The La Marche Ultra Series Charger is a High Frequency Switch Mode charger specifically developed for Batteries and Ultra Capacitors used in starting applications. This programmable charger with filtered output is designed to charge various types of chemistries, such as Lead Acid, Nickel Cadmium and Ultra Capacitors.
The USC series incorporates Power Factor Correction (PFC) Circuitry with a wide input voltage range. The user friendly interface allows the user to navigate easily through the configuration menu. The two line LCD displays Output DC Voltage & Current and Alarm Status. The front of the unit provides four status LED indicators for the overall status of the system.
The case is specifically designed with 16 Ga anodized aluminum for maximum strength against corrosion, while its weight gives the ability to the user for easy handling and installation, without the necessity of a second person. Case is equipped with knockouts, for optional cable entry, either from the sides or the bottom. Removable cover, located on the front, gives access to the customer connections, temperature probe, as well as, the alarm terminals.
Ultracapacitors are energy storage devices that provide burst power for applications requiring high power functions. Unlike batteries, which store energy via chemical reaction, ultracapacitors store energy by electrostatically (physically) separating positive and negative charges. The ultracapacitor’s electrostatic energy storage permits the device to be rapidly charged and fully discharged for hundreds of thousands of cycles, as compared to batteries, which typically perform only hundreds or thousands of charge/discharge cycles. Ultracapacitors are a reliable, energy-efficient and cost-effective solution for storing energy.
