Description

Projecta Charge N Maintain Chargers are smart Chargers. This technology offers switchable charging stages that ensure an accurate and efficient charge for your battery. This allows longer life and better performance for your battery over extended periods of time.

Projecta Charge N Maintain Smart Chargers communicate with the battery and ascertain its level of charge. This allows the charger to balance its load and optimise its charging methods to ensure charging is stopped when the battery reaches capacity.

8-STAGE AUTOMATIC CHARGING
The AC040 is a fully automatic battery charger with 8 charge stages.

Automatic charging protects your battery from being overcharged so you can leave the charger connected to the battery indefinitely.

8-stage charging is a sophisticated charging technique that gives your battery longer life and better performance compared to using traditional chargers.

Projecta’s CHARGE N’ MAINTAIN chargers are suitable for most 12V automotive, marine and deep cycle batteries. (AC040 also suits 6V batteries).

The 8 charge stages are:
Battery Rescue, Soft Pulse, Pulse Charge, Soft Start, Bulk, Absorption, Battery Test and Float.

BATTERY RESCUE
Applies a high voltage to break down the Lead Sulfate build up in heavily sulfated batteries.
SOFT PULSE
Pulses a small current as the battery is starting to take charge.
PULSE CHARGE
Increases the pulse current as the battery is starting to take charge.
SOFT START
This is a preliminary charge process that gently introduces power to the battery, protecting the battery and increasing battery life.
BULK (CONSTANT CURRENT)
The Bulk stage reduces charging time by charging the battery at the maximum rate (constant current) to a set voltage, at which point the battery is approximately 80% charged.
ABSORPTION (CONSTANT VOLTAGE)
The absorption stage charges the battery to 100% by adjusting the charge rate allowing the battery to absorb more power.
BATTERY TEST
The analysis mode tests the battery to ensure that it has taken the charge; if the battery passes the test the charger will proceed to the float stage.
FLOAT
The Float stage maintains the battery at 100% charge without overcharging or damaging the battery. This means the charger can be left connected to the battery indefinitely
