependability of ferroresonant technology. The Ultra family of chargers, including the Ultra Charge, and the popular Ultra Maxx, offer the flexibility of an SCR charger for opportunity charging or charging hot or cold batteries. Our newest product offering, the Eclipse II family is a high frequency IGBT charger offering the ultimate in energy management and efficiency and can charge both flooded and valve regulated lead acid batteries.

The quality designed and manufactured ferroresonant transformer is the heart of the efficient charger. The power conversion circuitry is designed to maximize battery life with its constantly tapering charge, automatically regulated by the “on charge” battery voltage. The output current of the charger is determined by the state of discharge of the battery. The battery is precisely charged, based on its depth of discharge.

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.

High frequency industrial battery chargers utilizing IGBT technology offer high efficiency, precisely controlled charge curves, light weight and small size. High frequency chargers provide a constant current-constant voltage-constant current (IEI) charge curve and because of their extreme flexibility, they are adaptable to all types of batteries and applications.
