Ambulance and medical applications
ASM3 chosen by London Ambulance Service for their front line A+E vehicles!
The "Auxiliary System Manager 3" is the latest power and control system from Antares that provides a complete battery management. This system offers all the benefits of the original Mercedes Ambulance Power pack, and has been designed in a modular way and can be easily standardized across any chassis type (not just Mercedes Sprinter) and therefore across the entire front-line fleet.
Virtual Alternator System chosen by multiple Ambulance Trusts for all Ambulance vehicles to optimise battery charging, management and protection
Charge any battery bank, anywhere on your vehicle, from any source, faster!
The Virtual Alternator overcomes the problem of how to charge auxiliary batteries correctly, wherever they are situated on the vehicle, especially when engine run-time is in short supply.
Cable volt drop, temperature variation, location and battery technology all demand a unique charging regime at the aux battery. This is invariably different from the what the OEM alternator gives which will be optimised for the cranking battery. Where the VA is mounted a long way from the aux battery, or if the aux battery is mounted "outside" temperature sensors can also be added.
The VA system also includes auto-split-charge, aux battery protect, auto isolate, emergency start and manual on/off for the aux loads. The Antares VA system comes pre-configured for optimal charging of our battery range - if you would like to implement your own choice of battery we an re-programme the units to suit. Contact Us.
