ChargeMaster - Charges 3 batteries simultaneously
Mastervolt's range of battery chargers for the marine market is strengthened with the introduction of their brand new generation of chargers the "ChargeMaster" to complement the existing IVO and Mass ranges. The range consists of six robust and reliable chargers, especially developed for all battery systems onboard medium-sized yachts.

Mastervolt tell us that these compact chargers can charge three battery sets simultaneously with a charge efficiency of over 90%. The design allows quick and easy installation of the chargers via secure connections. A large, clear LCD display provides information on the charge current, charge voltage and charge phase for all three battery sets.
The idea is to provide boat builders and installers with a charger suitable for every system, and one which is also ready for the monitoring systems of the future. The sophisticated design is thought through, down to the smallest details 'captive fixing' screws for the electrical connections prevent the possibility of fixings lost into the bilge. The electrical connection box is designed to ensure quick and safe installation.
The ChargeMaster is designed to function anywhere and anytime, is easy to connect to shore or generator power. Autoranging guarantees batteries will be charged between 90V and 265V and 50 and 60Hz inputs. 3-Stage Plus technology ensures a reliable and complete charge. Batteries are charged fully and safely, resulting in longer battery life.
All ChargeMasters have a clear and brightly-lit LCD display (backlight). This provides information on the charge current, charge voltage and charge phase of all three connected battery sets. All functions can be checked with only three buttons.
The ChargeMaster range consists of two 12V chargers (70 and 100A) and four 24V chargers (40, 60, 80, 100A). The range will be extended in late 2008 with battery chargers for smaller motor and sailing yachts.
Each ChargeMaster is supplied with a free temperature sensor for the main battery.
