Cristec CPS3 48-15

48V / 15A Battery Charger


MRP: £ 606.80 (excl. VAT)
Our Price: £ 558.26 (excl. VAT)

Cristec battery chargers feature fully-automatic 3-stage charging and can be left permanently connected to the batteries to maintain their charge. These state-of-the-art chargers can accept a wide input power supply range, have PFC (power factor correction) and modern HF technology to increase performance and efficiency. Dip switch programming allows you to select the right charge curve for the battery type you have and all CPS3 chargers up to 80A have 3 independent outputs (to charge 3 separate battery banks) and a fourth terminal to charge additional battery banks via a charge splitter.
A special feature of these chargers is that one of the terminals is specially modified for the function of charging an engine start battery. It has modified output voltages as engine start batteries do not need the same charging settings as the service batteries.

Additional Information


Reinforced protection
Anti-drip covering.
Electronic board coated with waterproof varnish.
Optimal ergonomics: Easy to install
CPS3 battery chargers can be fixed vertically or horizontally.
The charger can be accessed externally by removing the front yellow housing.
AC and DC connections as well as charger settings are grouped together on the PCB in a connection area that ensures a safe, quick and easy installation.
The DC connection on threaded rods is particularly robust and practical due to the available space.
Front panel indicators: Easy to read
3 panel indicators are clearly visible on the front of the charger enabling easy monitoring of charger operation.
Remote indicators are also available as an option.
Optional connection for external battery temperature sensor enables optimization of battery charging and/or a digital display unit to check battery state.
Multiple outputs: Charge 3 batteries simultaneously
CPS3 battery chargers have 3 independent outputs (except models > 80A) which can individually deliver nominal output current.
One of these outputs is designed for matching specific engine battery requirements for marine application.
The built-in battery isolator on each battery bank means the batteries stay permanently connected to the charger and there is no need to disconnect them during engine startup.
Choose your charging curve: Safety and freedom
On CPS3 chargers the BOOST phase is particularly safe as it is not only timed but also current controlled. In the event of a cut in the charger power-supply the charging cycle does not reset.
The 3-step charge mode being faster (BOOST, ABSORPTION and FLOATING) it is particularly useful when you run out of time to charge the batteries (charger powered from a generator, short stay in the marina, etc.).
It is possible to interrupt the Boost phase with an internal switch for specific applications where this function is not required: wintering, self-maintaining battery
Choose your battery type: Made-to-measure battery charging
As your choice regarding battery technology is extensive, you have to make sure charging characteristics comply with your specific battery type. CPS3 battery chargers have internal selectors for setting the charge level in compliance with the battery technology and application : there are 11 settings such as Lead-sealed, Calcium-Lead, AGM, Gel, etc.
charge or when the charger is used as direct current regulated and filtered power supply.
Universal AC powering: Worldwide use
The AC input voltage and frequency auto-ranging – from 85 to 265 VAC and from 47 to 65 Hz – guarantees batteries can be charged anywhere (in Europe and in the USA), from commercial mains or generators, even when available power is limited (end of pontoon, foreign network, etc.). Except model 24V/150A 400VAC 3 phases.
