PowerStar Charger

The PowerStar industrial forklift battery charger sets the industry standard for accuracy, efficiency, flexibility and reliability. Designed to recharge any 100% discharged lead-acid battery in its ampere-hour rating within 8 hours, the PowerStar is engineered to provide the maximum in charging performance. The PowerStar is also available in 60% and 80% rated models. The charger uses SCR power conversion circuitry, which is virtually maintenance-free, to provide years of dependable service.

With the PowerStar, the industrial battery determines its own charge cycle rate with its state of discharge. The PowerStar provides a constant current-constant voltage-constant current (I-E-I) charge curve to eliminate the possibility of overcharge, even with line voltage variations, and it completes the charge at the proper current regardless of battery age or specific gravity.

    Data Device and Software Compatibility

    The PowerStar Charger utilizes the WID to communicate with DataLink, our desktop software program for data management and monitoring. It can also utilize the WBIDBID and CID data devices. All our Silicon Controlled Rectifier (SCR) forklift chargers have the option to utilize the Universal Download Kit, which allows them to make data downloads without a CID.
