The new 4-bank Battery Maintenance Station, Model No. PL4020, from SOLAR enables charging/maintaining of four batteries simultaneously. Combining fully automatic operation and the ability to properly charge most lead acid battery types, the PL4020 provides the precision, effectiveness and versatility needed to meet the needs of mechanical repair shops, collision repair facilities, fleet operations, marinas and consumers.
The PRO-LOGIX PL4020 utilizes advanced microprocessor-controlled logic to precisely deliver a fully automatic charging routine designed to optimally charge and maintain each battery serviced. Each channel is fully independent, so a problem battery on one channel does not impact the rest of the batteries under charge. This also allows charging of any combination of battery types across the four channels, as the battery type is selected uniquely for each channel. The PL4020 features the ability to properly charge a wide variety of lead acid battery types, including Conventional, AGM, Spiral Wound, Start-Stop, Deep Cycle and Marine batteries.
Like all PRO-LOGIX charger/maintainers, the PL4020 executes a multi-phase charging routine to bring batteries back to full charge and then switches to an enhanced maintenance mode to provide optimal battery maintenance, whether a battery is left on it for days, weeks or months. The enhanced PRO-LOGIX maintenance routine makes this a perfect tool for collision repair facilities, retail battery operations, marinas and consumers with seasonal use vehicles.
The PRO-LOGIX PL4020 adapts its approach based on the needs of each battery it services. Such adaptations can include activating a soft start mode on deeply discharged batteries, a battery repair mode on older/distressed batteries and temperature compensation to ensure a proper charge even when charging in extreme temperatures. It also incorporates numerous features to make charging safer for the operator and the vehicle/battery being charged, including over-voltage protection, reverse polarity protection and battery fault detection.
The unit comes equipped with four sets of standard length clamp accessories (replacement part PLA61). It also has an available 10’ extension cord (PLA62), with short length clamp set (PLA63) and ring terminal kit (PLA64). The short length accessories should only be used with the extension cord. The extension cord and accessories extend the unit’s output to reach batteries in vehicles that cannot be brought closely to the Battery Maintenance Station.
