Curtis Instruments was recently proud and delighted to hold their latest customer seminar at their UK Northampton offices with the focus on ensuring their nationwide team of independent charger agents are up to speed with the latest range introductions and why this was important to them and the sector at large.
The agents spent a convivial day networking together including quality hospitality and were trained on the new Curtis and the current important industry legislation.
Key aspects covered included the new DIN safety standard 41774 for pulse charge curves, which is how the recently launched 8 hour PrimoPulse charger operates.
Of particular note and interest to the audience was how the pulse charging method provides users with significant cost savings: – Energy savings due to lower charge factor (typically 8-10% compared to 16-20% for Wa and WoWa charging): – Faster charging compared to Wa chargers: – Reduced water consumption because due to lower charge factor and consequently less battery maintenance: and reduced minimum battery temperature increase due to the lower charge factor and resulting increased battery life.
The event was perceived as an excellent overall success combining as it did discussion about the nature of the market, product awareness, technical training and health & safety update.
