ALTEN Battery Chargers Launches a Propane Battery Charging DC Generator for Low Emission Off-Grid Solar and Battery Support

ALTEN Battery Chargers Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of the ALTEN P1 propane and natural gas battery charging DC generator. Powered by an ALTEN converted propane engine with an industry leading Subaru 5-year engine warranty, the P1 greatly improves telecom and industrial off grid solar reliability and battery life while significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

ALTEN battery charging DC generators have been used worldwide for over 20 years, originally developed for the harsh demands of the rugged Australian Outback. When compared to an antiquated setup of an AC generator and battery charger (rectifier), ALTEN battery charging DC generators require a third the runtime to recharge batteries, consumes a third the fuel, resulting in a third the maintenance. Continuing this triple threat, the ALTEN P1 propane DC generator provides additional fuel choice and flexibility to ALTEN customers, while offering a low carbon alternative.

"Many of our customers operate facilities in remote locations that are not readily accessible, places where refueling might take place only once a year. These small remote facilities typically house communications equipment, well monitoring equipment, etc., and already have a propane or fuel gas supply, as is often the case with our oil and gas or telecom customers. So the decision was pretty clear for us to develop a reliable battery charging DC generator that uses these available fuel sources" says Greg Drysdale, responsible for developing ALTEN's line of battery charging DC generators.

ALTEN, a Pacific Northwest company, manufactures a range of battery charging DC generators and hybrid energy solutions increasingly relied upon by electrical and instrumentation professionals and telecommunications integrators.

Flex-Core - Flexible Split-Core Current Transformer

The FCL model split-core current transformers have multiple benefits, including a flexible twisting motion for ease of application. Installing a split-core CT means there is no need to disconnect your primary conductor(s) which reduces downtime. Many customizations are available including extended secondary lead wire lengths, various outputs including 5A, 1A, 1VAC, and 0.333VAC, and custom rubber inserts to help center the CT and maintain accuracy. The FCL models can be used in applications up to 720VAC and have an operating frequency from 50Hz to 400Hz.
