Chargers and inverters

Efficient inverters and chargers

An inverter provides access to 230VAC from the battery, making it possible to use or charge electrical equipment in the vehicle. Intelligent battery chargers help maintain battery performance. Our chargers analyze the battery status and provide optimal, temperature adjusted charging curves. Our inverters and chargers are compact as well as water-, dust- and shock-resistant.

Orange cable

Added safety for emergency personel

Our cables are developed with emergency workers in mind. 230V cables are bright orange, making them easier to locate and identify when there is no time to waste.

Rettbox connection

Accessories for emergency services

The RETTBOX® is an electromagnetic self-ejecting connector system. It consists of a coupler socket and an inlet mounted in a box. When the ignition in the vehicle is turned, a solenoid plunger lifts the socket release latch and ejects the plug from the inlet. This allows rescue workers to save time when the alarm sounds.
