Customisable battery charges

Wednesday, 21 February, 2007 | Supplied by: Helios Power Solutions

Amtex Electronics has developed a customisable battery charger that maintains voltage levels in emergency service and rapid response vehicles to ensure there is no failure in starting a vehicle or powering its communications equipment. The technology is suitable for any type of vehicle, including ambulances, mine and refinery emergency vehicles, SES trucks, SWAT team vans, metropolitan fire tankers, workplace emergency units, country fire and rescue vehicles, rural emergency services and federal security vehicles.

The Amtex battery charger can be customised: for example, in New South Wales Rural Fire service tankers, the company customised a 240 VAC input automatic charger with two separate charting outputs to allow for simultaneous charging of the 12 and 24 V batteries on a vehicle.

Besides starting engines, these batteries are also needed to power the communications equipment and many other electronic systems on a modern fire tanker, including its pumps.

The charger is normally mounted in a suitable location on a wall or column at the fire station with an extension lead to allow the vehicle to drive in, park and connect to the battery charger.
