CTEK, a specialist in the care and maintenance of vehicle batteries, has announced that its PRO120 Battery Charger and Power supply is now approved by Mercedes-Benz GSP. The unit meets W 000 588 00 81 00 charger requirements as described in Mercedes-Benz Workshop Information-System (WIS). PMF finds out more.
Recognised for its ability to ‘charge and recharge starter batteries without disconnection from the on-board electrical system’, this unit can deliver up to 120A of battery charge or battery support safely and efficiently, and it’s also very simple to operate.
The PRO120 restores, charges and reconditions the battery using a patented multi-step charging process and is compatible with all types of 12V battery, including lithium (LiFePO4). The PRO120’s unique patent that is applied for Adaptive Charging mode automatically recognizes the size of the battery and selects the optimum charging settings for the fastest charge – making operation quicker and easier than ever.
In Supply mode, the PRO120 Delivers 120A of power, even at 13.8V, to support uninterrupted flashing and diagnostic procedures, enabling these procedures to be completed within the standard time set by Mercedes. It features Resonance Converter charging technology for a rapid response to any changes in power demands, so the PRO120 can meet the exact changing current needs during flashing and diagnostic procedures. Workshops can avoid stalling of the process and/or damage to vehicle components by using the PRO120.
Henk Lubberts, Director Global OE at CTEK, said “Our PRO120 unit is proving to be the professional workshop’s choice thanks to its safety, reliability, power and guarantee that it will help technicians to get the job done in the shortest possible time. This approval from Mercedes is a real testament to this, and we are really proud of this recognition.”
