The Centaur range of battery chargers features auto-ranging input covering 90-265VAC 50/60Hz input meaning they can be used anywhere in the world.
Crucially, and unlike many other products that state universal input, the Centaur range will maintain full output power within the entire specified range. Other features include a fully automatic three-stage charge characteristic that ensures batteries are fully charged every time and three isolated charge outputs for multi-battery configurations to suit the majority of typical installations.
Quality without compromise
Aluminum epoxy powder coated cases with drip shield and stainless steel fixings withstand the rigors of an
adverse environment: heat, humidity, and salt air.
Circuit boards are protected with an acrylic coating for maximum corrosion resistance.
Temperature sensors ensure that power components will always operate within specified limits if needed by
automatic reduction of output current under extreme environmental conditions.
Universal 90-265V AC input voltage range and also suitable for DC supply (AC-DC and DC-DC operation)
All models will operate without any adjustment needed over a 90 to 265 Volt input voltage range, whether
50 Hz or 60 Hz.
The chargers also accept a 90-400 V DC supply.
Three outputs that each can supply the full output current
Three isolated outputs to simultaneously charge 3 battery banks.
The rated current can charge just a single battery or be split into 2 or even 3 batteries.
With up to 94% efficiency, these chargers generate up to four times less heat when compared to the industry standard. And once the battery is fully charged, power consumption reduces to 0,5 Watt, some five to ten times better than the industry standard.
Three-stage charging, with temperature compensation
The Centaur charges at a bulk rate until the output has reduced to 70% of the rated Amps, at which a 4-hour timer begins. After the timed period the charger switches to float rate. An internal temperature sensor is used to compensate the charge voltage with – 2 mV/ºC (– 1 mV/ºF) per cell. A DIP switch is available to select the optimum charge/float voltages for Flooded Lead-acid, Gel, or AGM battery profile Which can charge lithium batteries (lifepo₄).
