Converters and Power Supplies for the Communications, Automotive & Marine Industries



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.


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 stage 2 of the process. When the current is below 10% of 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.


There are four products 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.

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.
