Mastervolt, the Dutch-based leader in marine, solar and off-grid power products has invested in a major new research laboratory to drive forward its quest for ever more efficient electrical generation and propulsion systems. This will greatly assist the company in further developing its extensive range of hybrid and electrical drives for boats, with longer ranges and an even greater ability to regenerate underway.
The Dutch-based marine electrical specialist, Mastervolt, is responding to a huge surge of interest in diesel electric hybrid systems for boats, both in the leisure and commercial sectors. The Mastervolt product range, from whisper-quiet generators to high-capacity batteries, is already ideally suited to hybrid applications, but in the coming year the Company will be making it better still.
Using simple SMS text-messaging via a mobile phone, Mastervolt’s exciting new GPRS module not only allows you to remotely control the operation of all the electrical appliances aboard your boat, such as the battery charger, heater or dehumidifier, it also allows you to get a full report of all the essential readings, even down to the level of fuel in your tanks.
Mastervolt has developed the World’s first practical high capacity Lithium-ion battery that can be used as a direct replacement for big lead-acid battery banks on boats. This innovative new product is smaller, lighter, more efficient and has three times longer life cycle expectancy than its lead-acid equivalent.
Mastervolt has added four new models to their ChargeMaster range of new generation fully automated battery chargers. Complementing their larger ChargeMaster 2 and 3 Series, the new Series 1 range comprises two 12 Volt and two 24V chargers that are compact, light in weight and also easy and flexible for the installer.
