New charging options from Mastervolt AS
Mastervolt, part of Advanced Systems Group (ASG) by Brunswick, has announced the arrival of four new ChargeMaster Plus models – the 12/35-3, 12/50-3, 24/20-3 and the 24/30-3.
The models have three outputs capable of delivering the maximum current for fast charging, and the pre-float available on all outputs eliminates the risk of overcharging (each output can individually go into pre-float, which means voltage is no longer applied when not needed), keeping full charge current available for the other outputs.
Said to be quieter, smaller and lighter in weight than previous designs, the latest additions to the ChargeMaster Plus family are easy to install in places where space is limited, and are usable as a plug-and-play standalone battery charger or as part of a larger system.
The new ChargeMaster Plus models join a range of Mastervolt chargers that integrate multiple functions into one single device. Mastervolt says its chargers reduce the complexity and cost of multiple battery installations by incorporating additional components, including auxiliary chargers, battery isolators and VSR (voltage sensing relay) into one strongly built cabinet. The chargers also have built-in priority charge, which redirects available power to the battery with the least charge, for faster charging, and a revival mode to automatically revive batteries should they ever become fully depleted.
The ChargeMaster Plus range uses the Mastervolt automatic 3-Step+ charge algorithm and comes with predefined charge profiles for commonly used battery types, including lithium-ion, as well as flexibility for custom user-defined profiles.
All ChargeMaster Plus models have the addition of a system protocol that enables the charger to communicate with displays, shunts and power systems including communication standards like CZone® and NMEA 2000, without the need for additional interfaces. The company says this wide ranging communication functionality makes every ChargeMaster Plus model ideally suited for wider system integration.
The new four models can be used with all types of batteries (lithium ion, gels and AGMs). The ChargeMaster Plus range is suited for drop-in replacement of a previous generation ChargeMaster. Mounting positions can be re-used, and no drill is required when switching the mounting bracket.
