IC Series AC to DC Intelligent Battery Chargers

The IC Series Intelligent Battery Chargers offer an ideal way of charging any type of lead acid battery safely and reliably. The rugged, fully protected unit (IP65) can be used in a variety of applications including on trucks, off road vehicles, boats, caravans and in depots and workshops.

Intelligent Charging System

The Alfatronix IC Series is suitable for all types of lead acid batteries. Charging is through a 3 stage system. The first stage is the bulk charging phase. This state is indicated when the yellow LED is illuminated and continues through to stage 2 of the process. When the current is below 10% of the maximum output, the charger automatically adjusts to reduce the output voltage to reliably top up the battery. At this stage the green LED is illuminated indicating that the battery is fully charged. Should the voltage level fall below the nominal values during the maintenance stage, the charger will go back to step one and repeat the process.

A Wide Product Range

There are 4 producst in the range, all accepting the standard European 230Vac inputs.

The products are available for charging either 12Vdc or 24Vdc systems. They use the latest manufacturing techniques and are cool running with high efficiency. Like the other products in our range, they use switchmode technology.

These 12V units are ideal for small vehicle applications such as cars, minibuses, small marine craft, caravans and motorhomes and a variety of industrial uses.

24V units are ideal for heavy vehicle applications such as HGVs, larger marine craft, off road and forestry vehicles and for use in depots and workshops

Rugged & Compact

The chargers are enclosed in a rugged, anodised aluminium extrusion protected from dust, damp and impact to IP65. The units can be installed practically anywhere, on boats or vehicles, on road and off, at depots and garages.
