The La Marche model A70MD material handling battery charger product line utilizes microprocessor controlled SCR charging technology. The A70MD comes with a Vacuum Fluorescent Display (VFD) which is bright with clear contrast making them ideal for difficult lighting conditions. This charger features automatic AC line voltage compensation, current limiting and controlled I-E-I charging cycle. The I-E-I charge cycle provides constant current start charge rate followed by constant voltage and completing with constant current finish rate. The constant current finish rate can be terminated either by DV/DT, voltage limit or time to assure full and proper charge.
