12 Volt Battery Chargers


12/24 volt 5 amp Enclosed Intelligent Battery Charger

The DSE9460 is an intelligent enclosed battery charger that has been developed to offer the highest levels of safety, usability and battery life and performance. The charger can be used straight out of the box or connected to a PC via a USB cable to modify the pre-set charging curves. The charging curve can be selected from the PC software or user created for advanced battery applications.

The charger can be used as a power supply and includes a high number of input/output protections as standard.  The charger also has the ability to connect to an external system via MODBUS RTU, using RS485.
