Battery Charger E1402

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 duringlong time without
any maintenance. To achieve this, the system has to keep the batteries as full as possible
while not overcharge them. The overcharging would lead 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 E1402
has been developed

  • Charging of 12V NiCd and/or Pb batteries. Charging current up to 3A
  • Using mains supply of 220V 50Hz as energy source
  • Automatic control of charging current, depending on the  environment temperature and on the charge rate of the batteries
  • Protection of the batteries against overcharging and overload
  • Protection of the power supply system against the lightning discharges and other noise by dedicated input filters (optional)
  • Hermetic design, case filled with nitrogen gas
  • If the current 3A is not sufficient, an additional 3A current generator E143 may be added to the charger. The generator E143 does not include the current regulator and thus, it is cheaper
