CTEK chargers are waterproof and ideal for applications where the craft is used infrequently. The CTEK range comprises five battery chargers, four of which operate on 12v: CTEK Multi XS 3600, CTEK XS 7000, CTEK XS 800, and CTEK XS 25000. The company also produce the CTEK Multi XT14000 24v charger for larger craft. Marins Scene, Porthcawl are suppliers of CTEK battery chargers.
CTEK D250S Dual Alternator Charge Booster. Ref: MZ-37168
The D250S charge booster, a new onboard booster that is powered from the alternator and, f attached, from solar/wind power it will not only charge leisure batteries but also condition and extend their life.
- Boosts alternator voltage whilst monitoring battery
- Solar/wind power regulator and voltage manager
- Up to 20A charging capacity
- Easy to install
What the D250S Dual Does
Traditional alternators cut back on the charge voltage as soon as the battery voltage begins to rise. This means that the battery takes longer than necessary to charge and is unlikely to come up to more than 80% of capacity. The D250S Dual produces the optimal 14.4V charging voltage even if the alternator only produces 14V and, unlike an alternator, monitors the voltage/current/temperature to ensure the battery is charging safely and optimally.
Ctek M100 Battery Charger. Ref: MZ-37107
8 stage, rather than 4 stage, charging enables the M100 to analyse whether the battery can be charged at all, it removes harmful lead sulphate crystals whilst the Recond mode rebalances the acid concentration in deep descharged batteries. 8 stage charging also includes the Float stage when battery charge is maximised for 10 days in readiness for use before switching to pulse charging on voltage decline.
Ctek MXS 5.0 Battery Charger. Ref: MZ-37138
The smallest unit with full 8 Stage charging; MXS 5.0 can solve a broad range of battery-related problems and is the perfect charger for those with high demands
CTEK MXS3600 Battery Charger.
CTEK's Automotive chargers come with 6.3mm eyelet leads rather than the 8.4mm leads supplied with their marine counterparts. All automotive chargers are weather proofed to either UIP65 or IP44.
CTEK Smartpass. Ref: MZ-37170
Smartpass is an energy management unit and is used together with a D250S to provide optimal charging whilst managing energy consumption
- Manages power consumption between battery and alternator
- Prevents total discharge
- Up to 80A charging capacity
If the battery is fully charged when additional load comes on (rather than allowing the battery to supply it and then later to recharge the battery) smartpass goes direct to the alternator to respond providing the extra power.
