Centaur Charger 12/80 (3)

Centaur Charger

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, unlike many other products that state universal input, the Centaur range will maintain full output power within the 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.

The range spans 12V and 24V models from 16A through to 100A.

Models: 12 / 24 Volt

Quality without compromise

Aluminium epoxy powder-coated cases with drip shields 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 continuously 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. Each output is capable to supply the full rated current.

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 for 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 batteries.
