The DTC battery charger is a new addition to the Cragg Railcharger® series. The DTC charger offers more updated features and settings to make the charger even more user-friendly and cost efficient.
It has an operating temperature range of -40º F to +158º F allowing it to work effectively in a wide temperature range. The unit has a temperature compensation feature allowing the charger to adjust DC output based on the temperature of the battery; extending the life of the battery and adhering to the manufacturer’s specifications. The remote voltage sense capability is used to compensate for the voltage drop across wires between the charger and the battery. A set of contacts with user defined settings are provided for monitoring the high and low battery voltage, as well as current and temperature alarms.
