February 2017 | NOLN 63 Charge It All Clore Automotive recently released the new Pro-Logix 2A x 4 Channel Battery Maintenance Station from Solar that uti- lizes advanced microprocessor-controlled logic to optimally charge up to four bat- teries at once. Each channel is fully inde- pendent, so any combination of lead acid battery types can be charged without af- fecting the others — conventional, AGM, spiral wound, start-stop, deep cycle and marine. e charger features soft start mode for deeply discharged batteries, battery repair mode for older/distressed batteries and temperature compensation for extreme temperatures. It also has operator-safety features including over-voltage protec- tion, reverse polarity protection and bat- tery fault detection.

Designed for speed and simplici- ty, the ProVac Zoom is powerful, fast and easy to use. e ProVac Zoom's patent-pending Z-Mount system uses tiny ratchet teeth and a quick release lever. is combina- tion allows for super-fast, yet adjustable, mounting against the glass, and it virtu- ally eliminates the risk of over tightening against the glass, which is the most com- mon reason for a crack spreading during the repair. It also features a new seal, which greatly reduces the possibility of flowering. e ProVac Zoom also pulls the quickest and strongest vacuum of any of GlasWeld's windshield repair injectors. Achieving a full vacuum in less than three turns of the handle, it pulls a vacuum three times fast- er and more than 20 percent stronger than GlasWeld's ecoVac or G3 injectors.
