Maintaining standards

Battery charger and support unit from CTEK

Published:  22 February, 2016

With 1 in 4 vehicles arriving in the workshop with a battery problem it's more important than ever to ensure that the battery is supported if you are undertaking repairs, testing electrical circuits, carrying out diagnostic procedures, flash programming ECUs or programming vehicle keys. Using a battery support unit will protect the battery against failure, saving technician time, insuring against costly programming failures and preventing possible costly damage to the ECU.

The CTEK MXTS 40 is a powerful, compact and robust 40A battery charger and support unit for use with both 12V and 24V batteries. Select 'Supply' mode for up to 40A (20A in 24V mode) of support during diagnostic and flash programming work or use it as a secure power source if the battery needs to be disconnected from the vehicle. It also delivers an eight-step approach to battery care to ensure that any lead-acid battery is optimally conditioned and charged.
