Clore Automotive’s Solar brand has added a battery/charger maintainer designed for the different batteries found in almost any car, truck, SUV, ATV, motorcycle, boat or personal watercraft application.
The Pro-Logix PL2140 4-Amp, 6/12 Volt battery charger/maintainer uses advanced microprocessor-controlled logic to deliver a fully automatic, precisely controlled charging routine to optimally charge and maintain each battery serviced.
The company says the product also has the ability to properly charge virtually any lead acid battery type, including Conventional, AGM, Gel Cell, Spiral Wound, Deep Cycle and Marine batteries.
The Pro-Logix PL2140 adapts its approach based on the needs of each battery it services, according to Clore. Such adaptations can include activating a soft start mode on deeply discharged batteries, a battery repair mode on older/distressed batteries and temperature compensation to properly manage charging in extreme temperatures.
In addition to providing advanced battery charging, it also offers an advanced battery maintenance routine once the battery has reached full charge. This is ideal for extended storage applications, such as those found in collision repair, as well as the storage of seasonal use vehicles.
The PL2140 features a special operator-activated recovery mode, enabling the unit to automatically recover from power outages. This is extremely helpful if the charger is being used to maintain the battery on a vehicle where regular oversight or intervention is not possible.
It also incorporates numerous features to make charging safer for the operator and the vehicle/battery being charged, including over-voltage protection, reverse polarity protection and battery fault detection.
Clore Automotive designs, develops and manufactures automotive service equipment for professionals and consumers, including jump starters, battery chargers, battery testers and power inverters. For more information, visit, www.cloreautomotive.com.
