  • Description

    The Alpha Charging System High Performance Series provides excellent reliability and ultimate efficiency in meeting the power requirements for many types of system applications. The ACS HP Series is designed to charge all types of stationary batteries (flooded lead acid, VRLA, and NiCd) for industrial, utility, petrochemical and fire/utility applications. A compact 4RU shelf accommodates up to five, hot swappable, fan cooled Cordex™ 4.4kW rectifiers. The 4.4kW Cordex rectifiers possess extremely high density, providing the most power in the least amount of space. Whether used in a local or remote setup, system adjustment and control is a simple single-step process via the Cordex CXC touch screen system controller or via an Ethernet connection and an internet browser. Battery management and data logging are standard system features.
