CTEK Launches New Smart Battery Charger and SmartPass Power Management System
London, UK (News4us.com) December 12, 2010
Being lost at sea without power is a sailor’s worst nightmare, a nightmare that can now be made obsolete with CTEK’s D250S Dual Smart Battery Charger and SmartPass power management system.
The D250S Dual is a new onboard 12V Battery Charger that is powered from the alternator and, will not only charge leisure batteries whilst on the engine is switched on or on the move, but also provide comprehensive Battery Protection and extend their life, saving the consumer valuable time and money.
The CTEK SmartPass allows energy produced from solar, wind, AC chargers and alternators to be synchronised to maximise output and minimise charge time. The energy is then able to be distributed to different battery banks andor equipment such as lights and navigational systems that need additional energy, while ensuring the battery remains fully charged.
When used in tandem the result is a ‘total’ energy regulator for energy production, usage and storage in any 12V DC system, meaning that the chance of experiencing complete power failure whilst at sea is no more.
Peter White, Sales and Marketing Manager CTEK UK and Ireland, commented: “Complete power failure whilst at sea can obviously present many dangers to those on board. Many believe that the alternator will keep the battery charged whilst the engine is switched on but that’s simply not the case, rather it tops it up to the point just below where it started. As the battery is relied up on and used more and more, the levels slowly dwindle and can therefore lead to failure.
“With CTEK D250S Dual and SmartPass, batteries are fully charged and maintained at all times whilst on the move and, even in the event of failure, the SmartPass ensures that enough power is held in reserve to power the bare essentials, such as the GPS and radio’s for example, so that the journey to shore can be made safely.”
