CTEK Launches the MXTS 70 – The Ultimate Workshop Charger Wednesday 9 November 2011 PDF Print CTEK, a leading global brand in vehicle Battery Maintenance and care, has launched the MXTS 70, a powerful 50A, 12V Battery Charger to meet the demands that complex vehicle technology and battery chemistries are placing on workshops. With the increased requirement for workshops to undertake flash programming, the MXTS 70 can support the battery during ECU procedures by supplying up to 70A of clean and constant charge, protecting against damage to ECU’s and disruption to the diagnostic process. The powerful 8-stage charger provides optimum charging in the shortest possible time, and selectable modes for specific battery types (Wet/flooded, Calcium, Gel, and AGM) ensure that a safe, fast charge is delivered to exactly meet the needs of the individual battery chemistry. The MXTS 70 also features: • Patented 8 step charging that includes o Desulphation to maximise battery capacity o Two analysis stages that will quickly identify whether the battery is capable of taking a charge and also holding charge (batteries can be revived from as low as 2v). o RECOND to revive deeply discharged batteries and eliminate acid stratification o Patented Float and pulse maintenance that ensures that batteries once fully charged can be maintained if the vehicle is kept for an extended period • A specific AGM charging cycle delivering a higher voltage charge, ideal for stop-start technology. • Selectable 24V mode setting that can provide up to 25A of charge and 35A in battery support mode. • A practical and easy to understand display which allows the complete charging process to be followed. • Temperature compensation for optimal charging The CTEK MXTS 70 smart charger maximises the performance of lead-acid batteries. By determining accurate readings from the battery, the MTXS 70 will ensure that an appropriate charging and conditioning cycle is delivered to optimise and maintain the battery for use, thereby prolonging the life of the battery. Jan-ulf Soderberg, Head of Brand and Marketing at CTEK, commented: “The feedback that we were getting from workshops was that they needed a charger capable of providing powerful battery support when flash programming work was being undertaken. There was also a great appetite for a charger with the ability to deliver a charge powerful enough to fully power AGM batteries. With the additional power, added functionality and dual charge capacity the MXTS 70 is the ultimate workshop charger.” The patented CTEK eight-stage Battery Charging system maintains and conditions the battery and can be left attached indefinitely without risk of over, or under charging. Intended for unsupervised use, the MXTS 70 is simple to connect, spark proof and reverse-polarity protected to protect the user and also the battery. Furthermore, there is no need to disconnect the battery before use as it regulates mains voltage to protect ECU settings. The unique 'Recond' mode can be selected to restore deeply discharged batteries which would normally be discarded This IP 20 rated charger requires no specialist knowledge for use, comes with a two year warranty.
