Device tests, charges batteries in one process
Jan 1, 2003 12:00 PM
The DFC-12 Diagnostic Fast Charger from PulseTech Products Corp solves 12-volt lead-acid battery problems in less than an hour, and in many cases, around 30 minutes. This portable system is a battery charger and tester in one.
To use DFC-12, connect it to a battery, enter the rating, and press “enter.” Using Conductance Controlled Charging (C3) technology, it tests the battery at the beginning, during, and after charging. The system analyzes the battery's condition, then makes a “replace” or “charge” decision. If the battery requires charging, DFC-12 starts the diagnostic fast-charging process. It's designed to stress the battery and expose hidden defects by combining testing and charging measurements. Within the next five minutes, the system will determine if the battery needs more charging or should be replaced.
At the end of the process, the system sounds a loud tone. It then removes surface charge and performs one last test to ensure an accurate decision. To learn more, contact PulseTech, 1100 S Kimball Ave, Southlake TX 76092.
