Ametek Prestolite Power SCR Industrial Battery Chargers

Ametek Prestolite Power Mate

Power Mate

The PowerMate is a fully automatic SCR Battery Charger with three different user selectable battery types. The Power Mate’s energy efficient SCR design converts the AC input power to usable DC output power at a low cost. The Power Mate is equipped with two back-up timers for additional battery protection. The Power Mate is unaffected by AC power failure. The Power Mate with no additional modifications, 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.

Ametek Prestolite Power Power-Star

PowerStar

The PowerStar sets the industry standard for accuracy, efficiency, flexibility and reliability. Designed to recharge any 100% discharged lead-acid battery in its smpere-hour rating within 8 hours, the PowerStar is engineered to provide the maximum in charging performance. Also available in 60% & 80% rated models. The charger uses SCR power conversion circuitry, which is virtually maintenance-free, to provide years of dependable service. With the PowerStar, the battery determines its own charge cycle rate with it’s state of discharge. The PowerStar provides a constant current-constant voltage-constant current (I-E-I) charge curve to eliminate the possibility of overcharge, even with line voltage variations, and it completes the charge at the proper current regardless of battery age or specific gravity.

Ametek Prestolite Power Ultra Charge

Ultra Charge

The Ultra Charge can charge flooded cell and sealed cell lead acid batteries of nearly any voltage, or ampere-hour size. Rated to recharged a 100% discharged battery in its ampere-hour rating in 8 hours or less. The Ultra Charge is ideal for a wide variety of operating environments and applications. It’s rugged designand flexibility make it suitable for nearly any manufacturing or warehouse operation, particularly those with multiple shifts or harsh environments such as cold storage, foundries, mills, and other similar applications.

Ametek Prestolite Power Power-Star

PowerStar Plus (Opportunity Charger)

The PowerStar Plus meets the highest standards for accuracy, efficiency, flexibility and reliability.  Designed to recharge batteries from 20% state of charge to 80% state of charger in 3 hours or less.  The charger uses SCR power conversion circuitry, which is virtually maintenance free, providing years of dependable service.  With the PowerStar Plus, the battery determines its own charge rate based on its state of discharge, electrolyte temperature, and battery age.  The charger provides a constant current-constant voltage-constant current (I-E-I) charge curve to eliminate the possibility of overcharge, even with the line voltage variations, and it completes the charge at the proper current regardless of battery age or specific gravity.

Ametek Prestolite Power Ultra Maxx

Ultra Maxx Opportunity Charger

You might wonder why you can’t just opportunity charge with a conventional charger. For years, battery and charger manufacturers have discouraged opportunity charging and that was because the charger controls weren’t in place to monitor and control the charge cycle. Now with more intelligent chargers, it is possible to opportunity charge with minimal effect on battery life.

Prestolite Power’s Ultra Maxx charges batteries right in the truck – during breaks and shift changes. The result? Your truck batteries can achieve a consistent state of charge without those unproductive trips to the battery room… and without battery changing.

That’s because the Ultra Maxx opportunity charger senses battery voltage and temperature from the BID module to optimize charge parameters. The Ultra Maxx can also charge batteries at conventional and valve regulated rates, maximizing your current battery and charger investment.
