Clore Automotive has introduced Model PL6800, a new 12-volt 100A flashing power supply and 100/40/10A battery charger, from Solar. The PL6800 is designed to provide stable power, on demand up to 100 amps, to a vehicle electrical system to support module reprogramming. It also provides full service battery charging capability from 10 to 100 amps.
In power supply mode, the Pro-Logix PL6800 provides power to maintain vehicle electrical system voltage at a preset level, increasing its output in response to system load increases to maintain a stable power environment for successfully reprogramming. It features a voltage output range of 13.1-14.9V, adjustable in 0.1V increments. It also delivers its power with minimal voltage ripple, the company says.
In charging mode, the PL6800 utilizes advanced microprocessor-controlled logic to precisely deliver a fully automatic charging routine designed to optimally charge and maintain each battery or battery pack serviced.
With a maximum charge rate of 100A, it can bring even severely depleted 4-battery and 8-battery packs back to full charge, the company says. The PL6800 adapts its charging approach based on the needs of each battery or battery pack it services. Such adaptations can include activating a soft start mode on deeply discharged batteries, a battery repair mode on distressed batteries and temperature compensation. It also incorporates numerous features to make charging safer for the operator and the vehicle/battery being charged.
