The Hawkins Smart-15 is a microprocessor controlled charger suitable to keep larger batteries that are not in daily use, fully charged by connecting it to the battery indefinitely. The Hawkins Smart 15 is designed for standby generators, automated gates in complexes, caravans and the like. The Hawkins Smart 15 is designed for both SEALED as well as VENTILATED batteries.
The 5A / 10A switch allows charging od a wide range of battery sizes (40Ah to 120Ah). The Hawkins Smart-15 is equipped with POLARITY PROTECTION to prevent reverse polarity connection as well as VOLTAGE CONTROL to prevent over charging.
The Hawkins Smart-15 is an automatic charger which delivers its rated current until the voltage on the battery reaches a preset level. The charger will then switch off, wait for the battery to drop down to a minimum set point, and then switch on again. The Smart-15 will cycle in this fashion indefinitely. The Smart-15 is electronically controlled and may be left permanently attached to the battery without danger, provided the battery’s condition is monitored on a regular basis.
Potential free clamps avoid sparking when connecting or removing the battery clamps in a potentially volatile environment. The charger is reverse polarity protected. The Hawkins Smart range of chargers were designed in compliance with IEC 335-2-2 and has a two year limited warranty against defects in materials and workmanship
The Hawkins Smart-15 charger has replaceable fuses to protect against prolonged fault conditions. Smart chargers require a minimum voltage on the batteries before they will start charging, for a 12V battery it is 10V.
The Hawkins Smart-15 is locally manufactured.
