We have focused our extensive R&D program on solar
power. Designed for the rugged demands of heavy-duty industrial markets,
our reliable and robust products are built to provide years of trouble
Using alternative sources of energy involves some form of energy storage
and conversion. We provide products that use the output from any of
these sources to charge batteries (DC to AC source battery chargers), as
well as products to convert the output of the batteries to the required
power at the load, including both DC-DC Converters and DC-AC Inverters.
Specifically designed for use with a wide range of photovoltaic cells,
our SolarMax, 100Amp MPPT Solar Charge Controller is suitable for many
Systems has taken on many custom design projects. One such project was
our Ni-Cad Solar Battery Charger. Custom-built for Canadian National
Railways (CNR), it converts the output from a 6 or 12-volt, nominal
solar panel to 1.5 or 3.0 VDC to charge high-capacity Ni-Cad batteries,
at up to 15 amps, and meets the stringent requirements for mounting
directly adjacent to railway tracks in any ambient temperature.
