48 Volt 50 Amp Forklift Battery Charger


The PBM Industrial 48 Volt 50 Amp Battery Chargers are well built for forklift or other industrial applications where a smart charger of high amp output is appropriate, and single phase input is desired or required because of availability. There are no manual timers to mess with, as the internal charge regulation is done by the microprocessor for a full charge every time. Economical yet powerful enough to handle most forklift applications, these chargers are designed to withstand continuous duty use quietly and efficiently. The linear transformer and microprocessor control give years of trouble free service. They have a 4 digit LDC display with 12 functions. These units complete the charge and go into a maintenance mode. For wet cell lead acid batteries, 250 to 350 AH.
