ProMariner ProSport Gen 3 Battery Chargers
ProMariner has announced the third generation of ProSport onboard marine battery chargers. ProSport Generation 3 is the only charger available that includes proper installation feedback with its “System Check OK” indicator confirming it is wired correctly and batteries are ready to accept a charge. The new charger incorporates all-digital microprocessor control and deploys the latest in digital pulse charging technology to extend battery life. It is designed to significantly reduce AC power consumption with the most advanced energy saving mode. ProSport Generation 3’s unrivalled performance and system status gives boaters the assurance and peace-of-mind that comes with the knowledge that their charger and batteries are operating at peak performance.
The latest edition of the industry-leading ProSport assortment includes individual battery bank fault indicators. In the event of a wiring problem such as reverse polarity, spreading a battery cable over 24 or 36 volts instead of 12, or a battery short, the indicator directs an individual to the exact battery and cable that is an issue, saving time, money and eliminating the guess work when troubleshooting faults. ProSport Generation 3’s Energy Saver Mode will monitor batteries and auto maintain them only when needed to ensure a full state of charge, resulting in lower operating cost and maximum reserve power performance.
ProSport Generation 3’s Distributed-On-Demand Charging technology takes 100-percent of the available charging amps and distributes them to any one battery or combination of all batteries, as needed, for more efficient charging. ProSport provides at-a-glance status of AC power, charging, conditioning, auto maintain and reconditioning modes in addition to battery type selected – Flooded / AGM or GEL standard on all models or High Performance AGM batteries specifically on the 20 Amp Dual model. Its high performance charging algorithms can be selected and changed with a new selection even when batteries are replaced. Pre-wired for easy installation, the heavy-duty recreational-grade battery chargers have a fast charge time ranging from 8 to 10 hours (50% state of discharge) and are designed for 12, 24 and 36 volt systems. The chargers are 100% waterproof meeting the IP67 standard. Their non-potted design is 40% lighter than older technology, epoxy-filled competitive chargers and boasts much cooler operating temperatures for safer and ultra-reliable operation. ProSport Generation 3 is CEC California Energy Commission listed for its advanced “auto maintain” Energy Saving mode, and is designed and constructed to the UL 1236 SB, CSA C22.2 No. 107.2, FCC Class A and ABYC A-31 specifications. ProSport Generation 3 chargers are available in single, dual and triple bank models, and include a 2-year limited warranty.
