Battery Charger E1401

We regret to inform you that this product is DISCONTINUED; please find our current products here

The energy supply systems of navigation aids have to function reliably during long time without
any maintenance. When using alternative energy sources - solar panels and wind generators -,
a challenge arises: to keep the batteries as full as possible while not  overcharge them.
Overcharging leads to  boiling out of the electrolyt and thus, to the damage of the batteries.
Therefore, EKTA has taken special efforts to find out the most efficient methods of charging
the batteries and, as a result, the battery charger E1401 has been developed


  • Charging of 12V NiCd and/or Pb batteries. Charging current up to 16A
  •  Using of solar panels (e.g. LA K51) and/or wind generators (e.g. Windside) as energy sources
  •   Automatic control of charging current, depending on the environmental temperature and the charge rate of the battery
  •   Protection of the batteries against overcharging and overloads
  •   Protection of the power supply system against the lightning discharges and other noisesby dedicated input filters (optional)
  •   Hermetic design, the case filled with the nitrogen gas
