Revoletrix PowerLabs 8x2

Revoletrix PowerLabs 8x2


Revolectrix continues the PowerLab tradition of excellence with the new Dual PowerLab 8x2. With completely independent dual channel operation, this monster boasts 1344W of output power per channel for a total of 2688W all told! This kind of power coupled with the extremely user-friendly and popular PowerLab interface, and features no one else in the industry can touch, like our PC compatible Charge Control Software (CCS) put this unit squarely at the top of the food chain and all for a price that might surprise you.

The Cellpro Dual PowerLab (DPL) 8x2 Battery Workstation directly supports all Cellpro Revolectrix battery packs using the default FMA wiring mode (interconnection requires purchase of the available basic Cellpro PowerLab adapter PN (CP8S-PA8S or CP8S-PA8S-US). FMA sells adapters separately to interface with various manufacturer's batteries, including the safe parallel adapters which can be daisy-chained to allow simultaneous, safe parallel charge of multiple packs or our MPA, which is likely the safest parallel board on the market.

Per-Channel Specifications
