Converter/Battery Charger

Posted on May 14, 2012

Progressive Dynamics, Marshall, Mich., has developed a 24 V power converter/battery charger in 25 amp and 40 amp configurations for specialty vehicles and stationary applications including battery charging for buses, shuttle buses, local refrigeration delivery trucks, display vans, emergency vehicles, communication trucks and over-the-road trucks with sleeper cabs.

Built-in features such as electronic current limiting, reverse battery protection, high voltage protection, low voltage operation, and overtemperature shutdown ensure long term reliability, the company said. The new units also include the company’s built-in Charge Wizard, a patented four-stage charging system designed to constantly monitor the battery and automatically adjust the converter output voltage based on the charge status.

The 24 V power converter/battery charger is made in the U.S. and offers reverse battery protection, electronic current limiting and a two-year limited warranty.
