Texas-based aircraft battery and power equipment manufacturer MarathonNorco is on hand at NBAA’12 to introduce the latest addition to its line of Christie battery analyzers. The RF80-M aircraft battery charger/analyzer incorporates new advanced micro-controller technology with a programmable touchscreen display, while building on the company’s existing power circuitry and durability from its previous models. Battery analysis can be performed either in manual mode or by utilizing the system’s programmable modes. The RF80-M will store up to 100 battery processing programs. Program functions include charge, discharge and wait steps with audible and visual alerts. According to the manufacturer (Booth No. 3182), the new unit is the only aircraft battery charger on the market with three different charge methods: constant current, constant potential and the company’s exclusive ReFlex fast charge setting.
