The locking hand-wheel connector design allows for quick connections without risk of reverse polarity or accidental disconnects through the Elcon type connector. The design also allows a flush-mount to the battery that minimizes restriction of shelf space and still provides accesses to the
nameplate data on the battery itself. The “GO” (green LED), “NO GO” (red LED) operation allows for quick visual reference of battery health, and the Constant Potential (CP) MODE (blue LED) allows for easy visual reference on what charging mode the unit is set to. Blue LED off means Constant Current Mode. MarathonNorco Aerospace, Inc. has fully tested the CTC-500 on its line of batteries and has approved the use of this charger for the purpose of maintaining Marathon batteries in a stand-by condition for up to 1 year.
CTC-500: 115VAC +/- 10% 60Hz @ 0.2AMPS
Input Internally fused @ 0.75 AMPS
CTC-500: 230VAC +/- 10% 50Hz @ 0.1AMPS
Input Internally fused @ 0.5 AMPS
The input receptacle on the trickle charger is an IEC 320-type eceptacle, with a combination power inlet/outlet. This feature allows up to 10 units to be daisy-chained together with only one unit plugged into AC power. The product also comes complete with a right angle 125VAC/10Amp power
cord for use within cramped storage shelving.
OUTPUT ELECTRICAL SPECIFICATIONS
CTC-500 is capable of supplying up to 36Vdc and 500mA in many combinations for different battery types. Each unique battery type is given a specific under-voltage and current setting (set-up during calibration), which configures the charger to that type until re-calibrated.
